* Mimi showing off her wild side in in "Out Tonight," and subsequently, whichever given actress is playing her. It's an extremely difficult song, because not only does Mimi constantly switch between belting in her chest voice and howling like a wolf in her head voice, she does it while flipping, bending, kicking, pole dancing, and a ton of other crazy stuff ''[[UpToEleven while also]]'' flaunting her sexiness with all the confidence in the world. An actress playing Mimi is required to do ''all'' of that ''at the same time.'' Ladies, pull that off and you win musical theatre forever.

* May be more of a Real Life crowning moment, but Daphne Rubin-Vega's "Out Tonight" at the ''{{Rent}}'' 10th Anniversary deserves mention. [[LoveItOrHateIt Like her or not]], you have to admit that actually ''climbing onto the bars'' and doing all the original choreography - which includes back bends, a split, and high kicks - in skintight pants and high heels, with barely any preparation (the entire cast had expected to be just sitting and singing, like a concert, not actually performing) is pretty darn impressive. Not to mention that this was [[ActionMom after she'd had a kid.]]

May be more of a Real Life crowning moment, but Daphne Rubin-Vega's "Out Tonight" at the ''{{Rent}}'' 10th Anniversary deserves particular mention. [[LoveItOrHateIt Like her or not]], you have to admit that actually ''climbing onto the bars'' and doing all the original choreography - which includes back bends, a split, and high kicks - in skintight pants and high heels, with barely any preparation (the entire cast had expected to be just sitting and singing, like a concert, not actually performing) is pretty darn impressive.

* The opening number of the film is made even more powerful by having the tenants throw flaming eviction notices from the windows.

** Followed by a CrazyAwesome song showcasing Maureen's wackiness. The difficulty of the song "Over the Moon" and the amount of energy needed to pull it off makes the whole sequence a CMOA for any given actress who plays her.

* Would this fit here? OH well, I'm putting it here anyway. The Stage version of RENT. Finale B (which is CrowningMusicOfAwesome in itself), at the very end. Singing along, and then suddenly, everyone looks stage-right... and on runs Angel, who joins in singing. When this troper saw RENT, he knew perfectly well that it was coming, and he still burst into hysterically joyful tears.

** At the very end of the final Broadway performance, the original cast coming out and singing "Seasons of Love" with the final cast is worth the price of the DVD alone.

* For anyone singing Roger's part, his heartbroken "Mimiiiiiiiii" at the end of "Your Eyes" lasts ''twelve seconds,'' ending in a howl of pain. That takes serious lung power.

* Mimi recounts Angel's epic TakeThat against someone who was harassing her: "I'm more of a man than you'll ever be, and more of a woman than you'll ever get."
