Jane Lynch already has practice winning an Emmy. But come Sunday night, she’s going to face a new challenge: running the show.

Fellow costars and nominees say the Glee star and first-time Emmy host, who is also nominated for her role as Sue Sylvester, is definitely up for the gig.

“She’s going to kill it,” Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy, who is an Emmy nominee for her role on Mike & Molly, tells PEOPLE. “And I have a good seat to watch Jane just destroy it.”

Dot-Marie Jones, who costars with Lynch on Glee, says she’s been clocking plenty of practice time as she gears up for her hosting gig.
