James Corden & 'Hamilton' Cast Open Tony Awards 2016 (Video)

James Corden wears a Les Miserables costume while performing the opening number at the 2016 Tony Awards held at the Beacon Theatre on Sunday (June 12) in New York City.

The show started with a Hamilton parody featuring cast members Leslie Odom Jr., Daveed Diggs, and more singing about James as the host.

James then did a monologue and segued into a number in which he sang about his childhood and how he dreamed of being in Broadway musicals. It ended with him riffing along to some show tunes and was hilarious.

All 20 of the musical acting nominees also stepped out on stage for the opening!
