The critically acclaimed performer who has sold 25 million albums, won two Grammy awards and has completed four sell out tours and recently embarked on his fifth, will be bringing his unique and extraordinary talents to the small screen, headlining this special one off show for a star studded audience.
Michael treats his showbiz fans including Imelda Staunton, McFly, Keeley Hawes, Lemar, Joanna Page, The Saturdays, The X Factor’s Stacey Solomon and Dervla Kirwan to selection of his much loved hits including Home, Cry Me A River, Me & Mrs Jones, Everything and Feeling Good, plus his latest hits Haven’t Met You Yet and Hold On.
Guaranteed to be one of the hottest tickets in town viewers will have front row seats to this exclusive event. The international singing superstar delighted the audience with his cheeky humour when answering questions from celebrity friends including, Dermot O’Leary, Paul O’Grady, Fern Britton, Larry Lamb, Holly Willoughby and X Factor winner Joe McElderry.
Presenter Fern Britton was left blushing when she received a peck on the cheek from the man himself after asking if he had any ambition yet to fill. After the kiss, Michael quipped, “nope I’ve got nothing.”
Taking full advantage of his front row seat, presenter and comedian Paul O’Grady cheekily offered his door keys to the singer after asking if he would ever consider a gay relationship. He also enquired that after trawling the bar and clubs early in the career, what was the “biggest dump” Michael had ever worked in? Michael replied “Everyone in the business has worked in lots of these crummy places, I couldn’t even tell you one because there have been so many.”
Having recently reached the top ten with hit single ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’ Michael was asked what keeps him grounded and cheekily retorted “I would say that world wide would be kind of an understatement at this point in my life, I would say I’m universal even.” And he joked, “I’m here it’s going to sound cheesy I’m actually more popular than Jesus at this point. Not Jesus Christ but the one that Madonna has been dating!”
Holly Willoughby turned the tables on the star when he affectionately made a play about her name, she quipped “Holly Bublé sounds nice, you can call me that – its fine!” She then went on to ask the host if singing romantic songs was a “clever ploy to get the ladies” adding “because it’s working.” Michael replied, “The truth is nothing was clever about it when I was about twelve years old, I was just a young kid who had a dream of getting laid!”
The award winning singer also revealed that when he was younger he dreamed of being a rock star, he said “when I was about twelve or thirteen years old I thought that Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) was like the next coming of Elvis Presley, I thought his voice was amazing, I wanted to be a rock star.”
