They’re already singing the praises of Glee star Jane Lynch, who will host the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept. 18. “Jane was my first—and only—choice as the host for this year’s Primetime Emmys, and I am glad she said ‘yes,’” Executive Producer Mark Burnett said. “I am tickled pink to be hosting the Primetime Emmys on Fox,” Lynch said. “I’m looking forward to singing, dancing, and sporting my finest tracksuit.” This won’t be Lynch’s first time on the Emmy stage: In 2010, she won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role as Sue Sylvester on Glee.
