Best of Musical Numbers from Tony Awards: Intentional and Unintentional Hilarity

The opening and closing numbers from last night's Tony Awards offered the best moments of hilarity.

As part of an opening montage of musicals, Rock of Love reality star Bret Michaels hit the stage with his band Poison and the cast of Broadway's Rock of Ages. After his final note of "Nothin' But a Good Time," Michaels ran into a piece of descending scenery when he missed his mark. He was hit in the face and knocked to the ground -- suffering a fractured nose and busted lip (which required three stitches). See the unintentional smackdown here.

Meanwhile, host Neil Patrick Harris ended the show with more intentional hilarity. Click here for his closing number.

Note: Here are the results of the EntertainmentBlogger poll about this year's host -- it appears that Neil Patrick Harris is well-liked.
