Emmy Awards: Your Ultimate Pre-Show Preview
September 16, 2005

TV’s biggest night is almost here, and everyone in Hollywood is talking Emmy! But be sure to expect the unexpected at the 57th Annual Emmy Awards.

Only "Extra" was with Donald Trump Friday as he shot a guest spot on "Days of Our Lives." And in between takes, he told us all about his Emmy-night duet with Megan Mullally.

"I'm going to be singing ‘Green Acres,’" Trump revealed. "Can you believe this -- on the Emmys?"

Also on Friday, Emmy host Ellen DeGeneres continued her quest for the perfect gown. She’s also keeping busy planning her big Emmy night and her live post-Emmy hour Monday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

But despite the Emmy hoopla, all over Los Angeles the stars were keeping the victims of Hurricane Katrina in mind. At pre-Emmy events like the Silver Spoon Hollywood Buffet, Molly Sims and Traci Bingham shopped until they dropped to benefit the Red Cross.

"Every cent counts," Sims insisted.

Actress Estella Warren joined the Osbourne family’s celebrity dog trainer Tamar Geller and the Best Friends Animal Society at the Pre-Emmy Style Lounge to help find homes for Katrina's four-legged victims.

And "Malcolm in the Middle's" Jane Kaczmarek kept the spotlight on Katrina, raising funds for victims through her Clothes off Your Back Charity at L'Ermitage Hotel's exclusive pre-Emmy party.

So get ready, because it’s all leading up to the big night and an even bigger after party, right in the heart of Hollywood. "Extra" is teaming up with TV Guide and Inside TV to host the biggest, hottest Emmy party ever, at the fabulous Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, where the one and only DJ AM will be spinning his magic.

So make sure you tune to "Extra" on Monday for the winners, the Emmy fashions and the night’s hottest parties.
