Though the opening number was frustratingly dance-less, the Emmys ultimately satisfied audience expectations with a random Neil Patrick Harris dance number in the middle of the show, featuring a disco beat and a shimmying Sarah Silverman.
The entire Emmy show has felt fairly random—just look at the winners list—and this dance number was no exception, based on the premise that, well, it's a random musical number in the middle of the show. Harris was joined by Silverman, who crooned the word "vagina," and, for some reason (Castle promo?) Nathan Fillion.

Update: There was a second dance number as well, choreographed by the nominated choreographers. Breaking Bad interpretive dance, anyone?
