Elton John, Ed Sheeran join Courteney Cox for 'Tony Danza' tribute to Lisa Kudrow

The “Friends” reunion aired over a week ago, but goodies from the beloved cast just keep on coming.

Courteney Cox paid tribute to her co-star Lisa Kudrow on Sunday by recreating Phoebe Buffay’s infamous misheard lyrics to Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” with the help of some famous pals — including John himself.

She enlisted John, Ed Sheeran and Brandi Carlile for an Instagram video in which they sing the song as Phoebe did, changing the lyrics from “Tiny Dancer” to “Tony Danza.”

In a season 3 episode, Phoebe names her pick for the most romantic song as “the one that Elton John wrote for that guy on ‘Who’s the Boss?'” and she sings the lyrics as, “Hold me close, young Tony Danza.”

“One of the greatest moments of my life. This one’s for you @lisakudrow,” Cox, who played piano in the clip, captioned the post.

Kudrow responded to the video with one her own, calling the tribute “the most thrilling thing ever,” though she did point out that they didn’t get Phoebe’s version of the song quite right.

“Technically it’s ‘Hold me close, young Tony Danza,” but what you did was great too,” Kudrow added. “And, including the original song that you wrote, Sir Elton, that was really good too.”

“Ahahaha! You’re right Lisa!!!” Cox commented back. “Next time we’ll make sure to get the ‘young’ in there.”

Danza himself also responded to the video, saying, “I’m honored!”
