Grammys 2016: Lin-Manuel Miranda Raps His Hamilton Acceptance Speech

Rapping helped Broadway’s Hamilton nab a 2016 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album, so of course creator/star Lin-Manuel Miranda performed his acceptance speech in similar fashion.

Surrounded by the cast of the critically acclaimed show, Miranda accepted the statuette from The Late Show‘s Stephen Colbert (who’d introduced the company as it performed moments earlier on the telecast) and then quickly launched into his rhythmic, pre-written thank-yous.

“The cast, unstoppable, the band is unbeatable, inimitable, unbeatable, always inspiring me to pull through,” Miranda rapped, closing with a note to his toddler son: “Sebastian, Daddy’s bringing home a Grammy for you!”
