Neil Patrick Harris, Hugh Jackman Have a 'Host-Off' at Tony Awards (Video)
By AOL TV Editors Posted Jun 13th 2011 09:42AM
'How I Met Your Mother' star Neil Patrick Harris defended his right to host the Tony Awards against former Tony MC Hugh Jackman.
Dueling it out in a very Great White Way, Harris and Jackman referenced the past 60 years of Broadway and Hollywood musicals in a toe-tapping bid to outdo one another onstage at New York's Beacon Theatre.
So who won the oh-so-charming dance-off, and who proved to be a hacky pop culture icon disguised as a bonafide Broadway talent? It's hard to tell. Both Harris and Jackman never seemed to miss a step as they kicked off Tony night or, should we say, 'The Book of Mormon' night?
The critically acclaimed musical from Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of 'South Park,' earned nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical.
