The ladies were giving out high-fives, hugs, T-shirts and more throughout the hour! The audiences will now be a regular part of TODAY with Hoda & Jenna on Thursdays and Fridays.
"This may seem weird at home - we're weeping,'' an emotional Hoda said to start the show. "This is kind of a big day for us."
"Joel, we're practicing for you!" Jenna said.
Hoda made sure to soak in the atmosphere.
"Sometimes, you just need to just take one second and just literally sit in the moment,'' she said. "Do you all mind if for like 10 seconds, we just marvel at your awesomeness!"
The ladies also introduced their new DJ, Marjorie Gubelmann, better known as DJ Mad Marj. She is a 50-year-old mom of a teenager who has DJed some of the hottest parties in New York City for years and opened for acts like Katy Perry and Cardi B after becoming a DJ later in her career.
Hoda and Jenna also got cheers for their first show before a live studio audience from Bravo's Andy Cohen, the host of "Watch What Happens Live," and pop star and talk show host Kelly Clarkson. They also got an in-studio surprise from another music star, Meghan Trainor.
Congrats on your first big show, ladies!
