Emmy Awards Will Open Up With A Lil Song & Dance
Wayne Brady will get his sing and dance on for the second time as host of the Daytime Emmy awards, to be held at the Las Vegas Hilton on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET and broadcast live on CBS.
Brady first hosted the awards honoring everything from soap operas to game shows to talk shows in 2003. Now, he’s back for the 38th annual affair, and will open the show performing alongside the Jabbawockeez, an all-male hip hop crew that has their own show on the Strip.
“We’re going to do something that maybe folks have never seen on the Daytime Emmys,” he said. “We’re looking to up the entertainment factor. It’s all done with a wink, look at all these feathers and sequins, but we’re just here to have a good time.”
The Daytime Emmys will pay tribute to Oprah Winfrey, who recently ended her lauded talk show after 25 years. She’ll receive the Crystal Pillar award for changing the face of daytime television.
