Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris to dance with nominated choreographers

Emmycast producer Ken Ehrich has devised a unique way to showcase host Neil Patrick Harris. The talented multi-hyphenate will perform a dance number devised by eight of the nominees for Best Choreography on the Sept. 22 kudocast. 

To truly commit to the event, the choreography award will be presented at the conclusion of this dance number rather than during the Creative Arts ceremony where it has been presented in the past. To make time for this, the Reality Host award is being bounced to that earlier kudocast which will air on the new FXX network. 

The choreography prize is a “juried award," not a competitive “category."  Nominees and winners are determined by a screening panel and there may be a single champ or multiple ones. Indeed, there have been six ties (1989, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2009, 2011) over the past quarter century while three nominees prevailed in 2007. 

This year's line-up features seven sets of nominees: "So You Think You Can Dance" claims four of those slots, while "Dancing With the Stars" has two and "Live from Lincoln Center" rounds out the list for its broadcast of the stage musical "Carousel."  

"So You Think You Can Dance" enjoyed a five-year winning streak from 2007 to 2011, picking up seven Emmys (it tied itself in 2007 and 2011). Last year, "Smash" won this prize solo but was snubbed this year. And while "Dancing with the Stars" has reaped 10 bids since 2006, it has yet to prevail in this race. 

Below, check out Harris delivering a show-stopping number as he kicked off hosting the 2013 Tonycast. He won two of his three Emmys for emceeing these kudos in 2009 and 2011 and contends at this year's Emmys for hosting last year's Tonys too. (His other Emmy came for guesting on "Glee" in 2010.)
