The “All of Me” singer’s big moment came in the show’s second act when he performed “Gethsemane (I Only Want to Say).”

“I only want to say/if there is a way/take this cup away from me,” he sang, tearing the house down in the process. “For I don’t want to taste its poison/feel it burn me/ I have changed/ I’m not as sure as when we started.”
