  1. Can we just talk about the fact that James held that note from 5:15 – to 5:30 a good 15 seconds and he was on tune aswell?

  2. He was going to say general insurance company but the actual acronym is government employees insurance company

  3. Neil Patrick Harris is My favorite Broadway Star And A Kid Actor too. And Also Married to David Burtka .They're Good – Looking Dad's with their Kids . Gideon & Harper. I Wish I could Be His wife. And I want to Meet you Guys So Badly

  4. By Broadway I thought it would be Heathers, or Dear Evan Hansen😂 I don’t know any of the these. At least they have Hamilton

  5. Honestly, I was expecting Heathers:

    James: WoOOOoOAh, honey whatcha' waitin' for-
    Neil: ShUT uP JaMEs!!! step into my canDY STORE!!!!!

  6. Alright so in How I meet your Mother Niel Patrick Harris is incredible. Now that I know he has great taste in music, he's just all that much more..more.. dare I say it? Attractive.

  7. Y’all made my Friday fabulously fun and flooded with positive vibes and musical madness. No contest to the talent here I call it a tie for different reasons. Both of you are precious. Thank you very much for bringing funshine to cloudy days you rainbow royals. 🤗

  8. Guys and dolls 😍
    Gypsy
    Company 💜💜💜
    Les miserable
    Chicago (I see you fosse hands!)
    Hedwig and the angry inch
    Hamilton ( weirdly slow?)

  9. At 6:30 you can tell that they put two takes together because his jacket goes from unbuttoned to buttoned. Then it reverses at 7:00. With that being said, I love that they did a broadway riff off

  10. "We are all acting really hard here". I mean, he is right, just look at the guys behind just nodding and reacting like patronizing children XD

  11. Why is this going to my friend evan and some random ass dude as I beatbox the gayest Brodway tunes in the background (yes I'm hella gay btw)

  12. i've really been hoping, neil would sing "not while i'm around" from sweeney todd, as james said "not while you're around" ^^
