George Michael On Olympics Closing Ceremony: "I'm Performing Two Songs"

18 July 2012, 11:28

The 'White Light' star also reveals that he has no plans to stage a Wham! reunion.

George Michael has confirmed that he will perform two songs at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics.

The former Wham! star said he was not meant to talk about the event at the Olympic Stadium on 12th August - but then confirmed his involvement.

"I'll be performing a couple of tracks at the closing ceremony of the Olympics," he said.

Speaking to Lorraine, George also ruled out plans to reunite with his former band Wham!, who enjoyed hits in the 1980s with songs including 'Club Tropicana'.

"I don't think that will happen I'm afraid, I don't think so," he said. "I think one of the reasons it gets talked about so much is because people want it so much and everybody else has done it.

"Who hasn't got back together? Both Andrew and I appreciate everyone's desire to see us on stage together again, but I don't think it's going to happen."

Earlier this week, it was reported that Jessie J and One Direction were set to take part in the cllosing ceremony next month.

Meanwhile, George has unveiled the new music video for his single 'White Light', which features a cameo appearance from Kate Moss.
