Rocketman: Watch Taron Egerton Belt Out 'Tiny Dancer'

Rocketman star Taron Egerton has pulled off his look, but can he sing like Elton John?

If the latest snippet is anything to go by, that would be a…. well, yeah.

The clip for the upcoming biopic features Egerton singing John's three-times platinum 1972 hit "Tiny Dancer."

Producer Giles Martin, who’s also the son of Beatles producer George Martin, said that even the big man himself was already a fan.

"Elton said, 'I don't think I've ever heard anyone sing my songs better than Taron,'" he said.

"The great thing about Elton is, he wants Taron's interpretations of his songs.”

Martin said that he didn’t think there was anyone else would could play Elton.

"It's Taron's role."
