The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards air tonight (September 12). SNL cast member, Kenan Thompson is hosting. Most of the awards were handed out last weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys events, including most of the reality show categories.

Tonight will feature the big acting and series awards. However, Best Competitive Reality Show will be handed out tonight. The Voice, The Amazing Race and more are nominated.

Opening Performance

I’m not sure what was happening here? Playing updated version s of television theme songs or something? I expected Kenan to be a better host. 

The Voice’s John Legend will perform “Pieces” off his new album LEGEND for the “in memoriam” segment of the show.

Kelly Clarkson presented Best Actress in a Drama Series to Zendaya 

Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls won the Competition Reality category over The Amazing Race and The Voice, which wasn’t surprising. She’s a famous face fronting a reality show. It makes sense that her show would win. 

The three-hour, coast-to-coast live telecast broadcasts from the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles starting at Monday, Sept. 12 and begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC and is streaming live for the first time on Peacock.
