Jane Lynch is ready to host the Emmy awards and she wants to make sure her routine is funny.

The 'Glee' actress – who portrays tough-talking cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in the Fox musical comedy – explained while she is openly gay, she won't be focusing her jokes and sketches at the ceremony on homosexuality and just wants to be "funny".

She said: "I'm a person, not just a gay person. So I don't focus on gay things like that. I just focus on good jokes and being funny.


"I've thought of every aspect of it, I'm very much collaborating with everybody."


As a first-time host of the Emmy Awards – at which she won the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in 'Glee' last year – Jane admitted she is "humbled", yet nervous about presenting such a big ceremony.

She added: "I think you want to make a splash. I'd be lying if I said if I didn't say we wanted to make the best awards show ever. We want it to be special. It's such a coveted spot, it's the biggest night in television, as they call it.


"You want to do it justice, or at least I do. I'm humbled by it and I think if you look at the big picture and you shoot past the doing of it and you look at the results and say, 'I'm going to do fabulous', you're not going to do very well.


"So I'm just trying to stay in the moment, knocking out what I need to knock out."


The 63rd Primetime Emmy awards take place at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre on September 18.
