Taron Egerton covers Elton John's 'Tiny Dancer' in new Rocketman sneak peek

Elton John in costume

Egerton spoke about the responsibility of playing someone who is 'so beloved, ' revealing all they can do is, 'give our heartfelt interpretation of his life and his music'. There's another trailer out later this week to build the hype even more.

The scene features them meeting at a coffee shop for the first time, with John telling Taupin, 'I really like your lyrics, ' adding he could, 'see the whole tune in my head'.

Elton John's legendary catalog of music is in good hands with Taron Egerton.

There's a certain music biopic that came out past year, was a massive hit, and is in the middle of the awards race at the moment, and yet its star is simply lip syncing the songs made famous by the film's subject.

Hear the striking resemblance between Egerton's and Elton John's vocals on a new behind the scenes clip from the biopic. Today, we've been given a snippet of leading man Taron Egerton singing "Tiny Dancer", and it sounds just as great as we thought it would.
