Carrie Underwood To Perform At Emmy Awards

Carrie Underwood will perform tonight at the 65th Emmy Awards. Underwood confirmed the news via Twitter earlier this week, saying "I am so amazingly excited to be performing at the Emmys on Sunday! Can't wait..."

The event will be a special tribute to year 1963, a year which saw the television milestones of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and the Beatles invasion of America.

Following six-time Emmy nominee Don Cheadle's special tribute to the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's death, Underwood will give a special performance to honor the music of the era.

It's not Underwood's only TV appearance on the night, as she'll also appear in the Sunday Night Football introduction on NBC.

The 65th Emmy Awards will air at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
