Really nice performance by Elton.

"Tiny Dancer"

Digging the heck out of his glasses.

And Miley Cyrus was a surprise. For once it wasn't about her and her craziness, rather she was dressed very fashionable and sang complementary to Elton.

Most excellent seeing Davey Johnstone on the doubleneck !

Some awfully sweet slide coming out of that guitar.

After that performance I changed the channel.

Could not relate to anything else on that show.

Dave’s has always been the exact right guitarist for that gig.

Elton and Miley's performance was the best of the night...tasteful and respectful.

^ Well it certainly wasn't going to be some moody, brooding vintage acoustic guitar strummer, now was it?

Looks like maybe Miley has growed up a bit and has decided to "shut up and sing".


Most of those other idiots could take a lesson.

That's always been the thing about her; she made it so easy to hate her because of her persona, but honestly, the kid can sing. Its sad, because without the schtick, and the famous dad, probably nobody would even know who she was.

If dialing back the "outrageous" nature of her personality and concentrating on singing is a career move she's making, I think she's heading in the right direction.

Not unless there was some auto-tuned moody brooding with a massive swirl of twerking choreography behind it.

What strikes me about EJ is how well his voice has held up over time, much more so than many of his contemporaries.

Wired cause I think the opposite about his voice , sounds like songs are in a lower key to me than they were originally in and if you watch recent clips he seems to struggle to hit notes. He also does a lot of what I call “talk singing” not really hitting the note.
I just watched a couple of concerts from the 70’s on you tube and his voice was way higher then.

Ive noticed that about his voice for several years now. Definately lower. His range was one of the things that set him apart vocally. I mean look at "Bennie and the Jets". He had incredible range then.

Well, yes, Bennie sounded lower than the recording we all know...I agree. Yet I still think, even in a lower key, the timbre and tone of his voice is still very pleasing and not raspy or showing its age.

Who here has actually heard, and listened to, any of the winning songs/artists etc? I have heard the name Bruno Mars but never heard any of his recordings.

Which is why I don't watch these shows any more. I can't relate.

He's the real deal, Gene. His radio stuff is too poppy for my taste, but the kids could be listening to far worse.

Here's an vintage inspired tune. His band is TIGHT!
