Elton John is celebrating the 300th episode of his show, “Rocket Hour.” The British legend says the show has kept him up to date on new music and artists who he says “blew his mind.”
John cites Billie Eilish, Lorde, Dua Lipa, and Channel Tres as artists he’s been intrigued by. “When I first heard the first thing I ever heard from Lorde, which was ‘Royals,’ I just thought it was unlike anything I’d ever heard before,” John said of Lorde.
The “Rocket Man” singer says it’s the same thing with Billie Eilish. In 2019 Elton praised the “Bad Guy” singer saying, “talent like hers doesn’t come along very often.”
Dua Lipa and Channel Tres sent congratulations to Elton on his 300th episode. Lipa recalled when Elton played her hit “Levitating” on “Rocket Hour” saying she “lost her mind” when she heard it.
