1. Bandstand-- Great music, great choreography, great performances. This number definitely knocked our socks off and showed how great the show was to audiences!
2. Miss Saigon-- Eva Noblezada led this riveting number that reminded us all how much this show can reach to us on an emotional level.
3. War Paint-- While out of context it is a mediocre song, it successfully showed of the talent of these two Best Actress nominees!
4. Dear Evan Hansen--While the song itself was excellent, unfortunately Ben Platt was sick for the Tony Awards.
5. Groundhog Day-- The performance of this number was entertaining and practically flawless, however considering this number is the last in the show, it proved to be a bit confusing for those in the audience who hadn’t seen it.
6. Come From Away--The song did its job in inviting the audience to the world in which the show takes place, but wasn’t as convincing as it could be in getting people to be interested in the show as a whole.
7. Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812--The cacophony of music in this performance was overpowering and uneasy on the ears; the principle was great, but the execution was poor.
8. Hello, Dolly!--In spite of not having Bette Midler perform, the choice to have David Hyde Pierce sing a number was a fantastic plan. Unfortunately, this is where the praise for the Hello, Dolly! crew ends. The number was reintroduced specifically in this version of the show after being cut in the original run’s previews, and there is a clear reason why that was in the first place. There were other, better numbers that could have been selected instead.
9. Falsettos-- They had an incredible cast. As for the song itself, it fell flat and wouldn't encourage me to watch the PBS broadcast in October!
