Sara Bareilles to perform during In Memoriam segment

Billy Crystal will pay tribute to the late Robin Williams at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Crystal had a longstanding friendship with Williams, who died Aug. 11 at 63; the two actors co-starred in Ivan Reitman's 1997 comedy Father's Day. Following Williams' death, Crystal wrote a brief message on Twitter. His Emmy tribute would be the first time he'd be speaking at length about his friend since his passing.

Sara Bareilles will be the performer during the In Memoriam segment.

Executive producer Don Mischer made the announcements Wednesday during the red-carpet rollout in downtown L.A.

Previously announced presenters include Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Halle Berry, Bryan Cranston, Viola Davis, Gwen Stefani, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Woody Harrelson, Julianna Margulies, Matthew McConaughey, Jim Parsons, Amy Poehler, Julia Roberts and Kerry Washington.

The Emmys will air live on both coasts on Monday, Aug. 25, from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live beginning at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on NBC.
