Hosted by Rob Lowe, guests included Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, James Corden, Heidi Klum and even Prince Harry!
Stevie Wonder treated the room to his rendition of Elton's 1973 classic "Daniel. He was then joined by Lady Gaga for one the best "Happy Birthdays" of all time.

The royal sent the singer a very special video message, wishing him all the best for his milestone.
According to E!News, the 32-year-old was rocking a pair of Elton-esque sunglasses while holding a copy of they July 2016 issue of Attitude magazine, which had his brother Prince William as the cover star.
The 70-year-old was a dear friend to the boys' mother Princess Diana, and famously paid tribute following her passing with his remake of "Candle in the Wind."
The beloved Brit also received personal video messages from Ellen DeGeneres, Bono and David Beckham.
“Some people don’t like birthdays, they don’t like celebrating, they don’t want to know about them, and I’ve always enjoyed my birthday," Elton mused about his 70th.
“Seventy sounds so archaic, doesn’t it?”
“When I was growing up, 70 sounded like the end of the world. But things have changed — you’re only as old as you feel inside.”
