Elton John and actor Taron Egerton, who portrays John in the upcoming biopic “Rocketman,” joined together for a special duet of “Tiny Dancer” at John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Award viewing party on Sunday.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Egerton was about to perform the 1972 hit when he asked John to accompany him for a duet on stage. John agreed.
“It’s funny how life turns out, isn’t it?” Egerton tells the audience before launching into the song.
Egerton sings all of John’s songs in the film himself. His duet with John was his first ever live performance.
