Latest Elton John News:
We are excited to reveal the Elton John: The Cut shortlist for ‘Bennie and the Jets’, which was selected by Parris Goebel. Discover the reason Parris chose these video treatments below.
“I just love this one. He has such a great energy and passion. The concept itself was also really different and unlike any of the other ones I saw. The idea of creating a world where Elton John has been banned is so cool and I think could work really well for this song.”
“I just love the sexy, risqué vibe of this. The visual references she uses are captivating and not what I have in my own head when I listened to the song, which I love.”
“I love the ending for this one. It would be really surprising and powerful — feels really relevant for our times. They also seem very confident they can pull it off, which is always a good thing when you’re really trusting someone to turn the vision they have in their head into a reality.”
“I really like how professional and well thought-out this treatment is. You can tell he put a lot of time and energy into thinking through the most important aspects of the video — from location, to choreography and styling. I also love the idea of introducing a new form of dance with “Lindy Hip Hop.” From the little pieces I saw in the video, I think that could be really cool.”
Jack Whiteley & Laura Brownhill
“I love their idea for the setting of this one and the idea of a revolving carousel stage. I think that could be really cool and mesmerizing — the perfect backdrop for dance. I can just see the synchronized, flipbook style choreography in my mind — it feels like it goes perfectly with the song. I looked into some Laura’s choreography work from the past and I think she’d be able to do a really great job with this.”

I don't Know if this is the real you,But if it is. Wow! If I Was 16 years old or even born when you first came around, I would have had all of your records and albums as a collection. And dam would I die with them. Sure would. Nobody has gave my a great day like your music. I make music like this but you are words and reasons that can't be described in many Benevolent Ways.Pure is the Whimsical Musical Blue Birds That Sing while Heavens Earth Is As sky's of blue with a calm world as no worry brings us rotten to the core. By Displaying this right now on Air. The radio and world can hear the songs of real truth.real honesty of helping one another and songs about everything being ok. The world is short so let's get along with each other and listen to our God. We have right now to change the world in any way but music controls the world around around us. If you have the mind set to do your thing. Go for it and watch your intelligence work like a charm with a partner that show unconditional love and you have a nice job. Trust me things will bet better. It takes time. Patience and actions to concur all your fear and following your dreams and making them come true. Your going to have your own life people so you will have your own friends. I don't have a lot of companions as it is right now as we speak but we all are going to look back 30 years later and say.Wow I realized that I don't care why people think of me because I'm not ashamed to feel happiness inside from the throat,heart and threw out my life. I put my life out on the line just for the world. Yeah. Your going to be like-Um fresh as a lemonade and I feel confident within myself and life to me feels like magic with all my power. Elton John. Your a legend that lives on. Still at a young 68Years old it so I think. I never should have thought that you would take all you got with taking pride upon your career. It's the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen in my life. God bless you. Your talent brings tears to my eyes as well. Things song sometimes makes me cry. It reminds me of so many things as I think of the past. All the history I that i have lived threw. Even through I'm almost 17 years old. It is still a charm for me and I lived quite awhile. The music is good. I love music. I hope I get to Shake your hand one day and Talk with you for hours. You are an amazing man. Whatever triggered into doing something so Magnificent and incredible still shocks me with baffled excitement. Elton John.Deep Down in my heart I have much love to you. Much respect. Much gratitude That there is still someone like you around that never fades away. God and I know your a very special kind hearted individual. Let the good times roll! Let the good times roll! You Can blow 97 Billion of Gods Humans Away by your brilliant mind. Never Die Young or old, never die period!!! 😀 good day!!
