Get ready for Carrie Underwood at the Emmys.
The country hit maker is going to perform during Sunday's big show to honor the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on Nov 22, 1963 and The Beatles' legendary performance on The Ed Sullivan Show just 80 days on after the president was killed.
Don Cheadle will introduce what has shaped up to be a very moving segment.
"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," executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement. "We are certain that viewers will enjoy this special tribute."
