Elton admits he was nervous before the Billy Elliot preview Thursday night.

But so far, the $9.5 million stage adaptation of the hit movie has been garnering praise, according to Contactmusic.com.

There was a 10-minute standing ovation at London's Victoria Palace Theatre. So it looks promising for the public opening on May 12.
