Shocker: Constantine Maroulis fails to win Tony

Sorry, Constantine. It's not as though you had any real chance at winning "American Idol," let alone a Tony award. (And not for " Rock of Ages" -- blame a year of slim musical pickings on Broadway.) Instead, you were beat out by a trio of pre-teens. "Billy Elliot: The Musical" stars David Alvarez, Kiril Kulish and Trent Kowalik -- who rotate the lead role of aspiring dancer Billy -- made Tony history Sunday night when all three kids were awarded the prize for best actor in a musical. The trio, who were initially speechless, took turns thanking their parents, siblings and dance academies.Bryan Bedder / Getty Images
