Hosted by Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley, the star-studded evening included special performances of “A Song for You” by Tituss Burgess, “Defying Gravity” by Eden Espinosa, “Stronger” by Rachel Crow and “Do Re Mi” from Megan Hilty. Composer-lyricist Marc Shaiman joined Hilty onstage for a performance of “Second Hand White Baby Grand” from Bombshell.

Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski also took to the stage for a Rudetsky signature deconstruction of "Don’t Cry Out Loud." Krakowski sang each lyric as Fey followed with her interpretation of the meaning.
A live auction – hosted by Caroline Rhea – to have a personal performance from Darren Criss on stage at the event caused a bidding war that eventually brought in a total of $30,000 (Criss agreed to sing for each of the winners).
