Rocketman Performance

Elton John and Taron Egerton Preview “Rocketman” at Academy Awards Viewing Party

Fresh off wins for Bohemian Rhapsody, the Elton John biopic Rocketman wasted no time in making sure Academy voters and audience members knew about their upcoming musical film by having Elton John and Taron Egerton (who plays Elton in the film) duet on his classic song, “Tiny Dancer”.

There was no dubbing in sight as Egerton gamely took on the iconic song, accompanied by Elton on the piano. The audience in attendance was treated to a short preview of the trailer and a round of bidding on a trip to the London premiere before the performance, a heartwarming duet. See the whole performance below, and prepared to be charmed when Rocketman hits theaters on May 31.
