For her first outfit of the evening, the show’s host, Jane Lynch, said she was wearing David Meister with Lorraine Schwartz jewels. “This is one of four, ladies and gentleman!” she announced. Although the Glee star admitted she was nervous about hosting the show, she told Seacrest: “I slept very well last night. I had a cookie and went to bed.” And when the show ends, she says, the first thing she’s going to do is “take off my heels!”
