Elton John became the second artist to receive the iHeartRadio Icons Award during our iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles last night. The music legend received the honor for his 50+ year career.
Chris Martin delivered a big intro to present Elton John with the 2021 iHeartRadio Icon Award.
Martin joked that he “didn’t know anything about Elton,” he then praised songs by Billy Joel and Stevie Wonder and gushed over Elton’s guitar playing and movie career.
Afterwards, Demi Lovato Brandi Carlile, and H.E.R joined forces to pay tribute to the living legend with a medley of Elton’s classics, including “Bennie and the Jets,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” and “I’m Still Standing.”
It was one big night for the legendary Elton John.
