ACM award-winning artist Justin Moore just landed an Emmy nomination in the category for a very unlikely performance. Most artists are nominated for performing their own music on talk shows or live events. Moore’s nomination is for “The Ballad of Claus Jorstad (Devil Stool)”, a spoof written by Jimmy Kimmel and Gary Greenberg and performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in November 2016, about a man who got stuck sitting on an IKEA stool in the shower.
“If you had told me I would be a part of earning an Emmy nod for singing a song about what I did, I would have thought you were crazy. Haha,” said Moore. “Nonetheless, it’s very cool to hear. I’m excited for Jimmy and his crew. Hopefully, we can bring it home. They told me this week that they would share it with me, so it would be pretty cool to add an Emmy to the mantle.”
Music from “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”, “Saturday Night Live”, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”, “Netflix documentary “13th”, and “Duck The Halls: A Mickey Mouse Christmas Special” are also nominated for the award.
