The 2014 Tony Awards are this Sunday, and if you're not feeling amped up about it yet, this video of last year's opening number should get you in the mood. During this eight-minute tour de force, Neil Patrick Harris (last year's host and one of this year's nominees) performs a mind-blowing magic trick, spits a 30-second Lin-Manuel Miranda rap, and foreshadows his 2014 Broadway appearance ("On Broadway…we sing live eight shows a week. Check it."). We're sure Hugh Jackman — this year's seasoned host — has a few tricks up his own sleeve, but he definitely has his work cut out for him.
