Last night's 68th Annual Tony Awards brought loads of fun with lively performances, gracious acceptance speeches and an experienced host who knows how to keep a crowd entertained!
Hugh Jackman, hosting the awards show for his fourth time, provided plenty of laughs (and musical numbers!), but also did his best to keep the 3-hour plus show moving at a quick pace.
There were a lot of highlights from the Radio City Music Hall-hosted event, but we've narrowed it down to our six favorites!
1. Hugh Jackman's Opening Number
The Australian actor channeled performer Bobby Van in the 1953 musical Small Town Girl for a bouncing opening number that lasted an impressive 4-1/2 minutes and included many of the night's nominees!
2. Audra McDonald's Historic Win
The Broadway veteran made history with her sixth Tony award, becoming the first person to win in all four acting categories. The 43-year-old was understandably emotional, telling the audience, "I'm standing on Lena Horne, I'm standing on Maya Angelou, Diane Carroll, Ruby Dee, and most of all, Billie Holiday," who she portrays in the play, "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill."
3. Celebrating 10 Years of "Wicked"
The Wizard of Oz prequel, "Wicked," has dazzled audiences on Broadway for 10 years and to celebrate that impressive milestone, the show's current leads, Jenni Barber and Christine Dwyer, performed the fan favorite duet, "For Good."
4. Neil Patrick Harris' Performance of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch"
We've never seen Neil quite like this! Playing an East German transgender singer, the How I Met Your Mother star donned a wig and short shorts to perform a song from the Tony winning musical, which included a lap dance on Sting and licking Samuel L. Jackson's glasses!
5. Carole King Makes A Surprise Appearance
Nominated for the top prize, the cast performance of "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical," was introduced by the singing legend herself. But to the surprise of the audience, the 72-year-old soon joined Jesse Mueller, who portrays her in the show, onstage to sing her classic 1971 song, "I Feel the Earth Move."
6. "Aladdin's James Monroe Iglehart Gives A Spirited Acceptance Speech
After winning Best Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical for his role of the Genie in "Aladdin," James delighted the audience with his high energy acceptance speech, which included a "praise shout" and happy dance.
