Country singer Carrie Underwood has been chosen to perform in tribute to The Beatles at the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. The now-legendary English rock band made their American television debut in early 1964 on The Ed Sullivan Show. Not long afterwards, the famous epidemic “Beatlemania” swept the nation as their fan base grew. Underwood will sing a medley of music that defined the era. The Emmys will also be paying tribute to notable events in television in the year 1963--including the nationwide coverage of the President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, the FCC’s approval of the remote control for use in the home, and network newscasts expanding from 15 minutes of air time to half an hour. According to CBS News, six-time Emmy nominee Don Cheadle will present the special segment. He’s nominated for another Emmy this year, for lead actor in a comedy. Ken Uhrlich, executive producer of the Awards, released a statement regarding the tribute: “To have an opportunity to look back at a time that represented television's finest hour in a program that celebrates so many of this year's achievements is what makes the Emmys special. We are certain that viewers will enjoy this special tribute.” E! Online reports that Elton John is also scheduled to perform at the Awards. He’ll be singing his latest single in honor of the late pianist/vocalist Liberace and the HBO film created about his life, Behind the Candelabra. The Emmys air from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles this Sunday, September 22 on CBS at 8 PM EST, hosted by actor Neil Patrick Harris.
