The Tonys Are Coming!

And they're going to be magical.

We have had an incredible year for theater on Broadway and off, and this year's Tony Awards is destined to highlight an amazing cross section of innovative, integrated and straight out fabulous performances.

For those who are die-hard fans or may not have access to Broadway or a TV to watch the awards, it's worth checking out some of the pre-show action, particularly the above nugget from James Corden.

Corden's classic carpool karaoke scheme gets a huge adrenaline shot with a Broadway show-tune theme and the addition of Lin Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), Audra McDonald (Shuffle Along), Jane Krakowski (She Loves Me) and Jesse Tyler Fergusen (Fully Committed). They are powerhouses and hilarious to watch cranking out Broadway classics (although Corden's no slouch himself).

Check out the video above and make sure you watch the Tony Awards this Sunday, June 12 at 7 p.m. central on CBS; Corden is hosting and it looks sure to be great!
