Legend Lines Up For TV Guide Bash

Okay, so it’s not the Oscars but Emmy night is still one of Tinseltown’s biggest post-awards party nights. And the race is on to see who will get the prize for best bash on Sept. 16.

TV Guide is tossing its hat into the ring with a Les Deux-set soiree that will feature a “special private performance” by John Legend, the mag announced this week. In addition to the Grammy winner, the small-screen publication has again recruited the “Band From TV” to hit the stage for a second year in a row.

In case you don’t know, that group consists of TV regulars-turned-rockers Hugh Laurie, James Denton, Greg Grunberg and Bob Guiney with lead vocals by Bonnie Sommerville, star of the upcoming Cashmere Mafia on ABC. Oh, and if that’s not enough music for one night, celeb DJ Samantha Ronson will be in the house as well.
