      it is a nice show, but compared to the "Neil Patrick Harris - 2013 - Tony Awards Openin" it is like The Kingdom of Far Far Away .. not getting even close to that show :(

                                James Corden is pure talent. Funny, witty, you can see his passion and dedication he put in, in every show especially in this performance. He earned everyone's respect in the audience.

                                          When did it become so difficult to just enjoy a thing?

                                          Or at least silently ALLOW other people to enjoy a thing. Who knew?
