Elton to Perform Tribute to Liberace at Emmy's
The multi-Grammy Award winner’s performance will pay tribute to the late, world renowned performer, Liberace, whose HBO biopic, Behind the Candelabra, was nominated for 15 Emmy Awards this year. This performance will accompany the previously announced appearances as presenters by Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, who were both nominated in Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie category for their roles in the film.
While Elton has played over 3,500 concerts in his career, including performances at the Grammys, Oscars and Tonys, this marks his very first appearance at the Emmy Awards.
The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and will air live coast-to-coast from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday, September 22 at 8pm EDT/5pm PDT on CBS.
