NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Elton John and Taron Egerton performed a duet at the after party in Cannes France on Thursday (May 16) following the Cannes Film Festival "Rocketman" premiere.

Egerton plays a young Elton John in the days when he still went by the name Reginald Dwight and the film follows his journey from piano-playing dreamer in an unexciting London suburb to stadium-filling superstar.

The cast also includes Jamie Bell as John's long-term lyricist Bernie Taupin and Richard Madden as his first manager
