Elton John will get a chance to honor Liberace, the only man with more flamboyant fashion sense than the “Rocket Man” himself.
John will perform a tribute to the late pianist at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards, which airs September 22 on CBS. No details about his actual performance have been released as of now. It’s the first time the Sir Elton has appeared on the awards show.
