This past weekend’s live-ish version of Rent on Fox had it’s share of hiccups—the biggest being the injury suffered by the production’s Roger, Brennin Hunt, which caused the majority of the broadcast to be from the dress rehearsal on Saturday night.
While viewers at home were watching the pre-taped musical, the cast still performed a live version of the musical for the audience in L.A., it was just a stripped-down concert version. The official Rent YouTube account posted some of the concert performances, including an emotionally-charged rendition of “I’ll Cover You,” that left the cast, along with Drag Race All Star Valentina, in tears.
Rent had its highs and lows, but you can’t argue that the cast wasn’t giving it their all. Watch Brandon Victor Dixon’s powerful performance in the video below.
