Sir Elton John wasn't going to let his annual Oscars viewing party be shaken by the global pandemic.
Continuing his yearly tradition, the 73-year-old singer held the 29th Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards celebration virtually this year, instead of at its usual venue in West Hollywood.
But it was his duet with pop star Dua Lipa that was the talk of the night.
Accompanied by a choir and a violinist, the pair harmonised perfectly together as they belted out the Rocket Man's hit song 'Bennie and the Jets,' while John played the piano.
Even as a virtual event, the gala raised $3 million for John's AIDS foundation.
