Elton was featured on the music TV channel VH1 series TV Moments on September 22, 2002, at 9pm EST.

Elton has always had a flair for the visual. Witness the feather boas, crazy eyewear, powdered wigs and eleborate stages and venues.

He’s a singer with style and attitude-perfectly suited for TV. TV Moments: Elton John focussed on many memorable TV moments in the popular singer’s career, from his 1971 debut on American television on The Andy Williams Show to recent groundbreaking videos from the Songs From the West Coast album.

Elton’s TV moments show off the many sides of this talented performer including the dynamic performer who rocks Madison Square Garden, the gifted comedian who dropped in on The Muppet Show and the generous friend who paid tribute to a princess.

With the help of rare interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, TV Moments: Elton John took a second take at the remarkable 30-plus year career of one of the world’s most famous singer-songwriters.
