** May be more of a Real Life crowning moment, but Daphne Rubin-Vega's "Out Tonight" at the 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. Not to mention that this was [[ActionMom after she'd had a kid]]. She was also borderline flawless with this song in the original Broadway production.

** "Christmas Bells" as a whole is a very impressive number, with at least half a dozen different parts going on simultaneously right before Maureen's entrance.

* Benny gets one by [[spoiler: footing the bill for Angel's funeral]].
* Mimi showing off her wild side in in "Out Tonight," which is subsequently a CMOA for whichever given actress 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.

* 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.
