When it's an Elton John you're planning on performing, you better bring your A-game. For "Idol" alumni, Haley Reinhart, and Season 15 contestant, Kory Wheeler, that's exactly what they did in Thursday's (Feb. 18) episode.

Reinhart previously blew the judges away when she performed "Bennie and the Jets" in Season 10. Teaming up with Wheeler, who showcases his guitar skills in the above clip, adds a nice layer to the song that brings the tune new life.

The duet was the second performance of the night and after Kellie Pickler and Amelia Eisenhauer teamed up for their Sara Evans number, the energy remained high throughout this number. Needless to say, with a full round of approvals from the judges, Wheeler and Reinhart did Elton John proud.
