‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ skit with Justin Moore earns Emmy nomination

The Emmys air live on CBS on September 17th

Chart-topping, ACM award-winning artist Justin Moore’s performance in a Jimmy Kimmel Live! skit landed an Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category for “The Ballad of Claus Jorstad (Devil Stool).” The spoof was written by Jimmy Kimmel and Gary Greenberg.

“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,” says Moore in a press release. “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.”

Watch below as the platinum-selling artist introduces his wicked sense of humor to the late night audience as he performed the song about an unlucky man in Norway who had an unfortunate run-in with an Ikea stool in the shower.

The 2017 Emmy Awards will air live on CBS on September 17th at 8 pm ET.

Moore performed both his latest hit single “Somebody Else Will” and title track “Kinda Don’t Care” Tuesday night (August 1st) on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Moore has six No. 1’s, including “You Look Like I Need A Drink,” the first single from his latest album, Kinda Don’t Care, which was released last fall on Valory Music Co.
