He's a legendary performer, and tonight he'll be joined by a TON of star power as CBS TV will air a tribute concert to the Rocket Man himself. We've rounded up a few previews of the show, and it is safe to say that there will be some EPIC performances during the telecast. 

SZA and Shawn Mendes will perform "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" during the telecast: 

Country music's Little Big Town will perform a powerful cover of "Rocket Man"," and we're quite excited to see it: 

Ed Sheeran has the daunting task of covering the iconic track, "Candle In the Wind," during tonight's show, but he says it wasn't that nerve wracking to perform the song in front of the legend himself:

We also have a preview of Kesha performing "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" ahead of tonight's program. "That was insane, having Elton John just watch me perform one of his most famous songs ever," Kesha said.
