“Glee’s” Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison steal the Tony Awards

HollywoodNews.com: The 64th Annual Tony Awards took place in New York City and paid tribute to some of the best Broadway shows of the year.

Among the top winners were Eddie Redmayne’s “Red,” “Memphis,” and Viola Davis’ “Fences.” Host Sean Hayes (“Promises, Promises”) cracked jokes throughout the night and even came out dressed as Spider-Man to pay tribute to the “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark,” which is looking at a November opening.

“Glee’s” Lea Michele and co-star Matthew Morrison returned to their Broadway roots with Morrison singing “All I Need is the Girl” from “Gypsy.” Michele then did a solo performance of “Don’t Rain on My Parade” from “Funny Girl.” Both performances were the highlight of the evening among the awards.

    No, they were not the highlights of the evening. Matthew Morrison, yes, but Lea was pushing it too hard. She had done a so much better job with the same song on Glee because she was not trying to sound exactly like Barbra Streisand like at the Tony’s. The dancers in the Memphis song were magnificent and I loved the whole show, Sean Heyes did a really good job.
