Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program

The Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program is an award presented annually by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) and Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS). It was first awarded at the 43rd Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards in 2016 when the award was originally called Outstanding Musical Performance in a Talk Show/Morning Program and was first presented to Rachel Platten for her performance of her hit single "Fight Song" on the morning program Good Morning America.[1][2][3] The Award honors the work of a musical artist and the Program’s production of the performance.[4] With the current title award name that was established in 2017, on-camera musical performances from any appropriate Daytime show and several entries for performances by different musical artists appearing on a program are eligible to enter the competition, rather than just a talk show or morning program.[5]
