Neil Patrick Harris didn't disappoint. It just took him a while to get to the song-and-dance number everyone was waiting for.
It came right about the middle of the Emmys show — and it was most aptly titled, "The Number in the Middle of the Show."
In it, the Emmys host addressed the expectations — unmet — that he was going to open the show with a musical number.
"Opening numbers are so old hat," he sang. "Even Hugh Jackman does stuff like that."
Some "really sexy dancing," in the host's words, ensued.
And the many fans of Harris's terrific Tony-hosting gigs breathed a sigh of relief.
