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, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 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.

The HBO film, Behind the Candelabra, which takes a look at the last ten years of Liberace’s life and the secret affair he had with Scott Thorson, is nominated for 15 Emmys this year including nods for its director, Steven Soderbergh and two stars, Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.

John’s performance on the awards show comes two months after he was forced to cancel his tour due to appendicitis.

His upcoming album, The Diving Board, produced by T Bone Burnett, comes out September 24. The singer recently released the video for the album’s first single, “Home Again.” Watch the clip below.
