Good lord I love Elton so much. I saw him live in Vancouver last month. I was not worthy. He is such a down to earth raw performer. I just can’t. I’m so glad I grew up with him and not with somebody like cardi B and post Malone. Man. Elton the real definition of a rockstar. Nothing can ever compare to it.

I would love to meet Sir Elton! Just to sit down and Listen to stories, songs and just watch him and his husband play with the kids! 😊😊😊😊

Corden can actually sing and he does surprise people sometimes…Like Elton here and Adele…it was great to see. He's so lucky he can do this

Okay after seeing Rocketman, my appreciation for this man. If I could meet Elton John I would give him a huge hug and then I would ask him to play Rocketman and tiny dancer

WAIT HE LIVES IN ATLANTA BRO.

I feel like Elton John is the sort of iconic performer that looks at James and thinks "Don't you actually dare to try to out sing me". The attitude is in the look…..

Im a little late but seeing elton dancing is the highlight of my day. Elton is so fricken cute I love him so much❤❤❤

The guy in the passenger seat, he isn't half bad. If he had a few singing lessons he could maybe even do it professionally — anything is possible

This year for Halloween I dressed up as Elton John. When my friends asked what I was wearing Halloween I said I was being Elton John. My friend said "Who's Elton John?" I stand in silence then just say " the greatest pop/rock singer in the whole fucking world. Now get a life." I just walked away. My friend taddled on me and I was sent to the principles office 🤪 WORTH IT! 🤪

I get he's a fan and all, but honestly I could hear more James than Elton John and that sucks! Also no Benie and the Jets or Rocket Man, time for a do-over?

I totally agree!!! I wish Freddie was still around to be able to do one, I'd love to be able to see Clapton and George Harrison also!

Elton is so used to playing the piano while singing these he doesn’t seem to know what to do with his hands! 😂😂

james always does the thing where he puts his hands out like he’s holding something and slowly lowers them down and back up i love this

I absolutely love it when you can tell James is so honoured to be in the car with someone, and this is up there with the most obvious. Legend

While watching this I sang every song that came on! I love Elton John so much, I would do anything to meet him!❤️

Didn't know Elton had (passed tense) Cancer. Heard about that in the serialisation of his new autobiography on Radio 4!

Pissing down outside – (English humour) Elton "Nice day!" James – "Yeah, it's like we are at home!"

Start singingJames – "I'm not one of those…" Elton "I know you're not!" Not only do we give the world songs to sing, we make it laugh too! Go GB!

attention people ! elton don't own a phone ! We can kidnap him ! but look carefully there is a black car in front them all the time

Just imagine, you’re driving down the street. You stop at a red lightstick and you just see Elton and James singing……I’d cry

Elton John is a musical god. He is the only artist i have seen walk out on a stage and perform song after song and the only time he stopped was to take a drink of water between songs.
