It's been a pretty good night for Lin-Manuel Miranda and the cast and crew of Hamilton: Not only did they perform the show's opening number, "Alexander Hamilton," live from the Richard Rodgers Theatre for the telecast, they also took home a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. Miranda, ever the showman, rapped the acceptance speech, which you can see above.
