The 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight' hitmaker will perform for the first time at the awards show, accompanying the appearance of presenters Matt Damon and Michael Douglas.

Elton John is set to make his first performance at the Primetime Emmy Awards. The British super star will play tribute to another legendary musician, Liberace, whose biopic "Behind the Candelabra" is nominated in 15 categories at the event.

The "Candle in the Wind " singer will sing while Matt Damon and Michael Douglas present at the event. Both actors are up for Leading Actor in a Made-for-TV Movie/Miniseries award for their roles in the HBO movie.

"We have a great performance by Sir Elton John," host Neil Patrick Harris gushes about John's upcoming performance. "He's a friend and also super-talented. His new album is coming out and is amazing, so I'm looking forward to that."

The 65th annual prize-giving event is also expected to feature a tribute to the late "Glee" star, Cory Monteith. The show will take place Sunday, September 22 and air live on CBS from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles at 8 P.M.
