Seth Meyers is aiming to ''avoid a trainwreck'' when he presents the Emmy Awards tonight (25.08.14).

The 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' host will deem his presenting slot successful at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles if nothing disastrous happens that will still be the main topic of conversation next week.

Speaking to UsMagazine, he said: ''I think if you can avoid a trainwreck, people are pretty happy. People talk more about the Emmys in the two months leading up to the Emmys than they do the day after.

''You just want, hopefully a week after, no one will be talking about it anymore.''

However, Seth, 40, insists he won't be shaking his bottom for entertainment purposes because he ''can't dance'' and will make sure he's out of sight when the mysterious musical performance takes place.

He explained: ''I can't sing and I can't dance, but, I'm hoping at least, there will be something a little musical in the show. I promise to be far away in the wings when that happens. That's my guarantee to you. No twerking -- nobody wants that.''

Seth will also be joined at the glamorous 66th annual ceremony, which honours the best in primetime television programming, by Halle Berry, Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts and Kerry Washington, when they take to the stage for their presenting slots.
