We knew Neil Patrick Harris was only teasing us when he said he wasn't going to do a musical number!
He's way too good a host for that! But instead of opening the Emmy Awards with a song-and-dance, he decided to breathe new life into the show's halfway point!
Wait, middling doesn't mean what we think it means, does it? LOLz!
