Despite performing for more than four decades, singer can’t remember his songs

SIR ELTON JOHN has been accused of using an autocue at his concerts - because he can't remember the lines to his famous songs.

The singer was playing at a private birthday party in Monaco recently when a photographer snapped a picture of a digital device buried in a flower arrangement, which clearly displayed the words to the singer's 1970 hit Your Song.

An onlooker said: "He really got stuck into the performance, giving it everything. But some people noticed a screen hidden in the flowers. Most fans could sing Your Song in their sleep so it's funny Elton needed help with lyrics he's been doing for four decades."

But a representative for the star hit back at the claims, insisting the telepromoter was only used to remind the star of the running order of the show.
