Emmy Awards 2013: Tina Fey And Amy Poehler Heckle Host Neil Patrick Harris

The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards came and went and the best crop of television talent have left the Nokia Theatre, and will be eager to find the best Emmy -after party Los Anglees has to offer. But what was the award ceremony like this year?

The host, Neil Patrick Harrris started off slightly sluggish and according to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, it needed something else, it needed twerking! From the front row, the two female comedians were heard shouting at Harris during his chaotic opening sequence, to start performing a 'twerk', the dance made famous by Miley Cyrus's infamous MTV Video Music Award performance.

Whilst seated at the front row wearing 3D glasses and eating a rather large bag of popcorn, both Fey and Peohler butted in on how they thought he could improve the show.

"We've got some advice for you, take your pants off," Fey said.

"Twerk it! Work that twerk," Poehler shouted.

"I thought an awards show involved twerking," Fey moaned.

The hecklers didn't stop there as they continued to interrupt the How I met Your Mother star as they insisted that Harris take his pants off and when he responded saying it would be "degrading", Poehler replied "it would be degrading but we would be grateful."

The awards show-hosting king didn't even give the audience a musical number in the opening sequence and made them wait until the middle of the ceremony for a song and dance, but it could have been a strategy to rejuvenate the weary crowd.
