neil_patrick_harris_rocks_tony_awards_as_hedwigNeil Patrick Harris not only took home a Tony Award on Sunday night but he also stole the show with a stunning drag performance.

The openly gay How I Met Your Mother star was nominated in the category of Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical (which he won) for his take on the role of Hedwig, the East German transgender rocker.

Harris was also introduced by Ru Paul to preform the song Sugar Daddy on stage with the cast of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

The number saw the 40-year-old actor and singer take to the audience to give Orlando Bloom and Sting a lap dance, lick Samuel L. Jackson’s glasses and passionately kiss his real-life husband David Burtka.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch also won in the categories of Best Revival of a Musical and Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical (Lena Hall).
