Elton John broke down in tears as he played an emotional tribute to late pal George Michael during his Las Vegas concert on Wednesday, and it's clear the music legend is still struggling to come to terms with the British pop star's untimely death.

The two superstars memorably sang the song together in a live cover version in 1990, which reached number one in both the United Kingdom and the U.S.
One fan in attendance told the paper that Elton, seemingly in tears, told the audience, "I only wish George was here to sing it with me".

"'I am in deep shock", he captioned the photo. I have lost a beloved friend - the kindest, most generous soul and a brilliant artist, ' wrote Elton on Instagram following the news of George's death. My heart goes out to his family and all of his fans.
