The premiere ceremony, which was held prior to the telecast, saw the majority of the awards presented.
During the show’s in memoriam segment, Taylor Hawkins, drummer for Foo Fighters, was remembered. It also featured songs written by Stephen Sondheim, performed by Cynthia Erivo and Leslie Odom Jr., Ben Platt, and Rachel Zegler.
