In the video below, Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator and star of the Broadway hit, speaks on his musical influences, inspiration, Grammy Award nomination and how he hopes the show will expose hip-hop and musical theater to new audiences.

The "Hamilton" performance will be the eighth time in history that musical theater has been featured on the GRAMMY Awards. Previous Broadway productions featured on the telecast include "Godspell" (1972); "The Magic Show" (1975); "Sophisticated Ladies" (1982); "La Cage Aux Folles" (1984); "Will Rogers Follies" (1992); "Riverdance" and "Bring In Da Noise, Bring In Da Funk" (1997); and, most recently, "American Idiot" (2010).

The "Hamilton" segment also marks the fourth time that a performance will be broadcast live via satellite on the GRAMMY Awards. The last time the awards telecast included a performance from another location
was when Amy Winehouse performed "You Know I'm No Good" and "Rehab" in London during the 50th Annual GRAMMY AWARDS in 2008, the same year Winehouse earned her five GRAMMYs®.
