Hamilton Grammys 2016 Performance

Hamilton Cast Performs at Grammy Awards 2016 — Grade Their Big Number

The cast of Broadway’s Hamilton did not throw away its shot Monday, turning in a crowd-pleasing Grammys performance of the musical’s opening number, “Alexander Hamilton.” (The original cast recording is up for best Musical Theater Album.)

Creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda and his cast — including Renee Elise Goldsberry (One Life to LiveThe Good Wife) and Leslie Odom Jr. (Smash) — sang the title song live via satellite from New York’s Richard Rodgers Theatre, where the buzzy show chronicling the founding father’s life is currently in residence. (The Late Show‘s Stephen Colbert introduced the number.)
