NEW YORK: The competition at the Tony Awards is fierce every year, but this time promises to be positively brutal: A fight will actually break out onstage.It's part of an attempt to highlight as many Broadway musicals as possible and promises to be a boon to the backers of the show "Rocky," which failed to secure a best musical nomination despite its stunning sets and choreography.Karl will be the focus of the show's brief moment in front of millions.Producers of the telecast will hope to build on last year's 7.24 million viewers -- the show's largest audience in four years -- with Hugh Jackman as host. Fans of former emcee Neil Patrick Harris, take heart: He'll be performing from his hit show "Hedwig and the Angry Inch". Stars slated to help present awards include Bradley Cooper, Kevin Bacon, Clint Eastwood, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Will Ferrell and Liev Schreiber. Some Hollywood royalty who showed up onstage this season like Denzel Washington, Daniel Radcliffe, James Franco and Rachel Weisz didn't win nominations and may skip the show."Rocky" will get its shot in the first hour of the telecast and be introduced by Samuel L. Jackson.
