Neil Patrick Harris performing at the 2013 Tony Awards

Neil Patrick Harris saw through his fourth hosting of the Tony Awards last night. Singing and dancing was par for the course throughout the show, with acceptance speech highlights including Cyndi Lauper's win for "Kinky Boots" (which led the night with six trophies including Best Musical), and 79-year-old Cicely Tyson delivering a show-stealing speech for her Best Actress win in "The Trip to Bountiful." Video highlights below.

Harris is smiling, as the June 9 show brought the largest viewership to the Tonys since 2009. 7.24 million people tuned in, which is an impressive 20% bump from last year. Harris tweet-thanked the viewers and the 121 performers from the show. Robert Lloyd did a lovely write-up in the LAT.
