Jeremy Jordan and Jonathan Groff sing gender-bending cover of 'Let Me Be Your Star' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
It’s Smash as you’ve never seen it before.
What if Broadway vets Jeremy Jordan (Newsies) and Jonathan Groff (Spring Awakening) had been vying to play Marilyn Monroe on the first season of the Broadway-set NBC drama instead of Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty? Well, alternate-universe shippers can rejoice! On Monday, Jordan and Groff belted out a gender-bent version of the show’s signature ballad, “Let Me Be Your Star,” at a benefit for the Off Broadway’s MCC Theater (whose current production, Really Really, stars Girls‘ Zosia Mamet and Parenthood‘s Matt Lauria).
This year’s “Miscast” fund-raiser featured a bunch of theater-friendly celebs performing tunes originally written for performers of decidedly different ages, genders, or ethnicities. Tony-winner Jane Krakowski tackled the title song from the Latino-centric musical In the Heights, while her former 30 Rock castmate Cheyenne Jackson paired with Jordan to play Side Show‘s conjoined twins Daisy and Violet on “Who Will Love Me As I Am.” But nothing can top Jordan and Groff’s wiggy take on “Let Me Be Your Star.”

Want to pass some eye water? Do you love 30 Rock more than you love eating sharp cheddar cheese in your PJs? Well we’ve got the video for you.
In honor of the series finale of 30 Rock, the cast and crew put together this tribute to Tina Fey where they praise her as a writer, boss, and friend.
Jane Krakowski (who better get her Emmy this year) gives an incredibly heartfelt account of meeting Fey and working with her over the years.
“She has gone through a phase in her career where her light shone so brightly,” Krakowski says, wiping away tears. “And she shared her light with all of us, which is really sweet of her.”
