Some of the biggest faces in Broadway and Hollywood united for a massive fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in New York Monday night. But in an evening of memorable performances live-streamed on Facebook (by Neil Patrick Harris, Billy Crystal, and Sarah Jessica Parker to name a few), the internet is most abuzz about Lin-Manuel Miranda reuniting with his former Hamilton co-star Renée Elise Goldsberry to drop a new set of commandments.
In Hamilton, “The Ten Duel Commandments” explain the proper etiquette of participating in an 18th-century duel (and is later reprised to depict Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr’s infamous duel in “The World Was Wide Enough”). There may not be a physical duel this time around, but the stakes for this election are just as high. Miranda and Goldsberry reveal the new set of Voting Commandments, and it’s not about what you need to know, it’s what you need to do—plus get in a few digs at Donald Trump along the way.

Sure, the Clinton supporters in the crowd already know who to vote for on Election Day, but the song is pretty informative in getting out the one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10 reasons why anyone should vote for her. As Miranda says, “I have only one overwhelming feeling: Anybody here wanna shatter a glass ceiling?”
