Cyrus And Colbert Consider Themselves to be Among Elton's Top Fans

Written by Chief Editor.

At last night's Grammy Awards, Elton and Miley Cyrus sang Tiny Dancer.

This wasn't the first time the 25-year-old did one of Elton's songs.

On Thursday night, Miley appeared on the The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to chat about her (then-upcoming) duet with the Rocket Man. She chose an Elton-themed look, sporting a jacket with the pop icon's face on the back, along with glasses bearing his name.

Stephen, who was in an Elton John cover band in high school, and his guest asked each other a bunch of EJ questions--and got all of the answers right.

The two then tackled one of the piano player's hits, Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting).

After her performance with Elton on Sunday, Miley posted a message on Instagram alongside a photograph of the pair on stage, writing: “Sir Elton John, I can’t thank you enough for giving me the honor of performing with you tonight at the Grammys!

 “I’ve loved every moment I’ve spent with you over the years & will cherish each second of your kindness …. let’s kick ass and keep fighting for an end to the AIDS epidemic! Everything you do inspires me to keep workin' hard and never giving up on all my dreams! Love you dearly!''
