Kate Gosselin joins Glee in the Emmy Opening number

The intro to the Emmys was totally GLEE-ful. It begins with the cast of our faithful four New Directions members (Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer) meeting host Jimmy Fallon and confessing that they can’t afford to attend the Emmy Awards because they can’t afford the cost of the tickets.

But a win at the Regionals will give them exactly what they need plus $5. They need 12 people and quickly add Tina Fey. On the way to the stage, we see Kate Gosselin offering to join because she does, after all, have some dance experience. We see Betty White giving dance lessons. White already had an Emmy for hosting “Saturday Night Live.”

Jane Lynch in a red track suit gives Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon a slushee and threatens them, forcing them to include her on their chorus. “Don’t even think of not including me in your pathetic little group.” They pass other Emmy nominees along the way.

On stage, Fallon performed as the Boss, Bruce Springsteen, singing “Born to Run” and then later taking a guitar to sing with Amy Poehler who was nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy series.
Jane Lynch won for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy series at the 62nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards show hosted by Jimmy Fallon. “Glee” was nominated for 19 awards, but won very few. Instead “Mad Men” and “Modern Family” collected the most Emmy Awards.
