Neil Patrick Harris at the Tony Awards

Neil Patrick Harris hosted the 65th annual Tony Awards on Sunday while dancing, singing and fighting with Hugh Jackman throughout the evening.

According to the Associated Press, the CBS Tony Awards drew 6.9 million viewers this year, which is about the same as last year. Harris opened the show, joined by Stephen Colbert, Brooke Shields and Bobby Cannavale, with a musical number titled, “It’s Not Just For Gays Anymore,” which inevitably involved a lot of censoring.

Later in the night, Harris preformed a humorous musical duel with Hugh Jackman, who has hosted previous ceremonies, over how to be the best host, which turned into an “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better” dance number. Harris also scattered the night with 30 seconds of “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark” jokes, such as “I sent Bono a congratulatory cable, but it snapped,” and joked about Daniel Radcliffe, Angela Lansbury and Al Pacino.

Harris also preformed with the cast of “Company” and brilliantly closed the show with a rap:

The big winner of the night, an early favorite for the Tonys, was “Book of Mormon.” Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, also the creators of South Park, took home a total of nine statues for the show, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical.

“War Horse” also took home five awards in total, including, Best Play and Best Director. Individual winners of the night included Sutton Foster for “Anything Goes,” Norbert Leo Butz for “Catch Me If You Can,” Ellen Barkin for “The Normal Heart,” Mark Rylance for “Jerusalem,” and Frances McDormand for “Good People.”
