MSNBC's "Morning Joe" headed to the Tonys on Sunday with correspondent Louis Burgdorf taking up residence on Radio City Music Hall's red carpet.

The Tony Awards brought in more than seven million viewers, according to preliminary rating assessments. Neil Patrick Harris hosted the show for his fourth time, kicking of the awards ceremony with an epic performance that included him jumping through a hula hoop and a cameo by Mike Tyson.

"Kinky Boots" won the award for Best Musical. Cyndi Lauper, who wrote the music and lyrics for "Kinky Boots," became the first woman to win the Tony for Best Score on her own. Media stars including MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, Katie Couric, Kelly Ripa, Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell previously paid tribute to Lauper and her first ever Tony nomination.
