It has been decided, this year it is Glee’s Jane Lynch who will be hosting the 63rd PRIMETIME EMMY AWARDS which will air live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sept. 18, on FOX.

Last year, Jimmy Fallon hosted the Award show during which Jane Lynch won an Emmy Award herself for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on GLEE. And so we’ll see how Jane Lynch fares this year when she takes the stage.

“I am tickled pink to be hosting the Primetime Emmys on FOX,” said Lynch. “I’m looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit.”

“Jane was my first – and only – choice as the host for this year’s Primetime Emmys, and I am glad she said ‘yes,'” said executive producer Mark Burnett. “She has incredible comedic timing, and is a charismatic, talented actress whose energy leaps off the screen and stage. I am thrilled and excited to have her as our host.”

“We’re delighted to have Jane Lynch host the Primetime Emmys this year,” said John Shaffner, Chairman and CEO, Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. “When our host has comedic, dramatic and musical talents – as Jane proved in last year’s opening number – we know it’s going to be fun for us and for the audience at home!”

“Jane Lynch is one of the most gifted and entertaining actresses in film and television today, and we are thrilled she will be hosting the Primetime Emmys on FOX,” said Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “With her background in improvisation, her incredible comedic timing and a worldwide fan base that spans all ages, Jane is the perfect person to help us make this year’s show absolutely unforgettable.”

Nominations for the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced at 5:40 AM PT on Thursday, July 14, from the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre, on the campus of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in North Hollywood, CA.
