During the annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, the legendary musician and Taron Egerton, the actor who portrays Elton John in the upcoming biopic entitled Rocketman performed a beautiful version of his iconic ballad “Tiny Dancer” together. Egerton expertly handled the vocals, sounding much like Elton John himself. The duet was completely unplanned but came together gorgeously.
Following a short preview of the trailer and a trip to the London premiere on the block, the audience was taken by surprise when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of ‘Tiny Dancer’, and Sir Elton John volunteering from the audience to accompany him on the piano. Guests were brought to their feet as they watched Elton John take his position on the keys while Taron belted out the lyrics to one of his most beloved ballads.
Here’s the original version of the song performed live in 1971.
