Country music superstar Carrie Underwood will perform a tribute at the Primetime Emmy Awards this Sunday.

The awards organization announced Wednesday that Underwood would perform a tribute honoring the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Actor Don Cheadle will present the tribute, honoring television broadcasters who covered the event. Cheadle and Underwood will also pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of The Beatles performing on The Ed Sullivan Show.

"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," Emmys executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement. "We are certain that viewers will enjoy this special tribute."

Following Cheadle's message, Underwood will sing a medley of songs from the '60s.

The tribute is one of many special segments that will be occurring at the Emmys this year. Enstars previously reported that there will be a special In Memoriam segment dedicated to actors Cory Monteith, James Gandolfini, Jean Stapleton, Jonathan Winters and producer David Goldberg.

It was also announced that Elton John would be performing a tribute to Liberace, the subject of HBO's critically lauded telefilm Behind the Candelabra, which is nominated for 15 Emmys this year.

Host Neil Patrick Harris revealed that there may be some magic in the telecast, saying recently that CBS was encouraging him to do so.

The 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air live at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
