'Hamilton' Tony Awards Performance Gets Obama Intro! (Video)

Lin-Manuel Miranda is front and center during Hamilton’s highly anticipated performance at the 2016 Tony Awards held at the Beacon Theatre on Sunday (June 12) in New York City.

The 36-year-old actor has won two awards already for his work on the smash hit show – Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score. He was also nominated for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical, but lost to his co-star Leslie Odom Jr.

Lin was joined on stage by co-stars like Leslie, Christopher Jackson, Phillipa Soo, Daveed Diggs, Renee Elise Goldsberry, and more.

The performance was introduced by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, who have both seen the musical and have invited the cast to the White House in the past. Watch below!
