Elton revealed that he would be doing double duties on the show at his posh Oscar party. The function included a live auction of a pair of VIP tickets to the SNL show. The tickets pulled in $75,000 and the proceeds went to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
The singer/composer has been busy. Currently, he has two scores (Billy Elliot and The Lion King) represented on Broadway, as well as an animated film (Gnomeo & Juliet), whose soundtrack features hits from his back catalog.
The SNL episode starring Sir Elton airs live on April 2.
