Happy Birthday Elton! makes a fine 60th celebration for the Rocket Man
Broadcasted on MyNetworkTV on April 5, this 60th birthday celebration for Sir Elton John was a mostly enjoyable concert special that showcased some of his best hits from the last nearly 40 years from "I'm Still Standing" to "How Wonderful Life Feels". When Robin Williams introduces him, he amusingly says Elton made "Liberace look Amish!" You also see plenty of British and American celebrities say their own tributes on air. I loved the animated one contributed by Bette Midler. Near the end are stills of John in some of his most outrageous outfits including his famous Donald Duck suit. Many celebrities were in the audience including a stunning appearance of Anne Hathaway. Also stunning: Lily Allen in the tribute comments section. Happy belated birthday, Sir Elton! Hope you have many more as enjoyable as this! P.S. John's longtime songwriting partner Bernie Taupin also wishes Sir Elton Happy Birthday on stage and appears on the tributes.
