The real Elton John and the actor who portrays Elton John have joined forces.
While most of the attention was on the 2019 Oscars last night, Elton John made sure to start the buzz for his own fantasy musical.
Taron Egerton, starring as John in the upcoming Rocketman, performed “Tiny Dancer” alongside John at Elton’s annual Academy Awards party benefitting his AIDS foundation.
The duet was reportedly spontaneous.
Watch the footage below:
Rocketman opens in theatres this May.
The film will also star Jamie Bell as Bernie Taupin, Bryce Dallas Howard as John’s mom, and Richard Madden as his manager. Dexter Fletcher serves as director.
