Elton John opened his Grammy performance in his classic style, sitting at the piano and wearing a bejeweled jacket and sunglasses.
After singing a verse of the song solo, Elton introduced his duet-partner Miley Cyrus to the stage. Miley was all smiles in a stunning fuschia gown as she joined the icon for the rest of the song.
These two were so adorable together it was almost too much to handle. Miley turned up the Southern twang in her accent for her share of the vocals, which worked perfectly for the whimsical ballad.
In addition to his performance with Miley at the Grammy awards, the Recording Academy is honoring the 50th anniversary of Elton John’s career with a tribute concert called “I’m Still Standing: A Grammy Salute” on Tuesday. Miley will also be performing at that show, in addition to Kesha, Miranda Lambert, John Legend, and others.
Elton recently announced that he’s retiring from music, confirming that his upcoming world tour will be his last. Hopefully this stunning performance will inspire Elton to collab on at least ONE single with Miley before he retires for good, because they are clearly a match made in music heaven.
