Carole King, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Sting & More to Appear on Tony Awards Sunday Night

Courtesy of the Tony AwardsThere are so many top music stars appearing on the Tony Awards Sunday night, you'd be forgiven for thinking it's the Grammy Awards.

Carole King, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Sting and Gloria Estefan are among the performers and presenters on this year's telecast, which airs live from New York's Radio City Music Hall on CBS starting at 8 p.m. ET.

King, whose life inspired the nominated musical Beautiful, will serve as a presenter, as will Estefan and her husband Emilio, who have their own musical in the works called On Your Feet!

Knight, LaBelle and one-time American Idol winner Fantasia will team up for a performance with the cast of After Midnight, which pays tribute to Duke Ellington's orchestra that played at Harlem's legendary Cotton Club in the 1920s.  Sting will perform a tune from his upcoming Broadway musical, The Last Ship.  Other singers slated to perform include Idina Menzel and Jennifer Hudson.

Hugh Jackman hosts the festivities, and other stars who'll be appearing include Tina Fey, Orlando Bloom, Samuel L. Jackson, Bradley Cooper, Neil Patrick Harris, Kevin Bacon, Will Ferrell, Zach Braff, Tony Goldwyn, Wayne Brady, Emmy Rossum, Maggie Gyllenhaal and many, many more.
