Elton John tribute to Liberace at Emmy

Los Angeles, Sep 23 : Singer Elton John paid a tribute to pianist and vocalist Liberace at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards. This was his first act at the event.


The 66-year-old performed on "Home Again", a song he said reminded him of Liberace, which is from his new album "The Diving Board", at the awards ceremony held at the Nokia Theatre here Sunday, reports telegraph.co.uk.

Liberace biopic "Behind the Candelabra" won three Emmys at the event. Acknowledging the influence Liberace had on his own music "and my dress sense", Elton John said: "This guy played a mean piano."

John was called on stage by actors Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.

Singer Carrie Underwood along with actor-producer Don Cheadle hosted a special segment for television of the 1960s, marking the impact of the coverage of President John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963 and The Beatles' debut appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" in 1964.

As a tribute, Underwood performed on "Yesterday" originally recorded by The Beatles.

The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards was hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, who not just entertained the audience with his vibrant hosting, but also performed at the function.
