Rock royalty Sir Elton John has commended actor Taron Egerton for his singing in the upcoming biopic Rocketman.

The two men discussed the film during "Elton John's Rocket Hour" on Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio.

Egerton plays John in the biopic, and also sings all the songs on the soundtrack.

"For those of you who don't know, in Rocketman I don't sing anything. Taron has recorded, re-recorded, all the songs that are in the movie, and sings them quite brilliantly," said John. "Did you find it difficult to sing them?," he asked Egerton.

"I think I would have found it harder if it wasn't for the fact that you were so encouraging," was Egerton's reply.

"I think that was a big part of what was an enabler and facilitated me to feel kind of relaxed enough to do them in the way that we have, and, of course, Giles Martin, who produced them, who is just the most incredible man. … I owe a lot of it to him, I think," the actor added.
