Elton and Sting helped raise funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation last night.

They both entertained at the annual Hot Pink Party at the Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan.

During the show, Sting thrilled ladies in the crowd by inviting them up onto the stage to dance with him. Elton, who sang Your Song, Tiny Dancer and I Guess That's Why they Call It The Blues, got into the spirit of the evening (as seen below) by wearing a pair of hot pink plastic spectacles. Elizabeth Hurley was the emcee.

The event raised more than $4 million (£2.5 million).
