  3. I've replayed him jumping through the "Pippin" hoop over and over. I still can't believe it.

  5. This seemed a very mediocre "showstopper". I did like the Macklemore-like rapping, but nothing stood out. I've pretty much forgotten it already.

  6. Amazing.

  7. Just a note - after the number and the costume change NPH was sporting quite the peen outline. We were watching on a plasma 54" and everyone in the room couldn't miss it. Thank you NPH! :-)

  8. NPH is an incredible host. He didn't miss anything.

  9. To Mike Ryan: LOL I too noticed the 'outline', and I was watching it on an iPad (!)...;)

  10. That, friends, is what they call star quality.

  11. Give that man an Emmy for hosting the Tony's.
    AND.....let him host then next Oscar show!

    ALL the musical numbers were excellent too bad ticket prices to these shows are outrageous.

  12. The number with Neil, Andrew Rannells, Megan, and Laura I think was a better one -- light & funny, not as bland as the opening showstopper:

  13. We get it Will, you weren't impressed. Thanks for your two cents. Don't you have milk to sour or baby kittens to depress or something?

    I actually wish I WAS NPH!

  15. Niel Patrick Harris makes me proud to be in the same community as him. One of the most talented men in Hollywood.

  16. God I love NPH. Everything about him. This was incredible!

  17. This guy represents why I stopped watching reality t.v. No joke. I watched NPH in an interview discussing all the work he does and I realized I need to support the arts. And true artists like him. I stopped watching my useless reality t.v trash and started watching more sitcoms, attending plays, reviewing worthy films.

    Thanks for all you do for the arts, NPH.

  18. He's a family man. A brilliant performer. Funny. Smart. Can act, sing, dance, perform, and make anyone smile. And he's got a rescue dog, two adorable kids, and a beautiful man by his side. NPH is everything Harvey Milk fought for.

  19. That might be one of the most awesome things I've ever seen. Very very cool!

  20. I have now watched the opening number four times...and it is still totally A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. NPH jumped through hoops, balanced on the cheerleaders shoulders, got from the stage to the back in 10 seconds (I counted), remembered every lyric for his patter, sang, danced, played guitar.....and barely broke a sweat.

    How can anyone be that talented?

  21. That was one hell of a performance !
    It was simply extraordinary......and to be in that audience and see it live must have been exhilarating.

  22. Wonderful!

  23. There isn't a more entertaining awards show around - the others could learn a few lessons. And whoever decided to give NPH a chance to host for the first time deserves some special award. He owns this!

  24. great...amazing...wonderful.!!!

  25. One of the finest, funniest, foremost entertainers of our time! Is there anything he can't do? Did I mention REALLY likeable? Oh, yeah - I hear he might be 'a gay', too. (SNARK!)
