Broadway nerds rejoice! The 2013 Tony Awards will be live tonight from Radio City Music Hall in NYC at 8/7c on CBS—and we couldn't be more excited. Remember how awesome last year's Tonys were, due in part to our favorite musical theater funnyman Neil Patrick Harris? Well, good news—NPH is reprising his hosting role this year (for the fourth time!) and will be joined by some of the most awesome Broadway newcomers. Here are the shows you can expect to see:
A Christmas Story
Motown The Musical
Plus, there will be performances from some of our long-time faves, too: Chicago, Jersey Boys, Newsies, Once, Mamma Mia!, Rock of Ages, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, The Lion King and The Phantom of the Opera. Sounds pretty dang awesome, right?
Now, to get you excited for tonight, here's a little NPH awesomeness from last year's show:

On Saturday morning, Russell Horning—aka 15-year-old Instagram king @i_got_barzz—was already kind of famous. His admittedly bad but weirdly mesmerizing dance videos had earned him shoutouts from the likes of Rihanna (and dance tributes from the likes of Josh Killacky).
But by Sunday morning? By Sunday morning, Russell Got Barzz had reached an entirely different level of memedom. Because Katy Perry tapped the teen—signature backpack and all—to perform "Swish Swish" with her on "Saturday Night Live." And the internet lost its darn mind.
If, like me, you've ever wondered (and wondered) how that stunning opening scene in La La Land came together, do we have a treat for you.
Fashion looks better in motion—that's why runways exist. But when does fashion look REALLY amazing? In dancey motion. And exhibit #69372 in the case for the inescapable connection between dance and fashion is this new video from Harper's Bazaar, featuring our favorite dancer/model/rock star, Larsen Thompson.
But when you're the only male ballet student at your studio, fighting dumb stereotypes about ballet being for girls, it's easy to feel alone. That's what makes this video featuring Gabriel Romero, an 11-year-old ballet student at Philadelphia Dance Center, especially meaningful.
