For nearly two decades, Sir Elton John‘s annual Oscar bash has raised millions of dollars in support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. And at Sunday night’s (February 27) auction at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, one lucky winner bid $75,000 to pick up two VIP passes to John’s forthcoming stint on Saturday Night Live.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the Grammy-winning entertainer will appear on the long-running comedy show on April 2. John, who first performed on SNL in 1982, will team up with American singer/songwriter Leon Russell to sing select tunes from their 2010 collaboration, The Union. We’re likely to get a quality dose of English humor, too, with John serving as host.
