Isaac Cole Powell: Highlight

This year's Tony Awards were full of memorable moments. Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles made the perfect hosts. Both are incredibly talented and had brief moments to shine, but both also seemed to know (unlike some previous hosts...) the night belonged to the nominee's. Other highlights included The Parkland drama students singing 525,600 minutes, Glenda Jackson's win, and Robert De Niro speaking for most of the audience, and much of the country.

As for performances, there were a slew, my favorites being from Bruce Springsteen and nominated musical The Band's Visit, Mean Girls and Once On This Island. Some of you might of noticed the opened shirted hottie shimmying across your screen in the form of actor Isaac Cole Powell who plays Daniel in the Broadway revival.

Alex Newell was incredible belting out Mamma Will Provide, but the 23 year Powell still managed to stand out.  Youtube is yanking Tony performances as fast as they're uploaded, but the cast's performance of the number on Seth Meyers remains (HERE:) if anyone wants to check it out.
