The original Broadway cast of Rent reunited last night to sing "Seasons of Love" as part of the musical's live broadcast on Fox.

Stars including Idina Menzel and Jesse L Martin sang the hit number from the Tony Award-winning musical, before being joined by the live broadcast cast, which featured Vanessa Hudgens, Keala Settle and Valentina.

Loosely based on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's award-winning musical follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished artists struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. It features the songs "Take Me Or Leave Me", "Seasons of Love" and "La Vie Boheme".

The musical was performed in full on the night, with highlights then posted on YouTube. You can watch some below.





With the live performances disrupted by a cast injury and a lot of pre-recorded footage shown instead, Fox has since released a number of clips from the real concert on its YouTube channel.
