Elton John and David Furnish have a real showman on their hands -- 'cause their son Elijah stole the spotlight from dad at LAX. 

We got David returning home after vacay in Aspen and the proud hands-on dad let his son rise above the crowd on his shoulders. The kid, who's about to turn 3, is just too damn cute.

Move over, Elton ... a star is born.
