We’re So Into the Original Cast of Hamilton and The Roots’ Performance of “Helpless”

Share this post

The premiere of Hamilton on Disney+ is just around the corner on July 3, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Ahead of the release, the original cast of Hamilton joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots for a stripped-down performance of “Helpless” during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday. For those not familiar with the show, “Helpless” is essentially the meeting between Eliza Schuyler and Alexander Hamilton .While the entire cast couldn’t be included, Miranda and Soo were joined by Rene Elise Goldsberry , Jasmine Cephas Jones , Leslie Odom Jr. , Daveed Diggs , Anthony Ramos , and many other core ensemble members . The biggest highlight from the performance, outside of Soo’s absolutely stunning vocals, was Diggs grooving to the beat before using his drink as an instrument. Catch the full performance above and get ready to say “I do I do I do I do!” when Disney+ asks if you want to watch Hamilton on July 3.POPSUGAR
