Elton John Channels Liberace at the 2013 Emmys: Watch Here!

Frequently drawing comparisons to his flamboyant pianist predecessor, Elton John honored Liberace with a performance at the Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 22).

The “Tiny Dancer” singer played to celebrate the HBO biopic “Behind the Candelabra,” with its stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon taking part in the segment.

Performing for the first time at the Emmys, Elton told The Australian, “When you get to my age youve got to take whatever you can get. When youre 66, youre not on the radio, and the Emmys gives a massive audience for my album.

The Diving Board is his 30th solo album, with the singles “Home Again” and “Mexican Vacation (Kids in the Candlelight)” already released.
