Madonna and Elton kiss and make up

Elton John and Madonna have finally called a truce to their bitter three-year feud.

Elton John and Madonna have finally called a truce to their bitter three-year feud.

The row erupted after the bespectacled singer publicly accused the Material Girl of lip-synching on her tours during a foul-mouthed outburst at a London awards ceremony in 2004.

He denounced Madonna's Reinvention tour at the Q Awards, declaring: "Madonna, best live act? Since when has lip-synching been live?"

But the superstars put an end to the fall-out with an onstage embrace at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, which John was hosting.

He introduced Madonna by declaring their row was over: "This is a moment you thought you would you would never see."

But John couldn't resist one last jibe, revealing that after their dispute he had "written a grovelling apology and offered to join the Kabbalah".
