Sara Bareilles, Josh Groban To Host The 2018 Tony Awards

Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban just landed a major gig!

On Wednesday, April 18, 2018, the singer-songwriters announced in a video message on Facebook that they would be teaming up to co-host the 2018 Tony Awards.

"We're going to hopefully give you an evening of celebration of this great season of theatre," Groban said in the clip, jokingly adding, "You'll see that I'm a double threat and not a triple threat." He continued, "Many clothing changes. How many for you?"

"Uh, 121," Bareilles, who starred in Jesus Christ Superstar Live earlier this month, quipped. To which Groban replied, "Hmm, two for me."

In a statement to Playbill, Bareilles, who recently appeared on Broadway in Waitress after receiving Tony and Grammy nominations for penning the score, said, "The theatre has completely transformed my life in every way possible. I have never felt more embraced and encouraged by a professional community, and I am so grateful for that." 

The "She Used To Be Mine" singer-songwriter continued, "It is my great honor to join my friend Josh Groban in hosting the Tonys this year, and use the opportunity to simply say a heartfelt 'thank you' to this wonderful community ... in high heels, with jokes."

"To be at the helm of a night celebrating the best of that theatre with a person I just laugh way too much with is beyond words," Groban, who received a Tony nomination last year for his performance in Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, added. "But I will have words on Tony night! The best words! I look forward to flailing about in front of my peers. It will be with all the love and respect in the world for the room we're lucky enough to be in." 

This year's popular shows include The Band's VisitOnce on this IslandMean Girls, SpongeBob SquarePantsAngels in America, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. To find out if your fave has been nominated, be sure to tune in to the livestream on the Tony Awards' website on Tuesday, May 1 to watch Katharine McPhee, who is currently starring in Waitress, and Tony-winning Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. announce this year's nominees.
