Glee‘s Jane Lynch has been tapped to host the Emmys this year – and yes, she promises to rock her “finest tracksuit” for the occasion.

Lynch, who plays Sue Sylvester on the FOX hit, will also play host for the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards, airing live from Los Angeles in September.

She’ll be in familiar territory, having won an Emmy herself last year for her role on Glee.

“I am tickled pink to be hosting the Primetime Emmys on FOX, Lynch, 50, said in a statement. “I m looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit.”
