Adele 'Too Emotional' To Perform Winehouse Cover For George Michael
George explained to the radio show's listeners "We communicated by email and initially what I wanted was for us to sing Love Is A Losing Game by Amy Winehouse at the Elizabeth Taylor tribute I did at Covent Garden. She was basically telling me she couldn't. She tried to put one of [Winehouse's] songs in her own set and she couldn't even get through it. I think they knew each other from the Brit School. They're obviously musical goddesses but I think the tragedy would have been too much for her."
George has also confirmed that he has been booked to perform two songs at the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony. The former Wham! singer is staging something of a comeback after nearly losing a battle with pneumonia last year. In a recent interview with Chris Evans for the Bbc, he revealed that he had to learn to walk again after his lengthy stay on hospitals, as he had suffered so much muscle wastage.
