On Sunday night, Elton John made his first-ever appearance on the Primetime Emmy Awards with a performance tribute to Liberace.

The late legendary singer's HBO biopic, Behind the Candelabra, received 15 Emmy nominations this year, including two for the film's two main stars. The movie's stars, Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, presented John to the stage.

On the red carpet Sunday, E! host Ryan Seacrest asked Douglas what was the most interesting part about playing Liberace on screen.

"He was so joyful. He loved life he loved beautiful things. He was so generous," the actor replied. "It freed me up. I had a whole cancer battle and to do this afterwards, I just inherited that general feeling."

Douglas received his fifth Emmy nomination this year.

Speaking to The Australian, Elton revealed that he would perform his new single Home Again as part of his appearance. The song is about a feeling of "being at peace." Emmy host Neil Patrick Harris said of the planned tribute: "We have a performance by Elton John who has never performed at the Emmys before. He's doing a number from his new album, which is amazing."

The How I Met Your Mother star hosted the 65th annual awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday for the second time.

James Gandolfini and Cory Monteith were honored during the show. The list of Emmy presenters included Will Arnett, Alec Baldwin, Andre Braugher, Diahann Carroll, Bryan Cranston, Claire Danes, Emily Deschanel, Zooey Deschanel, Anna Faris, Heidi Klum, Queen Latifah, Jon Hamm, Tina Fey, Allison Janney, Jimmy Kimmel, Margo Martindale, Sofia Vergara, and Kerry Washington.
