Sir Reginald "Elton John" Dwight, CBE (born March 25, 1947) is an English rock singer-songwriter, composer, pianist and occasional actor best known for his long-term collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin as his songwriter partner since 1967; they have collaborated on more than 30 albums to date.

He appeared on Saturday Night Live as only a musical guest once and as both host and musical guest once. The first time was on April 17, 1982 where he performed "Empty Garden" and "Ball & Chain" and the second time was on April 2, 2011 where he was both the host and musical guest and performed "Hey Ahab" and "Monkey Suit."

He was also impersonated by Phil Hartman on the March 19, 1994 episode during the "Rockers To Help Explain Whitewater" sketch, by Will Ferrell on the September 27, 1997 episode during the "More Songs I Rewrote To Honor Dead People" sketch and on the November 8, 1997 episode during the "Set Our Nanny Free!" sketch, by Horatio Sanz ten times from February 12, 2000 to February 3, 2007 and by Justin Timberlake on the March 9, 2013 episode during the "Memorial Service" cold opening sketch. Some people thought the first time when they saw it he was impersonated by Taran Killam.
