Elton John sings "Your Song" on "American Idol," after talking about HIV/AIDs prevention efforts -- and stumbling badly on the URL for his AIDS foundation (he admits he's a technological Luddite).

The man's done a ton of good in this area, so we'll cut him some slack. Crowd gives him a huge ovation at the end.  Funny, when he smiles, he reminds me a bit of an older David Cook.
