Elton John Zooms With Dua Lipa, Stevie Wonder, Miley Cyrus + More: Look + Listen

Elton John conducted “Ultimate Zoom,” a whimsical virtual gathering of every collaborator from The Lockdown Sessions, his quarantine album that dropped earlier this year.

Sir Elton kicked off the online meeting as the screen fills up with some of the biggest names in music – incuding Lil Nas XDua LipaMiley Cyrus, Young Thug, and Stevie Nicks to Brandi Carlile, Charlie Puth, SG Lewis, Eddie Vedder, Stevie Wonder, and more – each of whom took turns praising the elder UK musician and passing along congratulations on the new full length.

The eccentric collection of artists made for an amusing meet-n-greet complete with the now-classic run-ins with foggy camera quality, speaking while muted, too-loud air conditioners and interrupting house guests as an off-camera Young Thug exclaims: “Yo, Elton, my Wi-Fi’s not working — can you see me?”

Missing from the visual call was The Lockdown Sessions‘ opening collaborator Ed Sheeran, who appeared with John on “Merry Christmas.” And after everyone’s hit the “Leave Meeting” button leaving John alone, Sheeran rushes into the room to ask if he’s missed it as the playfully annoyed singer reminds him: “It’s supposed to be on Zoom.”

The lighthearted Zoom meeting follows the release of the three-part Inside The Lockdown Sessions documentary, which goes behind the scenes of the record’s year-long creation process.
