    All of Broadway's biggest names gathered for the 68th annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, and it was one entertaining event—mainly because of host Hugh Jackman!

    The Wolverine star sang, danced and cracked jokes while remaining charismatic, funny and extremely light on his feet! Let's recall some of his best moments from tonight's festivities!

    The star put all his bouncing training to good use as he hopped his way through the theater and backstage, down the aisles and into an elevator before making his way to the main stage for the show's opening. Sting, nominee Neil Patrick Harris and Jersey Boys director Clint Eastwood and the cast members from several Broadway shows all made cameos in the four-minute sequence. Once on stage, the host showed off his impressive singing and dancing abilities.

    During his opening monologue, Jackman poked fun at himself, saying, "Tonight is a celebration of Broadway, the only place you can see Rocky in a boxing ring, Bryan Cranston in the Oval Office, and Wolverine in tap shoes."

    He also joked about Harvey Fierstein's play Casa Valentina. "It highlights the tension between married men who cross dress and the gay community, two sides that never understood each other. It's kind of like people who are against same-sex marriage and people who mind their own business," he said.

    The actor continued to showcase his charm, singing the nominees for Best Lead Actress in a Play to the tune of "L-O-V-E" by Nat King Cole, before presenting the award to Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill's Audra McDonald.

    Later, he revealed an unknown talent—rapping! The Prisoners star took the stage with T.I. and LL Cool J to perform a very memorable rap rendition of "The Music Man!"
