Elton John announces details of 27th annual Academy Awards Viewing Party

Ben Gibson/Rocket EntertainmentOnce again, Elton John and his celebrity pals will be hosting a star-studded Oscar viewing party.

The Elton John AIDS Foundation's 27th annual Academy Awards Viewing Party will take place Sunday, February 24, 2019, at West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. IMDb is sponsoring the event, and will broadcast a live streaming companion show, hosted by Aisha Tyler and Dave Karger.

The event usually features a performance by Elton himself, as well as a special musical guest -- this year, it's alt-rock superstars The Killers.

Among the co-chairs of this year's event: Taron Egerton and Jamie Bell, who star in the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman, as well as Tiffany Haddish, Heidi Klum, Neil Patrick Harris, Miley Cyrus, Ellen DeGeneres, Sharon Osbourne, Mike Myers, Katy Perry, Spike Lee, Coldplay's Chris Martin, Rob Lowe, Tyler Perry, Sharon Stone, Britney Spears, Denzel Washington, Meghan Trainor, Steven Tyler, and many more.

Over the years, Elton's Oscar party has raised more than $68 million for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, via ticket sales, donations and a live auction of luxury goods, collectibles and unique experiences. The money goes to helping those at risk for, or those living with, HIV/AIDS, as well as treatment and prevention programs and medical care in the Caribbean.
