LOS ANGELES (AP) — Elton John still fills stadiums worldwide on his own, but he’ll share the spotlight with a dozen other musicians at Sunday’s Grammy Awards.

COMPLETE COVERAGE: 55th Grammy Awards

The 65-year-old entertainer rehearsed Saturday at Staples Center alongside young Grammy nominees Mumford & Sons, Zac Brown, Ed Sheeran and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes.

John prepared for two performances: a rousing rendition of the Band’s “The Weight” that also featured T. Bone Burnett and Mavis Staples, and a duet of Sheeran’s single “The A Team.”

John said the fun of appearing on the Grammy show is playing with other artists.

The 55th annual Grammy Awards will be presented Sunday and broadcast live on CBS.
