The Emmys were mostly back to normal for the 2021 ceremony, with a few differences (like a musical opening instead of a monologue), including some fun facts presented by the DJ, Reggie Watts.

If you think you recognize him, it might be as the band leader on The Late Late Show With James Corden. (And if you’ve been loving listening to his voice, you might want to check out Tuca & Bertie, on which he voices Pastry Pete.) The comedian, actor, and musician took the show into commercial breaks at the beginning with things such as a reminder that the show is following COVID protocols and the following words of wisdom:

“Television does more than just entertain us. It has the power to let us see ourselves as we truly are and dream of all that we can possibly dream within our possibilities. Tonight, we celebrate the storytellers who show us what is possible in the world of possibilities, the Emmys and Kia honor our nominees and the creators of a tomorrow beyond tomorrow.”
