A class of British students from Telford Priory School in England have shared a socially isolated version of Elton John's 1985 hit, "I'm Still Standing," and the music legend couldn't be more delighted with the results.

"I was completely blown away -- in fact, I watched it three times in a row because I couldn't believe how good you sang and played it," John exclaimed in a Twitter video featuring the students' cover, led by music instructor Ben Millington. “I hope you all have a great career and music plays a big part in it, because you have certainly got talent.” Watch their version below.

Millington has shared a video of Elton John's response, featuring the students reacting to the rocker's praise in real time. John also promises to have Millington and his students as guests at a future show in the UK. Watch it below.
