According to Billboard.com, John described the inaugural award as "a tremendous honor and a real thrill" to have his life and work recognized.

"I'm really looking forward to participating in what promises to be a very special occasion," he said.

John, who canceled his European tour because of appendicitis, is expected to play some of his biggest hits.

Fingers crossed that he performs Tiny Dancer.
