    THANKS, Stargazer and John, for the reassuring info! I appreciate it.

    FORTcon is getting closer! I leave tomorrow for the Chicago trip that is keeping me from coming to Vegas. I've been enjoying reading about all of your plans and I can't wait to hear all about the trip when you all get back home.

    That Sunday night is the Emmy Awards - who's hosting the Emmy watching party!?

    If Star Jones is doing the pre-show, we can throw things at the TV and make fun of her!

    Roses! Hey, here's an idea: we can charge admission and make enough money to pay for the room!

    Note to self: purchase many aerodynamic, but soft, objects to hurl at TV.

    Bring earplugs...they are having emmy idol


    Awards show adds "Emmy Idol" contest

    By LYNN ELBER

    The Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES The Emmy Awards will be singing a different tune at this month's ceremony, and it could be a classic.

    In an "American Idol"-style competition, stars and singers ranging from William Shatner to Donald Trump to Frederica von Stade will perform themes from TV series, with viewers able to pick their favorite song via online or text-message voting.

    Kristen Bell ("Veronica Mars") will be the only solo performer, with her version of the "Fame" theme, while others will sing duets.

    The dynamic duos announced by CBS and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for the contest tagged "Emmy Idol":

    William Shatner ("Boston Legal") and opera's von Stade with the theme from Shatner's 1960s series "Star Trek."

    Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace") and Trump ("The Apprentice") with the "Green Acres" tune.

    Gary Dourdan ("CSI: Crime Scene Investigation") and R&B artist Macy Gray with "Movin' On Up" from "The Jeffersons."

    "There are certain television theme songs that are nearly as memorable as the shows connected to them," said Ken Ehrlich, the ceremony's executive producer.

    "By jogging memories as well as creating wonderful moments by having them performed on this year's Emmy show, we think we're giving viewers one more reason to tune in and be entertained," Ehrlich said in a weekend statement.

    The Sept. 18 ceremony on CBS will open with Earth, Wind & Fire performing its song "September" along with the Black Eyed Peas.

    While music is an integral part of the Academy Awards, which feature nominated movie songs, it's not typically key to the ceremony honoring the best of television.

    Meanwhile, in honor of the victims of Hurricane Katrina, Ehrlich said all Emmy presenters and performers will be given magnolias, the state flower of both Louisiana and Mississippi. In addition, he said, information will be provided throughout the three-hour telecast on how viewers can support the recovery effort.

    Emmy host Ellen DeGeneres, a Louisiana native, last hosted the Emmys in 2001, when she was praised for striking just the right tone for the ceremony. It had been delayed twice after the 9/11 attacks.
