Kelly Ripa joins Madonna onstage in NYC for ‘Vogue’ during ‘Celebration’ tour

Madonna superfan Kelly Ripa was overwhelmed with glee as she joined the singer onstage Monday night.

Madonna, 65, invited the “Live with Kelly and Mark” co-host, 53, to guest judge the “Vogue” ballroom portion of her “Celebration” tour at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Ripa and the Queen of Pop gave a perfect score to the dancers, both holding up a large sign with the number 10.

The talk show host wore a sleek black jumpsuit, black bedazzled heels and a pink feather fanny pack for her concert cameo. Meanwhile, Madonna stunned in a sparkly strapless corset top and fishnet tights.

Ripa was photographed with a huge smile on her face as Madge gave her a big hug while the audience cheered.

Social media users also raved about Ripa’s appearance, with many noting that the former “All My Children” star is a known fan.

“Kelly Ripa, THE Madonna fan, was the guest judge for Vogue last night in MSG,” one person tweeted Tuesday.

“@KellyRipa do you know that all Madonna fans love you? btw your shirt slayed,” another wrote, referring to Ripa wearing a vintage Madonna tour T-shirt on “Live” recently.

“Good to see, she’s a loyal fan,” a fifth fan added.

Other celebrities previously tapped to judge “Vogue” have included Diplo, Julia Fox, Donatella Versace, Debi Mazar, Charlie Hunnam, Amy Schumer, Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon and more.

Ripa is known for discussing her Madonna fandom on her talk show and once even became emotional while recalling a time she had to miss the “Like a Prayer” singer’s concert because she was extremely sick.

“It was allegedly a beautiful weekend,” she told her husband and co-host, Mark Consuelos, in December 2023 before joking, “I wouldn’t know because, for the second time this month, I took to my deathbed.”

At the time, Ripa was suffering from a high fever, hallucinating and throwing up.

“You want to know how sick I was? I was so sick that I missed the Madonna concert on Saturday,” she said, with Consuelos, 52, noting that he still went to the show without her.

Ripa called Madonna’s performance “unbelievable” before holding back tears as she reiterated that she “wasn’t there.”

“I don’t know why I’m getting choked up, but I am,” she said as her eyes watered.

Consuelos assured his wife that he would take her to the next show, and fortunately for her, he followed through.
