EDITED: Sorry, the original video I had linked to was taken down between the time I typed up this post and the time it was published. I have replaced the faulty link with the official Grammys video. I have also been able to add Lin-Manuel’s acceptance speech. Please let us know if you have any trouble with either video.
The Hamilton cast opened the Grammy Awards via satellite from their home base, the Richard Rodgers Theater in NYC. This was the first time in five years that a Broadway number was performed at the Grammys. To top it all off, Hamilton won the Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album and Lin-Manuel Miranda rapped his acceptance speech!
Watch the opening number and enjoy.
BONUS: Here’s Lin-Manuel’s acceptance speech:
