When I first saw actor Taron Egerton take the lead in the spy comedy film Kingsman: The Secret Service, never did I expect him to really make a mark in the industry as a singer — let along a singer who has become synonymous with Sir Elton John. And I don’t even mean in just one way, either. Over the course of the past few years, their careers have been crisscrossing quite a bit.
In addition to Elton John playing a surprisingly extensive role in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Egerton also belted out one of his songs in the animated musical Sing. It was only fitting that Egerton finally play the musical artist in biopic, and that’s exactly what he’ll be doing in the film Rocketman later this year. But if you can’t wait to see more John-Egerton goodness, fret not.
The duo recently performed the song “Tiny Dancer” together while at the AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, with Egerton covering lead vocals and John performing the piano and backup vocals. The pair is definitely having a great time doing it, and it’s hard not to at least smile while watching the video.
Rocketman hits theaters on May 31, 2019.
