George Michael, baby!!!

For the last time, the top 12 are performing. The top 6 girls, dressed in black, come out singing "Faith," and then the top 6 guys come out, in suits, to sing "Father Figure." Is George Michael coming out next? Can it be??? Not yet - they all sing "Freedom" next. Where is George Michael?! They can't possibly be singing a medley of his songs, without having him come out and sing himself. C'mon - I want to see George Michael!!!

YES!! here he comes!!! This is almost as good as when Prince performed!! I mean, who doesn't love George Michael?

He sings "Praying for Time" and he sounds just like he did 20 years ago when the whole world was in love with him, before his arrests, before the drama. He looks older, obviously, not as sexy as he once was, but I still think he's awesome. The past hour and a half has been totally worth it just to watch him perform - just wonderful.

I'm kind of in awe right now, maybe even a little speechless. I know many of you will think I'm gushing, or that he wasn't good, but I so love George Michael - this is about as close as I'll ever come to seeing him in concert and it's just amazing. I wish he had done one more song.

Wait!!! He's gong on tour! I cannot believe this - I'm so going to that show! Unbelievable!!

I completely hope that newsday finds someone else to blog next season's idol so i don't feel like I'm reading TEEN BEAT or something. This is completely annoying. Simon should critique this blog. He's the only one who could do it justice

you actually think George Michael looked and sounded good??? If he took off the glasses circa 1985 you would have seen how he has been through the mill. He sounded below average and even made the exuse he had a cold. I do enjoy your blog as opposed to the above though.

I have been a long time George Michaels fan but I have to tell you he looked scary! Certainly not the gorgeous man we all fell in love with years ago.The song was beyond boring it was more like something David Snoozaletta would sing.Sorry bu I give it a thumbs down.

I would never choose a George Michael song.
