“The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize For Popular Song to ELTON JOHN & BERNIE TAUPIN”
Description: On Wednesday the 20th of March 2024 Elton John and Bernie Taupin, one of the great songwriting duos of all time, are the 2024 recipients of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. John and Taupin were honored with a tribute concert. It’s air date was 8th of April 2024.

The event took place at The DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, a grateful nation salutes the legendary composing team of Elton John and Bernie Taupin with the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.
With performances by Garth Brooks, Brandi Carlile, Annie Lennox, Jacob Lusk of Gabriels, Metallica, Joni Mitchell, Maren Morris, Charlie Puth with special appearances by Emilio and Gloria Estefan, Carole King, Sir Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder. Special performances by Elton John and Bernie Taupin and hosted by Billy Porter!

This is the only third writing team — and only the second and third Brits — to receive the honor from the Library of Congress, the acclaimed duo brought a diversity of artists to the stage. Joining the serenade were 2020 Gershwin Prize honoree Garth Brooks, Brandi Carlile, Annie Lennox, Metallica, Maren Morris, Billy Porter, Charlie Puth and Jacob Lusk of Gabriels. 2023 honoree Joni Mitchell turned “I’m Still Standing” into a simmering jazz number. All but Metallica were backed by John’s own band.

What united the performers were their musical chops and their sheer, unabashed delight to be feting two of their musical heroes. It was a joy matched only by John and Taupin, seated front and center with their families, who could be seen grooving along, hands in the air. John took a seat at the piano toward the end of the evening to gift the crowd with a trio of songs: “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters,” “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” and closer “Your Song,” performed as Taupin stood piano-side.
