Somebody call Broadway!

On Tuesday, Nicole Scherzinger and Joe Jonas performed It Sucks to Be Me from Broadway's hit Avenue Q for NBC's competition show, I Can Do That. And they SLAYED it!

In case you forgot, I Can Do That takes celebrities and tasks them to master a talent or skill where the audience can judge who did it better.

In this case — it was a pretty close call at whether the former Jonas Brother or the former Pussycat Doll mastered the tongue-in-cheek musical.

However, we'll probably have to give this one to Nicole. She is a seasoned pro, having just finished her run in Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic Cats in the West End.

Don't cha wish… Nicole was currently on Broadway?! We know, we do!

Don't believe us?! Be sure to ch-ch-check out their full performance (below)!

Bad news on Broadway!

After getting no love at the Tonys this year, it's been announced that the revival of Gigi will give its final performance on June 21!

The Vanessa Hudgens-led production officially opened on April 8 at the Neil Simon Theatre. At the time of closing, Gigi will have played 20 previews and 86 regular performances.

Originally adapted for the stage in 1951 starring an unknown Audrey Hepburn, the musical is based on the 1944 novel by Colette about a free-spirited girl in Paris who falls in love with a wealthy playboy.

But don't worry, a national tour is in works for the revival in the 2016-17 season! Yayyy!

It was also announced that Broadway musical The Visit has a set closing date for June 14!

The dark musical by the Chicago songwriting team of Kander and Ebb was nominated for five Tonys, but walked away empty handed!

It's always sad to see a show close, but as they say — that's show business!

Listen To This: Take Flight!

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesListen To ThisKiesza

Matthew Morrison's performance of Stronger at the Tony Awards was one of our highlights of the show! Not only is he great, but the song itself is sooooo good!

AND, in an unusual move, entertainment mogul Harvey Weinstein - who produced the Broadway musical based on his film - released a concept album concurrently with an official cast recording.

The concept album has recording artists covering the songs from the show, and one of our most Perezcious faves, Kiesza, covered Stronger.

The arrangement is Gloria Estefan's Reach meets The Lion King. Epic!

And Kiesza's vocals are so crazy good on this! SOARING!

Check out the greatness above!!

Did You Think The Tony Awards Red Carpet Was A Little More Glam Than In Past Years?? You Can Thank Anna Wintour For That!!

The Queen of Fashion just expanded her empire!

The Tony Awards may be the most prestigious award show for musical theater, but the red carpet hasn't always reflected the elegance of the night… Until 2015, that is!

If the gowns worn by the nominees and Broadway A-Listers on Sunday seemed more extravagant to you than in past years, that was totally intentional.

In fact, Anna Wintour herself single-handedly transformed the Tonys red carpet after being asked to help by head of the American Theater Wing William Ivey Long and New York City celeb Jordan Roth.

In an interview before the Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming-hosted ceremony, Anna talked about bringing her Vogue style to the event, saying:

An 11-Year-Old Gave Arguably The Best Performance At The Tony Awards, But Watch Her Before Fun Home Made It Big HERE!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway BabiesAwardzTony AwardsCute Kidz

Yaaaaaaaas queen!

By now you've probably heard that Fun Home walked away as the clear winner from Sunday night's Tony Awards with five awards.

And although she didn't win the award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical, Sydney Lucas may have actually stolen the show.

That's because the 11-year-old managed to best practically all of her elders to give a powerhouse performance of Ring of Keys, and we were just blown away by her talent.

But as if being able to carry a song at age 11 isn't impressive enough, we just found footage of Syndey singing the same song back in 2012 at the Public Theater Block Party before the award-winning musical made it big!

Ch-ch-check out Syndey's just-as-impressive performance from three years ago (below)!!!
