Opening Musical Number

Neil Patrick Harris — who with all due respect to hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin should host every awards show — belts out the Broadway-style "No One Wants to Do It Alone." Harris's song at the Tony Awards, also written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, was funnier, and even gayer, if possible. Then Baldwin and Martin descend from the flies in a festooned silver circle. As they alight, they hold hands, and Martin says, "There we go, darling." Ladies and gentlemen, La Cage aux Folles.
