The Voice: Surprise
In an oversaturated reality TV talent competition, we were surprised that the Emmy voters saw the glimmering shining star we know and love as The Voice and gave it a nod for Outstanding Reality Show Competition. The show's fourth season - featuring new judges Usher and Shakira - is especially deserving of some Emmy love. While American Idol chugs along into mediocre oblivion and Simon Cowell's X Factor still suffering from a little failure to launch syndrome, The Voice was must-see TV all winter long. Yes, all three hours of it every week.
