Well, Rent on Fox wasn't exactly live, but the show still went on, mostly using prerecorded footage from its dress rehearsal, which is when star Brennin Hunt broke his foot preventing him from participating in a live performance. During the first commercial break the entire cast, including Vanessa Hudgens, Brandon Victor Dixon, Jordan Fisher, Tinashe and James "Valentine" Leyva of RuPaul's Drag Race fame explained what happened, but promised a live finale for Act II featuring the entire original Broadway cast. Despite the snags, fans seemed enthralled. Here's a look at some of our favorite clips from what was broadcast, as well as "concert renditions" of songs that only the live studio audience saw... until now.
