This year was special for the Outstanding Choreography category and for all the choreographers themselves as for the very first (and only till now) time, the award would be announced during the Primetime Show and not during the Creative Awards ceremony. The Primetime show is televised and watched by millions so, this was a huge opportunity for all the choreographers to show their talent via the amazing special routine they prepared for the show.
