NBC's hit show The Voice just won its very first Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program on September 22, 2013 — just one day before original coaches Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Cee Lo Green return to their Big Red Chairs for Season 5. How's that for perfect timing?!
The Voice was nominated for the same Emmy in 2012, but lost out against The Amazing Race. This year, The Voice beat out The Amazing Race, Dancing With the Stars, Project Runway, So You Think You Can Dance, and Top Chef.
This win really comes as no surprise to us, considering the show's stellar ratings since it debuted in 2011. In fact, The Voice was such a success with critics and fans that now it has two cycles per year — one in the spring and one in the fall.
This fall, the four original coaches jump-start Season 5 with an epic rendition of "I Love Rock 'n' Roll." Check out the sneak peek clip here.
*Side note: How amazing does Christina look?
The Voice Season 5 premieres on Monday, September 23 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Will you watch?
