Here’s a spoiler about Sunday night’s Emmys broadcast and it’s a juicy one: According to my source inside the Nokia Theatre today, the big opening number features host Jimmy Fallon coming out alone with an electric guitar and singing/playing “Born to Run.” Then he is joined by Randy Jackson from American Idol on bass.
Then by a dance troupe consisting of Mad Men’s Jon Hamm, 30 Rock’s Tina Fey, Community/Talk Soup’s Joel McHale, and Glee’s Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch. (There’s also a very buxom blonde whom my source couldn’t ID.) Robin Antin, creator of the Pussycat Dolls, was choreographing. “I left at 5 PM.
I think it’s going to take a lot more time to whip the number into shape,” my insider predicted.
