My First Performance: Sara Bareilles
NEW YORK (AP) — Music stars like Bruno Mars, Ricky Martin and Sara Bareilles are nominated for Emmys, but for John Legend — who is up for two awards — winning could land him in the elite club of EGOTs.

NEW YORK (AP) — Ratings were slightly higher for this year's Tony Awards over last year, likely thanks to a bump supplied by Bruce Springsteen.

That compares with 6.06 million last year when "Dear Evan Hansen" won the best musical trophy, and 8.74 million in 2016 when the show was buoyed by the megahit "Hamilton."
