Me, too! I hope it won't be Gaga! If Justin Timberlake is there, he will probably do the honors.

Who knows who will be a part of it as of yet? I don't.
I just hope it will be worthy for GM. He deserves a tribute. And a worthy one at that, I'm really not concerned who will be a part of it.
ETA~Some say Adele is the one who sang the tribute for GM at the Grammy's. I'm so glad, because there was such mutual respect between them.
I will have mixed feelings watching. I know George Michael has paid tributes to so many during his career, and there is a tribute to/for George on the Grammy's...so bittersweet. I'm sure I will be watching with a lump in my throat.

Goosebumps while watching Fast Love sang by Adele. Beautiful. :bigups:
Wow, she carried on and pulled it off so well :wow: That's how it's done :bigups:
And to Adele...thank you :bigups: with my own tears falling.

Bittersweet day.
It is now known what caused his death. Hoping he is at peace now.

The 25th marks what would have been his 54th birthday. And 6 months since he passed.
Thank you again, GM, your voice and lyrics are helping me once again. You will never be forgotten. Miss you.

A new single on BBC Radio 2 tomorrow! :mouth:
Correction, it will be a remix of Fantasy. Hmm. Not one of his best tracks.

If I didn't know any better, I would have thought it was a Daft Punk song. I love George's vocals, as for the rest...I hope it will grow on me. I actually hope it doesn't grow on me.

I think it sounds great. I know it was originally recorded for Listen Without Prejudice, but it could so easily have been straight off Faith.

Yeah i think thats why i don't like it, Faith is my least favourite GM album, in fact Kissing the Fool is the only song i like from that album.

:shock: You don't like One More Try? Hands down my favorite GM track of all time and one of my favorite songs of all time.

I don't dislike those too much, but Father Figure, I Want Your Sex, Faith & Monkey are horrible songs in my opinion.

Not quite. It was originally recorded during the Faith sessions but released later as a Prejudice b-side.
