Elton John celebrated Christmas with a lengthy Instagram video discussing what a fantastic year 2019 has been to him, and thanking his fans for their support.
He has performed a Farewell tour, had a biopic written about his life, and won a prestigious award.
And if you didn’t know about it all – he is here to fill you in.
In his trademark tracksuit and glasses, Elton, 72, beams in the video while wearing an adorable Santa hat.
“Merry Christmas everybody, and thank you for making 2019 probably the most successful year of my career”, he said.
“Wow, at 72 years of age, I’m blown away.
“First of all you have all supported the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour so well it is breaking box office records everywhere, thank you.
“Rocketman came out in the spring and got incredible reviews, and did incredibly well, Thank you.
“Me, my autobiography came out in the autumn and did incredibly well, thank you.
“And if that wasn’t enough to make you question your own success of 2019, I was named in Billboard the number one male artist of all time, which I cannot believe, thank you Billboard for that. Wow.
“And in the middle of the year I got the Legion d’Honneur in Paris from President Macron, which is the highest honour you can get artistically in France, I was blown away.
“Thank you President Macron, and the French people.
“But to you guys who are my fans, you’ve been amazing all year.
“You have come to the show you have dressed up, you’ve come along and had a great time and you’ve made me feel so happy every time I come on stage.
“I’m having a little break right now over Christmas, hence the hat, but I’m off to the Golden Globes on the 5 January, where we’re nominated for three awards for Rocketman, so keep your fingers very tightly crossed and hope that we can come away with at least one award.
“And then I come back to Australia and back to work, onwards and upwards with the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.
“I hope I come to a place near you in 2020, where we can continue the fun and games. Love you all so much, bye!”
His famous friends commented to wish him happy Christmas, including Victoria Beckham, who are firm family friends and holidayed with the superstar earlier this year on his yacht.
