Adam Should Have Done George Michael Tribute

Recommended Posts

I don't think it was quite that bad, sweetygirly, cause you got to hand it to her for pulling herself together and starting over. It would have been a murder if she had continued the whole song that off key. I just don't understand why they went with an arrangement like that? :huh: Felt like they were trying to force as sad a version as possible. I agree that it could have been a better performance over all with some changes or with another song.

I don't like Adele's music but I hoped that this tribute would be at least good. I'm disappointed after that :( Good that she started over because that beginning was so off key,although she really could avoided that f-word while doing it :rolleyes: The arrangement was weird but maybe I'd like it more if somebody else would sing it. In my opinion it was missed opportunity to do a really great tribute for George but I also read that his family at first didn't want any tribute at all and later they insisted that the only person they'd like to do it was Adele so I'm ok with it.

Hi all.

I didnt enjoy the tribute even though i really wanted to. It wasnt bad i just was expecting to be wowed. 

The Brits tribute however came in 2 parts.

The first was spoken words by Andrew Ridgely (who rarely appears in public), his good friend Shirley Kemp whos children he is godfather to and was also the backing singer for wham with Pepsi DeManque who appeared too. This part was beautiful.

Then unfortunately the musical tribute was awful. It was sung by Chris Martin of Coldplay. He sang one of Georges most beautiful songs A Different Corner' and murdered it. The background were beautiful videos of George and at points him singing the song but someone  else imo should have been chosen instead of someone who didnt have the vocal abilities to match georges. Chris' singing style didnt suit the song.

I dont know maybe he was a friend and asked by family.

I was expecting something more from both and was very disappointed.

The Coroner still has not released George Michael's body for a funeral. Surely enough samples will have been taken by now for the required tests? George needs to be laid to rest. He will not be at peace until he is properly laid to rest.

Hi @koula! :) Yea, it seems the family has been very vocal about their wishes and people are being respectful to them - but it's sad if it restrains other artists from paying their tribute to George. At least I can't really see what harm it would do if there were many different tributes. George's work and music meant different things to different people.

Thanks for the link, Anka. :) It really seems the family has - maybe amongst their mourning - been quite determined.

Now George can be rested

Thanks @koula sad news but I'm kind of relieved that his 'cause of death' wasn't something more 'sinister'.  I wouldn't be able to handle any more negative comments regarding this beautiful and talented childhood crush of mine :mellow: RIP George Michael xxx
