Yup, this was most definitely one of the greatest moments of the night! The cast of ‘Hamilton’ performed their show’s opening number at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 15, and we literally can’t stop replaying it in our heads. Watch here in case you missed it!
The Grammy Awards gave us a taste of about just every genre of music out there — even Musical Theater got some love thanks to the amazing cast of Hamilton! In a live broadcast from New York City, the whole ensemble gave an epic performance of the song “Alexander Hamilton,” and we have the full video right here.
The show’s star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, led the charge during the incredible performance, and since we rarely get to see Broadway performances at a show as big as this one, it was quite a treat. “Alexander Hamilton” is the show’s opening number, so it really sets the scene for the entire play, so it was definitely a great choice for the cast to sing this one! Of course, they all sounded beyond amazing.
From the singing to the choreography and costumes, this number was absolute perfection — everyone played their part and it was such a treat. Other cast members featured include Leslie Odom Jr., Renee Elise Goldsberry, Phillipa Soo, Christopher Jackson, Jasmine Cephas Jone, Daveed Diggs and Anthony Ramos. Great job to all!
As if this wasn’t already a big enough moment for the cast, things got even better as the show progressed — Hamilton won the Grammy for Best Musical Theater album! With cameras already at the Richard Rodgers Theater in the Big Apple, the group was able to accept and give their acceptance speech live, while their audience went totally nuts. Congratulations!
