The Cast Of Hamilton Will Perform At The Grammys

Music News The Grammys

Hamilton isn’t content with confinement to Broadway—it’s taking over the stage at the Grammys, too. The awards show announced today that the cast of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s already-legendary musical will perform a tune from the show via live satellite feed from the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York. This is only the fourth time that the Grammys will feature a satellite performance, and the eighth time that the program will feature a musical theater performance (the last was American Idiot in 2010).

“The Hamilton cast and crew are absolutely thrilled to be a part of this year’s Grammy Awards,” said Miranda in a statement. “The music community’s response to our cast album has been overwhelming, and we’re honored to be a part of such a special night. To perform from our home at the Richard Rodgers Theatre is a dream come true.”

To say that Hamilton owned 2015 would be an understatement. Miranda’s project has come light years from the first teaser he provided at a White House poetry event in 2009—it’s achieved universal acclaim, it’s sold out for the foreseeable…ever after, and its soundtrack is a near-lock to win the Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. If the Grammys weren’t featuring a performance from Hamilton, the awards show would be missing out on a crucial part of the American musical landscape.
