‘The Voice’ Wins 2015 Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Competition Program
The Voice was nominated for six awards at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards, but going into tonight’s show, it had only one award to its name: Outstanding Lighting Design/Lighting Direction. But that all changed when the envelope was opened tonight.
On the even of its ninth season premiere, The Voice won the 2015 Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality-Competition Series! The show triumphed over amazing competition this year, as the fellow nominees were The Amazing Race, Dancing with the Stars, Project Runway, So You Think You Can Dance, and Top Chef.
Producer Mark Burnett accepted onstage with the crew and host Carson Daly, apologizing to The Amazing Race for interrupting their incredible streak of Emmy wins in this category. However, this isn’t the first win in this category for The Voice, as the show won in 2013, becoming the first singing show to win the award.
Congratulations to Mark Burnett and the cast and crew of The Voice on their big Emmy win!
Join us tomorrow night for the season premiere of The Voice! Until then, watch the amazing, four-chair turn preview for Season 9 here!
