Tickets to “Hamilton” are going to be even harder to get after the 2016 Grammy Awards. The hip-hop musical about Alexander Hamilton is currently playing on Broadway, a few thousand miles from the Grammy ceremony in the Los Angeles Staples Center. However, the CBS awards show broadcast the show’s opening number live via satellite from the Richard Rodgers Theater in New York Monday night.

“The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert introduced the musical’s cast. “Prepare to witness something truly special,” he said. “This is an American story. This is a New York story. This is like nothing you’ve ever seen.”

Screams were so loud when star/writer Lin-Manuel Miranda appeared that his first lines were barely audible. The excitement is understandable. For many fans, the Grammy Awards performance is the most “Hamilton” they’ll get to see for months. The show is sold out for almost all of the next year.

As previously reported, this was the first time a Broadway show was broadcast on the Grammy Awards. Miranda noted his excitement on Twitter. He wasn't just happy about bringing musical theater to a wider audience, but exposing his fans to new music as well.

The performance was not a part of the regular show. Miranda was on Twitter right after he stepped off stage and revealed that the rest of the ceremony was being viewed in the Richard Rodgers Theater.

Shortly after, the Grammys cut back to the New York stage when after “Hamilton” won the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. He rapped his acceptance speech. He did the same when he won Tony Awards for his show “In The Heights” in 2008.
