Neil Patrick Harris kicked off the 2013 Tony Awards with is usual musical extravaganza, an opening number that showed off the 39-year-old actor's singing talents, magic skills and comedic chops.

The four-time host enlisted the help of former boxer Mike Tyson, who had his own one-man show on Broadway, and promised a "bigger" show than last year.

Harris also cracked jokes about Hollywood's film adaptation of the Broadway classic, "Les Miserables."

“Can I have my ‘Tom Hooper Les Miz closeup’ please?” Harris joked. “On Broadway we don’t need extreme closeups to prove we’re singing live.”
