Watch the Cast of Hamilton Sing "Helpless" on Tonight Show

The Sky's the Limit With This Performance by the Original Cast of Hamilton and The Roots

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 (and eventual proposal) between Eliza Schuyler (Phillipa Soo) and Alexander Hamilton (Lin-Manuel Miranda).

While the entire cast couldn't be included, Miranda and Soo were joined by Renée Elise Goldsberry (Angelica Schuyler), Jasmine Cephas Jones (Peggie Schuyler/Maria Reynolds), Leslie Odom Jr. (Aaron Burr), Daveed Diggs (Thomas Jefferson/Marquis de Lafayette), Anthony Ramos (John Laurens/Philip Hamilton), and many other core ensemble members (including The Umbrella Academy star Emmy Raver-Lampman). 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.
