Lady Gaga Pre-Tapes “Your Song” for Elton John Special, May Be Included in Album of Elton Cover Songs


Lady Gaga couldn’t stick around in New York for the taping of tonight’s Elton John: I’m Still Standing TV special. She’s on stage tomorrow night in Birmingham, UK. So she did the next best thing: she pre-taped “Younr Song” to be dropped into the special.

Tonight’s guests include John Legend, Miranda Lambert, Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, Alessia Cara, and a bunch of stars who are still in town following the Grammys. They’ll each do an Elton song and of course, Elton himself will hit the piano keys at some point. The show airs April 10th on CBS.

I’m told Miley will not again be singing “Tiny Dancer” as she did with Elton on the Grammys. Instead, she’ll perform “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me,” which she’s also singing for an Elton covers album coming this spring. Other artists on the covers album include the aforementioned Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran and Florence and the Machine.
