It’s not like it was the best kept secret in the world, but George Michael has let the cat out of the bag and revealed he will be singing at the Olympic closing ceremony (even though he wasn’t supposed to mention it).
The singer, who shockingly nearly died from pneumonia just last year, ended speculation when he spoke on Twitter of his Games-based stage fright, saying:
“Hey everyone, how are you. Spending most of the next week rehearsing like crazy for the Olympic closing ceremony. Obviously a bit nervous not having played for nearly a year, but rehearsals sounding great so far!”
When one follower pointed out that this was supposed to be a secret, George replied:
“Oh, and, secret? It’s been all over the press for weeks, and I think you all needed to be put out of your misery!”
But what songs has he been rehearsing? We’re still crossing our fingers for I’m Your Man and Fast Love.
