Kesha says Elton John is 'like a music god'

She was a standout at this year's Grammy Awards, and just two days later, Kesha once again brought the house down during an all-star tribute to Elton John.

The Nashville-raised singer performed John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" in New York City for the televised tribute concert "Elton John: I'm Still Standing – A GRAMMY Salute."

The show, which taped in January, airs at 8 p.m. CT Tuesday, April 10, on CBS.

John — who will embark on a farewell tour later this year — was seated in the front row alongside songwriting partner Bernie Taupin.

"That was insane, having Elton John watch me perform one of his most famous songs," Kesha said backstage. "I’m shaking, that was so exciting."

She said the experience left her at a loss for words, but described John as "a music god."

"Having someone I’ve looked up to since I was a little kid, listening to his records, and studying his melodies like they were the word of God, and then getting to sing one of those songs (for him), it's kind of having me a little bit tongue tied and speechless. I just wanted to do a good job, and I hope I did."

"Elton John: I'm Still Standing – A GRAMMY Salute" also features performances from Alessia Cara, Miley Cyrus, Little Big Town, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert, John Legend,  Chris Martin, Shawn Mendes, Maren Morris, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and SZA.
