We came for the fash-un. We stayed for the winners. And with an unconventional award show last year due to COVID-19, we had high expectations for the 73rd annual Emmy Awards. Lucky for us, it didn’t disappoint. From Rita Wilson rapping to Cedric the Entertainer calling out Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, here are the five best moments of the night.

1. the musical opening number from Cedric, LL Cool J and More

When we heard Cedric was hosting, we were pretty much expecting a musical number. However, what we didn’t expect was to hear Rita Wilson rapping (well, we might add).

2. When Cedric the Entertainer Called Out Prince Harry & Meghan Markle

Oh yeah, he went there.

3. Ken Jeong’s Unnecessarily Long Bit

While we appreciate what he was trying to do, we didn’t need another reminder about how COVID-19 has changed award shows. We would have been more than happy to see him announce the winner for Sketch Comedy from the inside of the building.

4. When the 'Schitt’s Creek’ cast were left speechless

Don’t tell us you didn’t get emotional seeing the Roses back together (even though Eugene Levy managed to mess up the prompter). Moira Rose even made a brief appearance.
