Hey, Tony Awards? The 90s called and they want their rap-meets-musical comedy bit back.
They also mentioned they would like us to return this phone call joke…
Hugh Jackman had us all shaking our heads when he tried to put some swag into a performance of Rock Island from The Music Man, but then- as he does with all things- he REALLY committed.
The host went from hop to hip hop with special guests T.I. and LL Cool J in the ill-advised rap revival of the Broadway classic.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see two great tastes that do NOT taste great together!

Sting may have gotten one sexy lap dance from Neil Patrick Harris earlier in the evening– but he sure looked more comfortable with a guitar in his lap!
When The Police frontman took the stage at the Tony Awards, he really got into a sexy rockstar groove!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see Sting perform the title song from his autobiographical show The Last Ship!

It's hard to believe that it's been 10 year since Broadway started seeing Green, but indeed, the Tony Awards just paid tribute to Wicked on their decade of delight on the Great White Way.
You would think that celebrating a momentous occasion like this would involve the original besties in the roles Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth — but alas, it did not.
Still, the ladies who are currently in the roles do the original ladies justice and for nothing else, you should watch this performance to take you back to your first time seeing the wicked talented musical!

The Tony Awards are usually so classy. Who knew a fight would break out?
Well, when the cast of the Rocky musical is on hand (with boxing glove on hand), you know it's going to be a slugfest!
Sylvester Stallone would be proud. We only wish this rock em', sock 'em routine had gotten nominated for Best Musical!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the singing, dancing, punching performance!

Now, THAT is how you bring the house down!
She's a two-time winner, close to nabbing her third tonight, and Sutton Foster just continues to prove what an astounding talent she really is!
