The 2014 Tony Awards came and went, but not before dazzling us with a bevy of live performances. Audiences were treated with tunes not only from this year's musical nominees, but also hits from other new tuners of the season, glimpses of upcoming shows and of course, numbers from the song and dance man himself, our emcee Hugh Jackman. We asked fans which performance from Broadway's biggest night they thought was the biggest showstopper. The votes are in, and here's what you had to say! Want to go back and revisit your favorite? Check them all out here!
1. If/Then — 26%
Wait, Idina Menzel won a Broadway.com poll? Who saw that one coming?! The Tony winner, who was nominated for her performance as Elizabeth in the Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey tuner, single-handedly brought down the house with her big 11:00 number, “Always Starting Over.” With her powerful anthem receiving an impressive 26% of the vote, maybe that’s enough incentive for Menzel to rock Radio City with this number again on June 16.
2. Hedwig & the Angry Inch — 23%
Tony winners Neil Patrick Harris and Lena Hall broke all sorts of rules with their energetic performance of “Sugar Daddy.” For instance, licking Samuel L. Jackson’s glasses is usually a no-no. But that doesn’t stop Hedwig, who also leapt from the stage to carwash Orlando Bloom, give Sting a lapdance and make out with David Burtka (shh, don’t tell Harris!).
3. A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder— 11%
The charming trio of Bryce Pinkham, Lauren Worsham and Lisa O’Hare performed “I’ve Decided to Marry You,” the refrain of which will likely linger in your head for weeks to come. A hysterical introduction from fellow costar Jefferson Mays as three of the D’Ysquiths made the performance from this year’s Best Musical victor all the more rewind-worthy.
