Elton had an autocue hidden in a flower arrangement on stage while playing a private birthday party in Monaco.

A partygoer reported spotting the first line of Your Song at the Hotel de Paris gig on a teleprompter, although the ballad has been performed hundreds of times since its release in 1970.

A representative for the rocker insisted the autocue was only used to remind Elton of the running order of the show.

And Brian Larter, Managing Director for the autocue firm, Autoscript UK, said ''everyone,'' including Paul McCartney, uses it.
