Read about it here.
The host of the 2010 Emmy Awards for television had to be someone hip, someone current, someone who could go above and beyond what Neil Patrick Harris did for the 2009 Emmy's and most importantly, someone who is on TV! This someone was the one and only Jimmy Fallon of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC. He's not only a hilarious comedian, actor and late night host, he's also a musician and boy did he want everyone to know this last night! Jimmy not only opened the show with a musical number he also segued between each award category (drama, comedy, reality, etc.) with a different acoustic parody duet with other celebs including former SNL mate Amy Poehler. As it all came together it appeared that Fallon was the right man for the job.
The Opening Number
The Emmy's kicked off with a comical rendition of Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen's "Born to Run" guest starring the cast of Glee, Tina Fey, Mad Men's Jon Hamm, and Betty White. It was an opening sequence for the ages! It had an appropriate combination of talent, humor, and entertainment all headlined by the nonchalant comedy of Jimmy Fallon. Can't get much better!
