“I am nervous, man. JAY-Z is watching,” executive producer Jesse Collins said during his acceptance speech. “First on behalf of the fellow executive producers and our performers, we would like to thank the television academy for this incredible honor. It’s amazing. This is the first time this show has ever won this award and it’s so incredible to be a part of this moment. It took an incredible team to pull this together and I thank you all.”
At the Halftime Show, which took place in February, some of the biggest names in music performed a medley of their greatest hits. 50 Cent made a special guest appearance and recreated his “In Da Club” music video.
