On 9 June, the 2018 Tony Awards took place and in an undeniably epic turn of events, THE BAND'S VISIT blew all competition away winning 10 Tony Awards! Yep - TEN!!! To celebrate such a significant victory for the only show in its category of Best Musical (which of course, it won) not to have been based on a popular movie or TV show, we decided our song of the week would be "Answer Me", sung live on TODAY...

The performance itself starts around the two-minute mark, but watch the beginning to see the moment the cast (and leading actors) are first told they're nominated for the awards they would go on to win!

Want to get all the gossip from the big event? Check out our round-up of the evening with the best tweets. (we've got De Niro being bleeped for swearing about Trump, stagey dog photos and...Andrew Lloyd Webber doing a DJ set???)
