Bruce Springsteen to perform at Tony Awards

NEW YORK -- The Boss will be among the headliners at the Tony Awards telecast on Sunday. Producers of the show said Wednesday that Bruce Springsteen will perform at Radio City Music Hall in addition to receiving a special Tony for his ongoing show "Springsteen on Broadway."

Springsteen will be among a list of stars presenting or performing at the show, including Robert De Niro, Kerry Washington, Jim Parsons, Claire Danes, John Leguizamo, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Patti LuPone, Katharine McPhee, Tina Fey, Billy Joel, Matthew Morrison, Kelli O'Hara, Zachary Quinto and Andrew Rannells.

The co-hosts are Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban, who appeared on "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday. 

"We've known each other for a long time and we have such a nice natural chemistry and so it felt like this wonderful opportunity to do something that was scary but also to do it with a buddy," Bareilles said.

"It's nice to take risks with a friend. We both were a little nervous. This is new territory for both of us," Groban said. "We knew we'd have each other's backs."

The three-hour show on CBS starts at 8 p.m.
