Jimmy Fallon to host Emmy Awards

May 4, 2010 | 10:23 am

Jimmy_Fallon It seems Jimmy Fallon's auto-tuned performance at last year’s Emmy Awards left a lasting impression.  NBC announced Tuesday that the "Saturday Night Live" alum will host the awards show this summer.

Guess Jay Z was wrong about the death of auto-tune.

It is the first Emmy-hosting gig for the "Late Night" host, who is already a seasoned vet of the MTV awards circuit.

The prime-time Emmys will be broadcast live on Aug. 29
