Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman returned to host the 2014 Tony Awards. Jackman, who has performed athletic choreography in his previous stints at host, showed off some previously unknown skills at Radio City Music Hall June 8.



Here are some of Jackman's best moments from the Tony Awards.

1) Jackman, who has spoken and sung of his love for his native Australia in numerous performances, apparently became a kangaroo in his opening number when he jumped through Radio City Music Hall.

2) Hugh Jackman and Neil Patrick Harris followed in the steps of Solange and Jay-Z in an elevator confrontation.

3) Jackman was happy to be performing the opening number, but Clint Eastwood clearly did not want to be part of the fun.

4)  The stage and screen star made women's dreams come true when he serenaded the nominees for Best Actress in a Play and Musical.

5) No one knew you could rap The Music Man, but he pulled it off.

6) Jessie Mueller dancing with Hugh Jackman will be the best GIF from the Tony Awards.

7) [insert Wolverine plug here]

8) He was looking ABSolutely dapper in his tux.

9) His Patti LuPone high note in the finale. 'Nuff said.

10) A new suggested rewrite of the Irving Berlin song - "Anything you can do, Hugh Jackman can do better!"
