Charlie Puth, The War And Treaty Perform ‘Friends’ Theme During Emmys

Charlie Puth and acclaimed duo The War and Treaty performed the “Friends” theme song and Puth’s 2015 Wiz Khalifa collab “See You Again” during Monday night’s 75th Primetime Emmy Awards’ In Memoriam segment.

The segment finished with recently deceased “Friends” cast member Matthew Perry being featured as the final name in the video tribute.

The “In Memoriam” began with “All In The Family” stars Rob Reiner and Sally Struthers paying tribute to that program’s legendary writer, Norman Lear, and other notable television stars who passed away in the past year.

“To all of the members of all of our television families who have passed on, ‘Those were the days,'” Struthers said, referencing the “All in the Family” theme song.

Lear died on December 5 at the age of 101. Perry died from the effects of ketamine after being found unresponsive in the hot tub of his Los Angeles home. He was 54.

The segment featured several performers who passed, including Andre Braugher, Barbara Walters, Harry Belafonte, Alan Arkin, Richard Roundtree, Bob Barker, Treat Williams, Lance Reddick, Suzanne Somers, Leslie Jordan, Paul Reubens, Cindy Williams, Kirstie Alley, John Beasley, and others.

“See You Again,” which was featured in the film Furious 7, was designed by Puth as a tribute to the late Paul Walker, who died in 2013. The song earned 12 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
