Fallon Show Trackers, Jimmy Fallon wants you!

Well, he wants your thumbs and best celebrity overtures (preferably in 140 characters or less).

The public will be able to submit an introduction through Twitter for up to 15 Emmy presenters handing out trophies at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Fallon ( @jimmyfallon to his Twitter followers), who's hosting the ceremony, will read the best tweet as each star takes the stage.

Starting Wednesday, a list of the presenters will be posted at NBC's website (, along with a Twitter link to enter suggested introductions.

So here’s your chance to practice! The TV academy has already announced “Mad Men" hunk Jon Hamm, "Glee" mentor Matthew Morrison, "30 Rock" writer/star Tina Fey and "The Office" creator Ricky Gervais among this year's presenters.  Stretch those thumb muscles and give us your best intros in the comments section.

The Emmys air live Sunday at 5 p.m. PST, from the downtown Nokia Theatre.
