Watch Kevin Spacey Open the Tony Awards With Cameos from Colbert, Whoopi and Billy Crystal

Kevin Spacey showed off his musical chops as host of the 71st Tony Awards.

The Oscar-winning (and Tony-winning) actor paid tribute to nominated musicals like Dear Evan Hansen and Groundhog Day The Musical as he waits anxiously to land the hosting gig and worries about the “mean tweets” he may receive.

He also sought hosting advice from Stephen Colbert, Whoopi Goldberg, and Bill Crystal (In case you didn’t know, this is Spacey’s first hosting gig of any award show.).

Watch the musical opening below, in two parts, courtesy of CBS.
