Carrie Underwood will perform during a special tribute on the 65th Annual Emmy Awards, slated for this Sunday, Sept. 22, beginning at 8 p.m. ET on CBS Television Network.
The 65th Emmy® Awards will honor the 50th anniversary of 1963 television milestones by featuring a special tribute by six-time Emmy nominee Don Cheadle and a performance by Underwood. Cheadle will present a tribute to television’s role in the assassination coverage of President John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963 and then connect that event to the performance of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show merely 80 days later on Feb. 9, 1964. Both of these historic events are often mentioned together as two of the most significant television moments in history, and the segment on the Emmy telecast will explore the tie between them.
Following Cheadle’s presentation, Underwood will honor the music of the era with a special performance.
