Elton John’s Oscar party is the stuff of legends… and has raised millions of dollars for the Elton John Aids Foundation. Just before the Oscars, Hollywood never knows where or when Elton John will pop up in advance of his big bash. On Saturday the Sunset Strip was closed down, a stage was quickly assembled and Sir Elton John performed for a thrilled audience, going one step further and introducing Lady Gaga to join him on ‘Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me’. Why can’t things like this happen in Ottawa? Oh wait, it’s minus 15 with the windchill. That’s probably why.
