Bruce Springsteen Set To Rock Tony Awards Sunday

Can Ethan Slater squeeze out a Tony Award from the 'SpongeBob' musical

The Boss' sold-out Broadway run was ineligible, by choice, in the regular Tony Award categories.

Our 2018 Tony hosts Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles visited Stephen Colbert for a last-minute plug for this Sunday's CBS broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall.

Groban (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812) and Bareilles (Waitress) traded off lines as they sang, "Have you ever watched a movie and wished it was on stage, or tuned into a TV show and wished it was on stage?" "Today we were rehearsing and there were 30 people just hanging around the stage because Bruce was going to rehearse".

The Tony Awards honor the best in show business, and this year's ceremony is sure to be no exception.

Lots of kid-friendly shows snagged nods this year.

Follow CBS News' live blog on Sunday to see who's winning.


Where are the Tony Awards this year?

.

Since the announcement last month that Springsteen would accept an award, it was expected that he would be tapped to perform, drawing a rock-loving audience to a program that has suffered tumbling ratings in recent years.

Bruce Springsteen, for one. The official Tony Awards Twitter account announced casts from several Broadway shows will perform.

As always, the show will be filled with performances, with this year's coming from each of the nominated best musicals and best musical revivals as well as Summer: The Donna Summer Musical.

CBS All Access is available on your mobile device, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Fire TV, PS4, Xbox or Windows 10. The seven-day free trial is available for new customers only.
