Elton John and Bernie Taupin win original song Oscar

Elton John at 92nd Annual Academy Awards Show Los Angeles USA- 09 Feb 2020

Playing a red grand piano, the legendary musician took the stage in a purple suit as bright lights and a Rocketman-themed video show bathed the Dolby Theatre in vibrant colors.

It was a performance that showed range and depth far outside the realm of what we've come to expect from Eilish thus far in her young career, which is intriguing considering she and brother/producer Finneas O'Connell are working on the next James Bond theme song.

Elton John was already Oscar royalty.

"It's only fitting that Taupin and John should win for "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again" from "Rocketman", the movie largely about their 50-year collaboration. (John's other three nominated songs, including victor "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", were written with Tim Rice for The Lion King.) John and Taupin won their first award together at the Golden Globes earlier this year; as John reminded the audience, they've never won a Grammy as a duo in 52 years of collaboration.

The WHO said in recent days there had been "some stabilising" in the numbers of new cases of the coronavirus in China . But the United Nations agency cautioned it was too early to say if the virus had peaked.

"Elton John and Bernie Taupin's "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again", from "Rocketman".

It was also a historic evening, as the Korean film Parasite won Best Picture, making it the first foreign-language film to earn the coveted award, beating out potential winners 1917, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Irishman, Joker, Jojo Rabbit and others. "One key difference here is that Elton wrote "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again" with his longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin.

"[Rocketman] was one of the most emotional moments of my life, and to win this, it's my first time I've ever won an award with him!"

The award-winning artist will be hosting his annual AIDS fundraiser following the Oscars tonight. "I absolutely love Sam Fender. He's so talented", said John in a press release, per Billboard. "It's justification for 53 years of just hammering it out and doing what we do".
