LAS VEGAS (AP) — Elton John may not have a current hit on the radio, but he earned the most cheers at the iHeartRadio music festival.

John was one of top performers Friday night at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Katy Perry, Chris Brown, Robin Thicke, Keith Urban and others also hit the stage.

But John was the crowd’s favorite. The 66-year-old was fiery on the piano, belting tunes like “Tiny Dancer” and “Beenie and the Jets.” He earned a standing ovation after his third song.

Adam Lambert was equally as enduring. He performed with Queen and hit appealing notes on the classics “We Are the Champions” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Pop-rock trio fun. also sang with Queen.

Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney, Bruno Mars and others will perform Saturday for the festival’s second show.
