The Grammys got its own dosage of musical comedy tonight!
Tony Award-winners and Broadway stars Patti LuPone and Ben Platt required to the Madison Square Garden phase at the 2018 Grammy Awards Sunday night to carry out a homage to authors Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leonard Bernstein.
Platt, 24, used up the Bernstein part of the homage, singing “Somewhere” from West Side Story prior to LuPone, 68, brought down the home repeating her renowned Tony-winning function of Evita, singing “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” a number she formerly carried out on the 1981 Grammys.
The efficiency was the most recent in Broadway minutes at the Grammy Awards after Lin-Manuel Miranda and the Hamilton cast provided an unique live efficiency of that musical’s opening number from the phase of the Richard Rodgers Theatre in 2016.
Though there is a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album (which Dear Evan Hansen‘s Benj Pasek and Justin Paul won earlier in the evening), Broadway doesn’ t typically get love on a program committed to more radio-friendly categories. Platt and LuPone are 2 of Broadway’s greatest stars– LuPone, famous for lots of functions, most just recently appeared last season in War Paint, while Platt sealed his location in Broadway history coming from the title function in Dear Evan Hansen.Related youtube video: (not from post)
