Neil Patrick Harris and Hugh Jackman Have a Dance-Off at The Tonys (VIDEO)

hugh jackman, neil patrick harris, tonysIt was a battle for the ages: One impeccably dressed, show-stopping song-and-dance man against another. And they both just happened to be huge stars in the worlds of TV, film and Broadway.

'How I Met Your Mother' star Neil Patrick Harris defended his right to host the Tony Awards (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS) against former Tony MC Hugh Jackman.

Dueling it out in a very Great White Way, Harris and Jackman referenced the past 60 years of Broadway and Hollywood musicals in a toe-tapping bid to outdo one another onstage at New York's Beacon Theatre.

So who won the oh-so-charming dance-off, and who proved to be a hacky pop culture icon disguised as a bonafide Broadway talent? It's hard to tell. Both Harris and Jackman never seemed to miss a step as they kicked off Tony night or, should we say, 'The Book of Mormon' night?

The critically acclaimed musical from Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of 'South Park,' earned nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical.

Hugh won the dance-off hands down. Why was there even a question? The man can move! Check out his Lipton Tea ad on YouTube--it rocks!

Both gentlemen, Neil Patrick Harris and Hugh Jackman are great talents. However, I have always been especially charmed by Neil Patrick Harris. His talent seems so effortless even though I realize how much effort goes into the art of making everything look effortless. That is a true mark of a true professional, just like the Olympic ice skaters;they make their skills look easy, and it is not.

Harris is funny but Hugh combines subtle humor with elegance and charm--and showgirl-length legs that put any other male host to shame.
