“Glee” star Jane Lynch will host the Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony in September, organizers of the television industry’s top honors said on Thursday.

Lynch, 50, won an Emmy last year for her role as scheming high school cheerleader coach Sue Sylvester on the Fox musical comedy series.

The actress said she was “tickled pink” to be hosting the 2011 ceremony, to be televised live from Los Angeles on September 18.

“I’m looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit,” she quipped in a statement.

Mark Burnett, the executive producer of the Emmy Awards show, said Lynch was his first choice to host the show.
