And delivered us perhaps the best acceptance speech of all time. Actor and "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote the script after reading a biography of the first U.S. secretary of the treasury, delivered a rhythmic thank-you rap onstage Monday night. "We write songs to tell the story, whether you're King Kendrick or Jeanine Tesori," Miranda began. "The cast is unstoppable, band is unbeatable, inimitable, inevitable, always inspiring me to pull through," he continued. The whole thing is worth a listen.

After the performance pumped through speakers at the Staples Center in LA, Miranda tapped out the following enigmatic tweet.  😳 — Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) February 16, 2016 While the Grammys performance might have made some new "Hamilton" fans, those who still hoped to score tickets might now have a harder time than ever. #Hamilton tickets were already hard to get...now with that #GRAMMYs performance, you can't even open the website 😔 — Andrew LaSane (@laptop_lasane) February 16, 2016 Also on HuffPost: Most Outrageous Grammys Looks 2016 Most Outrageous Grammys Looks 2016 1 of 9 Joy Villa Share this slide: Getty Images HuffPost More: 2016 Grammys Hamilton Lin-manuel Miranda Bv-life Suggest a correction Comments Close SUBSCRIBE AND FOLLOW Get top stories and blog posts emailed to me each day.
