The top 5 moments of the Tonys telecast

NEW YORK – The top five moments on Sunday night's Tony Awards telecast you'll be talking about Monday morning:

1. Neil Patrick Harris opening the show with an insane amount of dancers, glitter and silliness. He joked about kiddie stars, ended up hanging high from a prop and made even Mike Tyson dance.

2. When Harris joined "Smash" star Megan Hilty, "Go On" star Laura Benanti (swigging a bottle) and former "The Book of Mormon" star Andrew Rannells to skewer theater stars who seek fame – and fortune – on TV. Harris' guests all recently tried their hands at TV, but only his "How I Met Your Mother" is still on the air.

3. That amazing kid tap-dancing in the "A Christmas Story, the Musical" segment. He's 10-year-old Luke Spring and in his gangster's pinstripe suit and lightning-fast feet, he mowed people down.

4. Cyndi Lauper performing her song "True Colors" during the segment when dead members of the theater community are honored. It was moving, natural and fitting that Lauper, a first-time Broadway composer, make the nod to her predecessors.

5. The final song, when Harris teamed up with five-time Tony winner Audra McDonald to rework Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind" – "In New York, singing all the lyrics we made up/There's nothing we can't do." Harris rules again.
