Matthew Perry was honored during a very emotional In Memoriam at the 2024 Emmys.
On Monday night, stars gathered in Los Angeles to honor the best in television — and, of course, pay tribute to the fallen stars of the industry. In a heartfelt performance by Charlie Puth and The War and Treaty, they sang a moving rendition of See You Again before transitioning into the Friends theme song, I’ll Be There For You.
It was in this final segment that some of the biggest names were recognized, including Kirstie Alley, Andre Braugher, and Barbara Walters, with the 17 Again star himself coming in last, earning an emotional round of cheers from the audience.
