Although Elton didn't perform any of his own material at the most recent Grammy Awards, Juanes introduced Frank Ocean with a short rendition of Your Song.

 

In fact, the Colombian rocker has been so inspired by performing the songs of his idols at two Grammy events that he plans to include a few English tracks on his new album.


"Now I can sing in English easier than before," he said backstage after performing a bilingual version of Elton's Your Song. "Probably I'm going to do some tracks. Maybe four."

Juanes also performed Bruce Springsteen's Hungry Heart at Grammy's MusiCares show saluting the New Jersey native.

"It was such a great opportunity for me," he declared. "I just met Elton John tonight. I met Bruce last year. ... They are an inspiration to me. I grew up listening to all this music when I was a teenager, and now I understand them a lot more so I love them even more."
