George Michael - The Road to Wembley...
The other night I watched something I'd recorded from last Sunday night, a documentary called George Michael - The Road to Wembley. It was basically an interview with the man himself, some behind the scenes footage in the build up to the show and a number of songs from the live concert itself. The stage looked amazing. How did they do that stage / projection? He sounded great too.

But the jaw dropping moment came during the interview conducted by that idiot Chris Evans. When taking about the previous times George had performed at Wembley - Live Aid, Wham The Final, Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert, Nelson Mandela's 70th Birthday Tribute concert in 1988 - Evans questioned him about the Mandela concert in more detail.

"Did you meet Mr Mandela. On the day?" asks Evans.
George completely dead pan says, "Well, he was still in prison."
Evans smiles weakly, "Oh, was he? So he wasn't there..."
Squirm along 2m 30s in to the video.
