Oscars 2020 was a night to remember for Sir Elton John!

The iconic singer finished his show at Hawkes Bay's Mission Estate Winery and jetsetted off to LA to perform his Oscar nominated song from his biopic Rocketman.

But this year the Oscars were even more special as Elton didn't only perform the song I’m Gonna Love Me Again on stage in front of Hollywood's biggest A-Listers, he also won an Oscar for Best Original Song with the track!

The Oscar is his second, with his first being for the same catergory for his song from The Lion King - Can You Feel the Love Tonight.

Picking up his second Academy Award, he said: "To my ­beautiful boys who are watching this in Sydney, how much do I love you? Daddy loves you."

He and husband David Furnish are parents to Elijah, seven, and Zachary, nine.

Later that night at his Elton John AIDS Foundation party, Elton said: "I just wanted to say that because I am so moved, so overwhelmed, this means so much. I actually have two Oscars now, one each for my boys."
