It's Broadway's greatest occasion of the year, commending the best venue on the Great White Way. "West Side Story" star and Oscar champ Ariana DeBose is host of the show and addressed CNN recently about what's in store.

"I believe I will do everybody's thought process I will do, which is sing dance and attempt to act and make it an event," she said chuckling. "Furthermore, perhaps I'll amaze a few people as well, who realizes it's live from one coast to another ... also, that is the thing makes it energizing. There's nothing similar to live theater."

A self-depicted devotee of everything theater, DeBose said she went to the past Tony Awards shows to prepare for her job on Sunday.

"I have re-watched endless, incalculable Tony Award shows and I am no James Corden, I am surely no Neil Patrick Harris or Hugh Jackman so far as that is concerned. Also, I am no Whoopi Goldberg, yet I have been motivated by every one of them,"

DeBose said. "I'm amped up for it since it's a jungle gym for me. I have never done this so I get to simply kind of trial and beneficially, I love these individuals and I wouldn't fret falling all over and seeming to be a tad of a blockhead for individuals I love. So here we go!"
