This year had the lowest rating in the history of the Tony Awards :( It just makes me so sad that people put all this effort into the ceremony and don't get back what they deserve

James, Thank you for that awesome performance and especially for including a dancer that uses a wheelchair. My son was in a wheelchair since being born with a birth defect. We were told at his birth to treat him as if he had no physical disability. When people with disabilities are included in things this makes it so much easier. Because of people like you this was possible. Thank you

9:38 I stopped. I felt emotional and shed a tear. Your achievements are remarkable. You have worked hard and stayed humble. You are a gem of a human and I am so very happy for you. Great work man.

YALL.....One girl told me i had *"low standards"* in the comments for sayin that james was a goood singer....and i said that "i was just complementing him for being a great singer for a late show host and i didnt mean to bother your little *"high"* standards..can u even sing?".......And im just over here thinking like, *BIHH* u can't hate because u prob cant sing ur ABC'S in the right tune...go sit down somewhere.

I just got home from the Fifth Ave Theater in Seattle— I forgot how great a live performance can be. After the show, you can stay for a question and answer session with the performers.

Well deserving of the ovation. He is such a talent! If I'm being honest though, it lacked the complete cheekiness of Neil Patrick Harris. Sorry James Corden x

I got emotional in the end when James finally got therespect admiration and gratitude from the audience.
He is Broadway's greatest ambassador!
People need to see his talent and encouragement of theater inspiring so many. If hed loseweight he'd be on every magazine cover and tv show but, image is everything in this business and he is overlooked and under-rated.
His smile lights up a room.

Lately I’ve been very busy blogging about every subject
under the sun, I know to one who is not one, blogging can seem like taking only
a few minutes to post, in reality that is all it takes, not the weeks of prep,
research and thought that govern the most successful postings. So, its little
wonder I fell a little behind my DVR viewing from which I glean most of my posted
subjects. Finally, I got caught up to the CBS News Sunday Morning program to the
day of the Tony awards, that featured most subjects that was flavored with most
aspects of “show business”, like, acting, singing, wigging. make-up, dancing,
music and lyrics, directing, lighting, costuming, staging, writing, book
adaptation, and most importantly, “journalism”…

Tony Awards... WHO CARES!!! As a guy who takes in at least five shows a year... WHO CARES ABOUT ACTORS VOTING AWARDS FOR THEMSELVES!?! Worse that the Oscars because it’s a much smaller audience.
How is this different from tech gurus voting themselves awards at the end of every year?
Or food services? Or Uber? Or Porn “stars”?

He would sing a lot better if he would to lose weight. Plus, he's English with that accent...couldn't understand anything. When you have seen one opening, you've seen them all.

Now THAT’S how you open a show!!!!!!!!!!
And he was so cute at the end tearing up and feeling overwhelmed with joy and pride and from receiving the love and ovation from the Broadway industry!
family tea and lots of yarn.
And that's why they pay him the big bucks!!!!! America may have him on loan but he will always be our natural treasure x

He will never compare to Neil Patrick Harris!! James Corden insults Broadway and promotes his own show during the opening number. Disgraceful compared to NPH's legendary performances

Who here caught that the "Bloated as Hell" line was a reference to the 1976 anti-tv satire "Network" ?
In it Tv is described as "indifferent to suffering, insensitive to joy...reducing all of life to the rubble of banality."
It was developed into a play, and ran in 2017 with Cranston in the lead role.

TV: "You pay us so much more money than the theatre." Yes, but guessing the people
on TV would give up their career to play Broadway.
