The Rocket Man is currently touring Australia, and took some time during his radio show to praise some of the region's musical talent.

"I don't know what it is with Australia at the moment, but they keep producing the most fantastic music, and the artists keep getting younger and younger and younger," Elton said during the broadcast as he introduced a song by Alex The Astronaut. "Here's a girl called Alex The Astronaut, and it's called 'Not Worth Hiding.' The lyrics are fabulous... it's wonderful."

The 22 year-old singer-songwriter responded online with the following: "He's such an inspiring character and it's so amazing that he takes the time to listen to and support new artists. What a superstar."

Elton also played music from Angus & Julia Stone, Winston Surfshirt and the Babe Rainbow.
