Elton John to Pay Tribute to Liberace at the Emmys

It has been recently revealed that the Rocket Man is gracing the Emmys with his presence!

Since we already know he will be performing during the televisions industry’s biggest night of the year, the question is how can make this totally ‘Elton John’? The only way that Elton possibly can, stepping it up a notch and making it a tribute to Liberace.

It makes sense since the biopic Behind the Candelabra is up for 15 Emmys.

The performance, which marks Elton John’s first appearance at the awards show, will also accompany Behind the Candelabra nominees Michael Douglas and Matt Damon when they present during the show.

The list of presenters also includes powerhouse duos Kerry Washington and the legendary Diahann Carroll, funnyladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, sisters Zooey and Emily Deschanel, and Allison Janney and Anna Faris.

American Horror Story leads the way in nominations with 17 nods, followed by Game of Thrones with 16. Like Candelabra, NBC’s Saturday Night Live scored 15. Justin Timberlake is nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy for his stint on SNL.

Hosted for the second time by Neil Patrick Harris, the show will air live on CBS from the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live in Los Angeles starting at 8 p.m. ET on September 22, 2013.
