http://www.vulture.com/2016/02/watching-hamilton-perform-and-win-a-grammy.html has the best videos I've found, both of the live broadcast from the Richard Rodgers, and of Lin-Manuel's rapped thank you speech.  Good: you can maximise the videos; Bad: they autoplay into something else.

The article also has lots of cool stuff about how they set up for the live broadcast, to really showcase the choreography.  And yes, it makes me want to see it live even more.


Also, Bill Gates was on Desert Island Discs a few weeks ago (this is a long-running BBC interview programme in which guests are invited to choose the 8 records they would take with them to a desert island) and his final pick was My Shot.  In case that link doesn't work outside the UK, here's what he said, as best I could transcribe:

"I love plays, especially musicals, and one of the absolute best that I've ever seen is this Hamilton which is now on Broadway, and this is one of many great songs from it, but it's about a young person saying 'hey I'm going to take a risk, I'm going to get out there and try and do something new and different' so this song in particular appealed to me, and it's called My Shot"
