Lonely IslandLonely Island will put its stamp on the Emmys.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Andy Samberg and his group Lonely Island, Maya Rudolph and Ed Helms will perform a musical medley during the 63rd annual ceremony.

Rudolph stars in NBC's new comedy 'Up All Night' -- her character sings! -- and Ed Helms' 'The Office' character is known for busting out into song at the drop of a hat. Lonely Island had three songs up for Emmys -- including '3-Way (The Golden Rule)' -- but lost out to Justin Timberlake's 'Saturday Night Live' monologue.

The NBC stars join the "Emmingtons," a group of actors who will introduce several Emmy categories.

The Emmingtons include 'Chuck' star Zachary Levi, Joel McHale of 'Community' fame, 'NCIS: LA' star LL Cool J, Taraji P. Henson of 'Person of Interest,' 'How I Met Your Mother' star Cobie Smulders, 'The Office' actress Kate Flannery' and 'Awake' actor Wilmer Valderrama.

Jimmy Fallon, host of the 62nd annual ceremony, made headlines for his big musical opening number starring the cast of 'Glee,' Jon Hamm, Tina Fey, Nina Dobrev, Jorge Garcia, Joel McHale, Kate Gosselin and Betty White.
