Elton John and Taron Egerton, who is playing Elton John in the movie Rocketman, performed a rendition of John’s iconic hit “Rocket Man” at the Cannes gala party Thursday night.
(Yes, the song title is two words. Yes, the movie title is one word. Yes, it’s confusing.)
With John on the keys and both on vocals, it’s a nice moment between the two and shows the respect that Egerton has for John and John has for Egerton.
Rocketman shoots into theaters May 31.
