Awards season is nigh! And that means live primetime performances by our most celebrated entertainers. Cue Elton John, who will work his magic at the Emmy awards for the first time ever with a tribute to Liberace. The HBO biopic Behind the Candelabra about Liberace's life is nominated for 15 Emmys. Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, who are both nominated for outstanding lead actor in a miniseries or movie for their portrayal of Liberace and his lover Scott Thorson, will also be presenting at the ceremony. John, 66, recently had surgery for an appendix abscess and had to postpone his European tour. But the singer, who acts as a mentor to Ed Sheeran, is set to release his first new album in seven years, called The Diving Board, on Sept. 24. The Emmys will come to CBS Sunday, Sept. 22, at 8/7c. Come back to PEOPLE.com for all the live coverage!
