Rocketman star Taron Egerton joined the real-life Elton John at the singer's latest show in Hove last night (June 9).
Wearing a rainbow T-shirt, Taron stood at the front of the stage while Elton joined on piano and backing vocals.
The performance is the first time anyone has made a special guest appearance during Elton's tour, which kicked off last September.
Watch a clip of the performance below:
What a show in Brighton just now at @SussexCCC ❤️ @TaronEgerton, thank you for joining me onstage tonight. We've shared so many moments during the filming and release of #Rocketman and singing 'Your Song' with you this evening is another I'll always cherish.— Elton John (@eltonofficial) June 9, 2019

Taron's appearance follows a similar show at London's O2 last week, when he gave a surprise performance of 'Your Song' during Hugh Jackman's UK show.
After the show, Elton wrote on Twitter: “Taron Egerton, thank you for joining me onstage tonight. We’ve shared so many moments during the filming and release of Rocketman and singing ‘Your Song’ with you this evening is another I’ll always cherish.”
Taron currently stars as Sir Elton in the musical biopic Rocketman, which charts the singer's early life and career.
