Harry rocked a bold yellow and brown striped jumpsuit for the performance, and appeared happy to be with fans despite the weather.

Hoda and Savannah's appearance came a day after they transformed themselves into characters from New York in the 1940s for a special rendition of an old radio play, Murder in Studio One.

Hoda and Savannah took on the leading roles, and they were joined by the likes of Al Roker, Jenna Bush Hager, Craig Melvin, Sheinelle Jones, Dylan Dreyer, and Tom Llama for the Today segment.
