Brandi Carlile had the perfect inspiration for her Grammys look on Sunday night: the Rocket Man himself.

"I'm finally morphing into Elton John," Carlile joked to Laverne Cox on E!'s Live from the Red Carpet, "which is my dream since day one."

Carlile's custom jacket — which weighed a whopping 40 lbs. — was designed by BOSS, she shared, "so I feel like a boss! I don't think I've ever felt more glamorous."

Carlile, 40, who walked the carpet with wife Catherine Shepherd, is nominated for five awards at Sunday night's Grammys in Las Vegas, and is breaking a record as the first woman to ever be nominated for two song of the year Grammys in the same year.
