Lady Gaga & Elton John’s Version Of “Hello Hello” Nixed From ‘Gnomeo’ Soundtrack

By: Robbie Daw / February 1, 2011

Little Monsters have been anxiously awaiting “Hello Hello,” the duet between Elton John and Lady Gaga that was thought to be appearing on the Gnomeo And Juliet soundtrack (which is out February 8). But it turns out that the version of the song featuring the two flamboyant pals will only appear in the movie, and not on the official soundtrack released. Listen to a clip of “Hello Hello” (sans Gaga) below.

The Elton-only version of the song is the one that’s being released commercially. A spokeswoman for Buena Vista Records confirmed the duet is only in the film and wouldn’t be released on radio, notes the Press Association. Gaga’s label declined to comment.

Sigh. Well, maybe people will just be happy with settling for the Elton/Nelly Furtado cover of “Crocodile Rock.” Anyone?

Here’s a clip of “Hello Hello”:

We’re expecting thousands of Monsters activating their Voice Memos apps in movie theaters once Gnomeo hits the big screen on February 13.
