And the Emmy (hosting duty) goes to ... Seth Meyers!

Posted: 26 Apr 2014 03:45 AM PDT

Comedian Seth Meyers has been chosen to host this year's Primetime Emmy Awards in August.

Seth Meyers is to host the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards 2014. The Late Night With Seth Meyers host is set to front the annual event for the first time on Aug 25 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, which will air on NBC in the US.

Bruce Rosenblum, head of the Television Academy, said: "Seth is such a talented performer and writer, and we know he will bring something unique to hosting the Primetime Emmy Awards."

The glamorous ceremony, which honours the best in US primetime television programming, will be held one month earlier than usual, and on a Monday instead of the usual Sunday, because of NBC's contractual commitment to televise Sunday Night Football.

Meyers, 40, who has previously won three Emmy awards for his involvement in the long-running show Saturday Night Live, follows in the footsteps of How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted the event last year on CBS.

In 2012, Jimmy Kimmel fronted the awards on ABC, before taking over from Glee star Jane Lynch, who led the ceremony for Fox in 2011. Meanwhile, Meyers was named as one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people recently alongside Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Matthew McConaughey, Miley Cyrus and Amy Adams. — Bang Showbiz

The First Lady of the United States will be appearing in an episode of Disney's Jessie sitcom.

Michelle Obama, the wife of US President Barack Obama, will guest star on Disney Channel comedy Jessie in an upcoming episode.

The episode highlights the service, sacrifice and needs of military families. Obama will appear as part of the White House's Joining Forces initiative.

Additionally, Obama will take part in a public service announcement that accompanies the episode.

On the episode, titled From The White House To Our House, Jessie (Debby Ryan) and Zuri (Skai Jackson) plan a birthday party for Taylor (Kyla-Drew Simmon) whose mother is a deployed member of the military.

But when Taylor doesn't want to celebrate without her mother, Zuri turns to Obama for help.

Obama has made numerous appearances on news and talk shows, but she's only guest-starred once before on a scripted show – playing herself on Nickelodeon's iCarly

She is also set to guest star on a military-themed episode of ABC's Nashville in May. – Reuters
