The 67th Annual Tony Awards were held last night, hosted once again by Neil Patrick Harris. The big news of the night seemed to be Kinky Boots, the Broadway musical that ended the night with six Tony Awards.

Kinky Boots won awards for Best Sound Design, Best Orchestrations, Best Choreography, and Best Musical. Billy Porter also won Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his role in Kinky Boots as drag queen Lola. Pop star Cyndi Lauper (pictured) won the Tony Award for Best Original Score Written for the Theatre, and entranced the audience with a heartfelt acceptance speech:

Kinky Boots is based on the 2005 movie of the same name. It follows the personal awakening of Charlie Prince, the inheritor of an English shoe factory that saves his struggling family business by manufacturing boots for drag queens.

After the show, Lauper briefly took to Twitter to brag about her win:
