Elton and Taron, sitting in a tree, S. I. N. G. I. N. G! Well OK, they’re actually on a stage, and only one of them is sitting, but semantics – Elton John and Taron Egerton have performed together.
Egerton, of course, plays Elton in the upcoming musical fantasy biopic Rocketman, and does his own singing in it. If you still had any doubts as to his ability to belt one out, this take on Tiny Dancer, with Elton tinkling the ivories, should dispel them.
The allegedly impromptu performance happened during the auction portion of Elton’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party, when Taron offered an off-the-cuff performance and Elton just happened to volunteer to play it with him.
Rocketman is set to hit Australian cinemas on May 30. Check out the full trailer here.
