On Thursday, Elton John paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II during his final performance in Toronto. 

Elton John said he was inspired by Queen Elizabeth II and is sad that she is gone.

John said from my early years till now, Queen has played an important role in my life, and i will really miss her.

John remarked, She led the nation through some of our greatest and worst days with elegance, decency, and real caring.

Elton John said I’m glad she’s at peace, she deserves it. She worked incredibly hard.

In 1998, a year after the passing of John's friend Princess Diana, the queen knighted him.

At the age of 96, the queen passed away on Thursday at her summer home in Scotland.

The musician then sang "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," from 1974 on Thursday 2022.
