Add Elton John to those who were not expecting him to get an invite to Rush Limbaugh's wedding.
"To put it in Elton's exact words, when he got the invitation, he was 'a little surprised,' " his partner David Furnish told PEOPLE on Sunday at the Tony Awards in New York. "And then, when it turned out to be a genuinely sincere invitation … Elton said, 'Life is about building bridges, not walls.' "
John also saw it as another opportunity, in his words, "to go where people wouldn't expect me to go."

Elton John may have seemed like the last person expected to perform at Rush Limbaugh's wedding over the weekend.
Limbaugh, 59, has made a number of colorful remarks about gays that have sparked outrage – and kept his conservative credentials intact. But on some issues, they do share common ground.
Limbaugh, for instance, told Zev Chafetz, author of the Limbaugh biography Army of One, that he supports civil unions for gay couples instead of marriage – a point on which Limbaugh and the openly gay John agree.

Talk about an odd couple: conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh and outspoken gay civil-union advocate Elton John.
But, according to a News Corporation (which owns Fox News) wire report, the Rocket Man, 63, serenaded the 400 guests into the wee hours Saturday night to celebrate the marriage of Limbaugh, 59, to Kathryn Rogers, 33, in the Ponce de Leon ballroom of Florida's fabled Breakers hotel in Palm Beach. Sir Elton's fee: $1 million, the report notes.

As a pain was overcoming his chest last month, Rush Limbaugh thought it was "the big one".
"I've never experienced that kind of pain before and I've always wondered what it felt like," he told reporters Wednesday at Las Vegas's Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
Though Limbaugh had feared that he had heart attack while vacationing in Hawaii in December, doctors told him it wasn't. So what was it?
"We still don't know what it was that happened," Limbaugh, 59, says. "I got an angiogram and the doctors were stunned because there was no blockage, there was no arterial disease or coronary disease. … They think it was an infection that caused an arterial spasm."
Now, though, "Everything is fine," he said.

REMOVED: The end finally came on Thursday night for the once invincible Survivor: Palau player Stephenie LaGrossa, who had been the last Ulong member standing.

After her torch was snuffed, Stephenie said: "I was outnumbered by an entire tribe. I'm actually really proud." Stephenie became the 12th castaway voted off and will serve on the jury that will decide who will win $1 million on the May 15 season finale.
