While some looked on with gasps of surprise, others stood to their feet to deliver applause for De Niro's words.

One person tweeted, "De Niro bleeped twice? Whos gonna argue with him?"

But his initial comments, which were expunged by CBS network censors, had nothing to do with The Boss and everything to do with President Donald Trump. Its embrace of foreign cultures working together found a sweet spot with Tony voters.

Expressing his upset after Trump won the election, he told the Hollywood Reporter: "I feel like I did after 9/11".

72nd Annual Tony Awards - Photo Room - New York, U.S., 10/06/2018 - (L-R) Colin Callender, Sonia Friedman, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany pose with their Best play award for "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts One and Two".

This was Salonga's fourth time on the Tony stage.

Springsteen also received a special Tony, presented by Billy Joel, for his successful and critically acclaimed show, Springsteen on Broadway. The Boss thanked the crowd for making him "feel so welcome on their block" and then walked off stage without singing a single song.

Springsteen, meanwhile, was in attendance to perform "My Hometown", taken from the Tony-winning Springsteen on Broadway.

The big winners at this year's Tonys - hosted by Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles - was new Broadway musical "The Band's Visit", scooping 10 prizes, including beating "Spongebob Squarepants", "Mean Girls" and "Frozen" in the Best Musical category. The cast of "Dear Evan Hansen" also will return for a performance of the song "You Will Be Found" for the In Memoriam section. "So this is for the people who lose/Most of us have been in your shoes", they sang in the upbeat opening number.
