During this year’s 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Telecast, “love in the afternoon” was given its due and its own very special tribute when a 3 minute plus clip package featuring some of the greatest love stories and couples throughout the years from the remaining four network soap operas.
As the tribute to soaps love stories played on-stage, Tessanne Chin, winner of season five of the The Voice, wowed the audience by performing the iconic Marvin Hamlisch tune from the landmark Broadway musical A Chorus Line, “What I Did For Love”. Chin sang alongside a montage of some of the most heart-tugging, memorable moments of super couples and duos.
However, since during the telecast the camera was often on Chin’s stirring performance, and not the clips that only those attending the Daytime Emmys could see, daytime fans had inquired how they could see the entire package. And now, On-Air On-Soaps is posting the segment exclusively here. Michael Fairman, who was the Daytime Emmy telecast consulting producer created the love stories clip package along with Daytime Emmy telecast editor Patrick Doody.
From General Hospital’s Luke and Laura, Sonny and Carly, Patrick and Robin, Sonny and Brenda, Maxie and Nathan, Julian and Alexis, to The Bold and the Beautiful’s Bill and Brooke, Liam and Hope, Ridge and Brooke, Rick and Maya, Liam and Steffy, to The Young and the Restless Nick and Sharon, Paul and Lauren, Victor and Nikki, Danny and Christine, Malcolm and Olivia, Phyllis and Jack, Katherine and Murphy, to Days of our Lives EJ and Sami, John and Isabella, Bo and Hope, Patch and Kayla, John and Marlena, Sonny and Will, and Abe and Lexie, were all a part of this emotional highlight of the Emmy ceremonies.
