SOME DAY WHEN YOU GET WHERE YOU’RE GOING, YOU’LL KNOW IT WAS YOU AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU THAT PUT YOU THERE. AND THAT WILL BE THE GREATEST FEELING IN THE WORLD. ANY HIDDEN MESSAGES THERE? SWIFT IS THE FIRST WOMAN TO WIN THE AWARD TWICE. ONE OF MY FAVORITES IS THE TRIBUTE TO LIONEL RICHIE. THAT WAS AMAZING. THEY INCLUDED PENNY — IN THAT TRIBUTE. BRICK HOUSE TO CLOSE IT OUT. HOW ABOUT MEGHAN TRAINOR. SHE GOT UP THERE AND REALLY FELT IT. KIND OF AN OVERLOOKED MOMENT. AND IT SEEMED VERY AUTHENTIC AND REAL. THAT’S WHAT I MEAN. SO REAL, SO COOL.

I HAVE NOT AND APPARENTLY I’M GOING TO BE WAITING A WHILE. SOME PEOPLE HAVE SEEN IT A HALF DOZEN TIMES. SO MUCH IS HAPPENING SO QUICKLY AS YOU SAW A SAMPLE. WHAT A THRILL AND IT ADDED TO THE WAITING LIST. AND MUCH MORE GRAMMY COVERAGE TONIGHT ON E.T. AND THE SHOW AIRS AT 7:30. CBS 2 IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE INSIDER. AND THERE WAS A LOT OF TALK ABOUT ADELE. AND I SAW A TWEET THAT SAID THAT THE PIANO MIKES FELL IN THE PIANO. IT DIDN’T SOUND RIGHT.

  1. Notice how during the "just you wait" part, Hamilton doesn't make eye contact with anyone UNTIL 2:22 (and what a stare)

    Lin has said there are a few subtext moments in the play, so…

  2. Hams WIFE: gives him a coat
    Ham: basically completely ignores
    Angelica, his sister in law: gives him books
    Ham: at least nods
    Laurens (his boyfriend): gives him a bag
    Ham: INTENSE GAY STARE
