(AP) Elton John is about to do something he's never done: Perform live at the Emmy Awards.


The television academy announced Monday that the 66-year-old musician will make his Emmy debut with a tribute to Liberace, whose life story is told in HBO's "Behind the Candelabra."


The movie earned 15 Emmy nominations, including lead-actor bids for Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, who play Liberace and his lover Scott Thorson. Douglas and Damon are also set to serve as presenters at the Sept. 22 Emmy ceremony.


John's first studio album in seven years, "The Diving Board," is set for release on Sept. 24.


Neil Patrick Harris is hosting the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre, broadcast live on CBS.
