The dance-heaviest Broadway shows may not have taken home many of the prizes at last night's Tony Awards (you can find a full list of winners here), but Broadway's big night out still featured some deliciously dance-y performances. Here are the top highlights, for those of you who forgot to set your DVRs.
Kevin Spacey, the Rockettes, and some very hardworking backup dancers:
"New York, New York" Tribute
We're still not exactly sure why this happened, but hey, more Rockettes!
"Dust and Ashes" and "The Abduction" from Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812
The latter features fabulous gypsy-style revelry:
"Nobody" from Bandstand The most full-out, swing-tastic dancing of the entire night, in case anyone needed proof that Andy Blankenbuehler deserved his win for Best Choreography:

It's usually right around the third or fourth week of "So You Think You Can Dance" audition rounds that we start itching for the live shows. Sure, the auditions are fun, inspiring, and entertaining, but at a certain point, we reach audition saturation. (And the live shows are just so good and feature so much more Cat Deeley.)
All that said, Nigel and co. kept things spicy this week, so our attention remained firmly glued to the screen. (It's been 16 seasons—who are we to doubt Nigel Lythgoe, sir?) Here's how it all went down.
