It's official: Actress Jane Lynch will host the 2011 Emmys, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences confirmed Thursday.

"Jane was my first - and only - choice as the host for this year's Primetime Emmys, and I am glad she said 'yes,'" executive producer Mark Burnett said in a statement.

"I am tickled pink to be hosting the Primetime Emmys," added Lynch. "I'm looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit."

Lynch, who is also known for her roles in 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin' and 'Party Down,' won an Emmy last year for playing Sue Sylvester on the popular comedy series 'Glee.' She also took part in last year's epic opening montage, which bodes well for her hosting abilities.
