This weekend saw Broadway’s best and brightest gathering for the prestigious 68th Tony Awards.

Hugh Jackman hosted the awards this year and as well as his cheerful hosting skills he showed off some tap dancing moves when he joined the cast of the musical ‘After Midnight’ for a fantastic performance of It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It ‘Aint Got That Swing).

However the best performance of the night came from Neil Patrick Harris who performed ‘Sugar Daddy’ from Hedwig and the Angry Inch after being introduced on to the stage by legendary drag queen RuPaul. Neil wowed the audience with this high-energy performance that saw him licking Samuel L Jackson’s glasses and treating Sting to a lap dance!

Hedwig was one of the biggest winners of the night: Best performance by an actress in a featured role in a musical was won by Lena Hall, Neil Patrick Harris won Best performance by an actor in a leading role in a musical and the musical also scooped the award for Best Revival of a Musical.
