In a conference call with reporters yesterday, which I just read about in The Hollywood Reporter this morning, Emmy host Ryan Seacrest said that the Sept. 16 telecast will open with a musical number, and “that musical number, as you can well imagine, will be like nothing you’ve seen in years past.” The good news: that should rule out another round of “Emmy Idol.”

What do you think this mystery musical number will be? Seacrest says he “may or may not” take part in it, depending on his confidence level on Emmy night. So, fingers crossed, that means it’s not American Idol-related. I’m secretly hoping concerned it will be a High School Musical spoof, since Fox likes to appeal to the young folk…
