Jane Lynch will host this year's prime-time Emmy ceremony, Fox announced Thursday.
"We're delighted ... 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," said John Shaffner, chairman of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Lynch, who took home the Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Comedy last year for her performance as Sue Sylvester on Glee, joked: "I'm looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit."
Emmy nominations will come out July 14, and the 63rd awards ceremony in Los Angeles — with Mark Burnett as executive producer — will air Sept. 18 on Fox.
