It could not have been easy to sing alongside such a legend, but Egerton absolutely held his own. His strong vocals mesmerized the audience while the singer himself helped make things more melodic by playing the piano.

Then, when it came time for the chorus, Elton John combined his voice with the 29-year-old star's.

This surprise performance was very much enjoyed by those in attendance. It was even more of a thrill considering the fact that 'Rocketman' will be released in a few months.

According to Ultimate Classic Rock, the movie tells the story of Elton John's breakthrough years and Egerton will be playing the role of the singer.

The movie trailer was recently released as well, and we have to say that getting a glimpse of Egerton's commitment to the role makes us eager to watch it. The actor did a fantastic job: He nailing young Elton's accent, his mannerisms, and even his look.

Plus, Egerton also dazzled in some of John's flamboyant fashion and stage costumes of the 1970s and 80s.

Considering that Rami Malek, who played Freddie Mercury in 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' took home an Academy Award for his role, there is a good chance that Egerton may get an award for portraying John, too.
