Jimmy Fallon to host Emmy Awards
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
