It usually takes two singers to properly cover Elton John and Kiki Dee’s iconic duet, ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.’ However, one man recently tried to pull off his own version, performing both roles. His attempt has gone viral, as he uses make up and a mirror to appear as both singers and even Elton John is a fan.

Darrell Thorne is a costume designer and make-up artist, which definitely was needed to pull off his viral one man show. IN the video, Thorne is dressed as both Elton John and Kiki Dee, split down the middle; as the mirror gives the allusion of two different people. "Just over here tryin’ to be a power couple all by myself,” Thorne captioned the video.

The video caught the eye of Elton John who included it in his Instagram story this week, along with a “Fabulous” sticker. Even with all the views, getting the approval of Elton John has to make the attempt worth it. Hopefully more iconic duet covers are to come from Thorne.
