Elton John shares Grammy stage with young rockers

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.

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 and WKYT.
