Billy Crystal to Present Robin Williams Tribute at Emmys
Sara Bareilles — who recently dedicated her song “Hercules” to Williams — will perform during the In Memoriam
Billy Crystal will present a tribute to Robin Williams at Monday’s Emmy Awards, executive producer Don Mischer said Tuesday.
Sara Bareilles will handle the In Memoriam musical duties. Following Williams’ suicide, during a show at the Greek Theatre, Bareilles dedicated her song “Hercules” to his memory and family.
Last week, Mischer said that the 66th annual Emmy Awards will remember Williams with a “proper and meaningful remembrance.”

In addition to Mischer, also executive producing the awards show hosted by Seth Meyers are Glenn Weiss, Danette Herman, Keith Raywood, Bob Dickinson and Steve Jordan, along with Charlie Haykel and Juliane Hare.
