'Hamilton' fever fires up musicals win, Stephen Paulus and Boston Symphony get classical Grammys

"Hamilton" fever took hold at the Grammy Awards on Monday when cast members of the hip-hop Broadway phenomenon performed live on the CBS broadcast and took home the award for musical theater album.

The performance marked a rare instance in which a Broadway musical was allowed to occupy precious airtime at the Grammys. In past years, Grammy producers have relegated the musical category to the pre-telecast ceremony held just before the main event.

Taking the stage from the musical's home at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York, Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote "Hamilton," joined the ensemble cast to perform the show's opening sequence.

Miranda later accepted the Grammy, delivering a rap-like list of thank-yous.
