HOT FROM FOX...

STEVE JONES OF "THE X FACTOR" TO CO-HOST "COUNTDOWN TO THE EMMYS(R)" SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, ON FOX

THE X FACTOR's Steve Jones will co-host COUNTDOWN TO THE EMMYS, the official live pre-show of the 63rd Primetime Emmy(R) Awards, airing Sunday, Sept. 18 (7:00-8:00 PM ET live/PT 4:00-5:00 PM PT live) on FOX. Jones joins previously announced co-hosts Nancy O'Dell, Mark Thompson and Amanda Byram.

The live one-hour special will capture the arrivals of Primetime Emmy(R) nominees, presenters and special guests. O'Dell, Thompson, Jones and Byram will set the stage for the night's festivities as they interview the stars on the red carpet and get the inside scoop on the fashion, the nerves and the excitement.

The star-studded evening continues with the 63RD PRIMETIME EMMY(R) AWARDS, airing live in all time zones (8:00-11:00 PM ET live/5:00-8:00 PM PT live). Hosted by Jane Lynch and executive-produced by Mark Burnett, the Emmys will celebrate the year's best television programming.

Jones is the host of THE X FACTOR, which launches with a two-night series premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Sept. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Last year was very busy for the Welsh-born Jones, who traveled around the globe to film several series, including British contest show "Drop Zone;" unscripted pilot "Wedding Crashers;" "101 Ways to Leave a Gameshow;" and the special "Jones Brothers Amazon Adventure." Most recently in the U.K., Jones hosted the third season of "Let's Dance" and did his second turn as a red carpet host for the annual BAFTA Awards, the British equivalent of the Academy Awards. Jones' on-camera career began when Elle magazine approached him to model for the publication. It was a natural progression to the screen, as Jones' unique sense of humor and ability to get the very best out of people made him perfect host material. He also continues his relationship with online retailer Very, styling and designing his Goodsouls collection.

COUNTDOWN TO THE EMMYS(R) will be executive-produced by Brad Lachman, and Bill Bracken will serve as producer.
