Kesha, Miley Cyrus, Maren Morris, John Legend and more will pay tribute to the legendary Elton John next month. Today (December 15), CBS revealed the “Piano Man” singer is the star of their annual Grammy special, and he will be honored with a series of performances at Madison Square Garden on January 30. Titled Elton John: I’m Still Standing – A Grammy Salute, the event will highlight his iconic discography and lengthy career.
“Sir Elton John is an international music legend who has captivated audiences across generations for more than five decades,” Neil Portnow, President of the Recording Academy said in a statement. “His creativity, dynamic presence and melodic virtuosity have positioned him as a cultural icon, and the Recording Academy is pleased to honor his immeasurable contributions to the music community.”
With appearances from some of the year’s biggest names, the evening is already shaping up to be a star-studded event. More performers will be announced as the day looms closer. The Bee Gees were the inspiration for the last tribute, which featured performances from the likes fo Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas and Ed Sheeran. The Tell Me You Love Me siren joined a slew of hitmakers to perform a medley during the Grammy awards in February as a teaser before the show aired the following month. Hopefully we will receive a similarly incredible teaser this year.
