Elton John shares Grammy stage with young rockers
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Elton John still fills stadiums worldwide on his own, but he'll share the spotlight with a dozen other musicians at Sunday's Grammy Awards.
The 65-year-old entertainer rehearsed on Saturday alongside young Grammy nominees Mumford & Sons, Zac Brown, Ed Sheeran and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes.
John prepared for two performances: a rousing rendition of the Band's The Weight that also featured T. Bone Burnett and Mavis Staples, and a duet of Sheeran's single The A Team. "The fun of it for me is playing with other people," John said.
He also loves the Band's classic American sound.
