February 3rd, 2016

images (20)We are obsessed with the Hamilton musical.

Here’s proof. 

Which is why we’re beyond excited to watch the Hamilton cast perform at the Grammy Awards Feb. 15 from their hub at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City.

The show’s opening number will be performed by the cast of Hamilton, the hit musical based on the life of Alexander Hamilton.

It’s only the eighth time a major musical theater show has performed as part of the Grammys.

And that just proves what a big deal Hamilton has become since it opened on Broadway in August.
