Now that the nominations have been announced, let the speculation begin as to what numbers the nominated shows will perform.

I think Jersey Boys will do those same three songs they always do...Walk like a man, Can't take my eyes off of you, and I'm blanking on the other.

Do the revivals perform? I forget. If so, sweeney will do A Little Priest
when ducks grow thumbs then maybe my opinion will change.

PJ GAME will probably do "Hernando's Hideaway."

THE DROWSY CHAPERONE I'm guessing will do a medley of sorts. Probably consisting of "Show Off" and "Toledo Surprise."

JERSEY BOYS will probably do their usual medley.

SWEENEY should do "A Little Priest" and the "Finale."

I can just picture the Sweeney performance receiving an uproar of an ovation.

This is going to be awesome.

I doubt they'd do the Finale for sweeney because they wouldn't want to spoil it for those who have been living under a rock for the last 30 years.

They only get three to four minutes, so forget about "A Little Priest" which is twice that long (and personally I have no interest in seeing a butchered version of it).

Wedding Singer will more than likely do "It's Your Wedding Day"

And dear God, I hope PJ Game does "Hernando's Hideaway" since Megan got a nomination, but maybe they'll do a medley since Kelli got one, too?

I believe I heard a rumour that THE WEDDING SINGER won't be performing because they decided to pay for a tv commercial instead of a performance on the awards show. However, I COULD be wrong.

Sweeney will do "A Little Priest" because of the nominations of Patti and Michael. I highly doubt they will do anything with Mano unfortunantly. I wouldn't be suprised if The Wedding Singer did "Its Your Wedding Day".

I agree with Foa about:
PJ GAME will probably do "Hernando's Hideaway."

THE DROWSY CHAPERONE I'm guessing will do a medley of sorts. Probably consisting of "Show Off" and "Toledo Surprise."

JERSEY BOYS will probably do their usual medley. I think their medly is "Who loves you, stay and lets hang on.."

Gypsy...JERSEY BOYS' usual medley is "Walk Like A Man," "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You," and "Who Loves You."

SWEENEY could do "Worst Pies in London" and segway into the end of "A Little Priest."

I suppose they could do "God that's Good" But their best pick would be Little Priest because it feature Patti and Michael, is probably the most famous song from the show, is a good way to intice people to see the show.

The more I think about it, the more I think SWEENEY will opt for an ensemble number like the opening or the finale because it showcases the actors and their instruments.

I was referring to the cast recording medley as I haven't really seen their performances anywhere. The CR medley is Medley: Stay / Let's Hang On / Opus 17 (Don't You Worry 'Bout Me / Bye, Bye, Baby).

any number with feature the actors and their instruments. There is no way they perform without the actor/muscians, thats the whole gimmick of the show.

They could and technically would have to do A Little Priest with the ensemble anyways right? It still could showcase the instrumental aspect while focusing on Patti and Michael.
