Ain’t no party like a Sir Elton John party, because a legend like him don’t stop!

After admiring the performances of multiple artists taking on his own iconic songs throughout the night, John hit the stage for his own hurrah by playing “I’m Still Standing” during a GRAMMYs salute television program honoring him and his songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin. But the singer didn’t finish it all off alone—he brought up a number of the featured guests to sing alongside him while dancing to the funky beat.

Miley Cyrus got really into the groove by mouthing the words to John’s vocals, while Sam Smith and Kesha both swayed along to the rocking rhythm of it all. Pretty much everyone up as the featured guests clapped along when John completely shattered his piano playing throughout “I’m Still Standing.”

Proving that John will forever be known as one of the most remarkable songwriters and lively acts within the entertainment industry, he made clear of that title by sparkling brighter than the rest in his musical skills and bedazzled ensemble.
