Lisa Kudrow Has Teeny Problem With Courteney Cox’s ‘Tiny Dancer’ Recreation

Elton John, Ed Sheeran and Brandi Carlile joined Cox in reworking a “Friends” moment — but they got a little something wrong.

Remember when Lisa Kudrow as “Friends” character Phoebe Buffay botched the lyrics to Elton John’s 1972 hit “Tiny Dancer”?

Well, Kudrow’s former co-star Courteney Cox recreated the moment this week with some help from Ed Sheeran, Brandi Carlile and John himself:

Kudrow loved the reworking:

But she also had a slight quibble.

“Technically, it’s um, ‘Hold me close, young Tony Danza,’” she cracked in a video posted on Instagram.

“But, you know, but what you did was great, too,” Kudrow jokingly continued. “You know, including the original song that you wrote, Sir Elton. That was really good, too.”

Cox took the gentle ribbing from her former co-star in her stride:
