Live With Kelly and Michael

These two.

Every so often, a perfectly matched pair enters our mortal orbit. You know, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford, Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter, Crockett and Tubbs, Milo and Otis...

And we can count Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan among the chosen duos!

We were reminded of how it's the little things (and facial expressions) that matter earlier today when Strahan accidentally gave away a trip because he jumped the gun with a call-in contestant. The moment could have been really awkward, but...

Oh heck, it was really awkward, and the fact that Ripa was there to make him feel both better and just a little bit more like a chump was proof positive that they've got it right.

It's all about the chemistry, really, each being charismatic on his or her own but doubly so when they come together.

We loved Ripa with Regis Philbin and are wary of change, so it makes us extra happy these days to see how organically she and Strahan have become a cohesive unit—chatting with celebs, trading good-natured jabs and otherwise mixing it up like champs on Live! With Kelly and Michael on a near-daily basis for what will be three years come September.

With that in mind, check out Kelly and Michael's best moments on Live! and enjoy the jaunt down memory lane!
