Taylor Swift is probably my best friend. I drink too much coffee, but so do you... Weird, Wild & Free.

This is just heartbreaking; Elton John has broken down while giving a tribute to his good friend George Michael at his Vegas show.

Losing a close friend isn’t easy and we can’t even imagine what it would be like to go through that healing process in front of the whole world.

Today, Elton opened his Las Vegas show with a performance of his song, Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me.

Both George and Elton sang the song together in a live cover version in 1990, which reached number one in both the U.K. and the U.S.

While the 69-year-old was singing, he had a picture of his late friend on the screen behind him.

The Daily Mail has reported that he was brought to tears and told audience, "I only wish George was here to sing it with me."

An eyewitness also told the outlet, "After he sang for George, he turned his back on the audience and was shaking and looked like he was crying… He received a standing ovation and had to be consoled by a band member before beginning the rest of the show. There wasn't a dry eye in the house."

This just breaks our hearts, our thoughts continue to go out to George’s family and friends.
