Jane Lynch opened the 63rd Emmy Awards with a song and dance number that took the audience through the world of television, reimagined as an inner-city apartment building housing all the top TV shows.

Lynch walked through scenes of hit series like 'Mad Men' (where she was asked to leave the room when she informed Don Draper that in 50 years people would be fast-forwarding through commercials) and 'The Big Bang Theory' (where she learned that not all jokes merit canned laughter).
