Compare the reaction to that opening with last year's opening. Not even a contest. Neil Patrick Harris is just awesome.
Ahhh... it was written by the guys who did Neil Patrick Harris' final song on the Tonys earlier this year. Also, the guys who did Hairspray. Mark Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
Neil Patrick Harris is now going off on the lack of theme songs. Which... true.
Also, got in a Kanye dig. But, a good one.
So apparently, they're splitting up the show by genre instead of a mix-mash by category...
First genre... Comedy!
