Is Taron Egerton Really Singing in Rocketman?

Rocketman: Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John, but Is He Actually Singing?

Taron Egerton as Elton John in Rocketman from Paramount Pictures.

We've been anxiously awaiting Taron Egerton's foray into musical film as Elton John in Rocketman, and the first question that jumped out when we watched the first trailer is, of course, is Egerton actually singing?

In short, the answer is yes! Egerton does his own singing in Rocketman. He spent a long time recording John's music and trying to get it all right, according to The Hollywood Reporter. John's husband, David Furnish, even told the publication that John told Egerton that whatever he does, he shouldn't try to copy him. "Don't think you have to sing it exactly the way that I sang it. Don't think you have to perform it the way I performed it," Furnish said of John's advice to Egerton.

Egerton also told Collider back in May that he had every intention of always singing on set while filming the movie, and we are hoping he stuck with that and we'll find more out about it at some point. But for the actual movie, full of glitz, glam, and the Rocket Man, we'll have to wait until May 2019 for the release. It's then that we'll finally see Egerton as John, in this film Egerton calls a fantasy musical of John's life as an artistic prodigy.
