His former WHAM! bandmates gave a beautiful introduction to a musical tribute from Coldplay's Chris Martin.
The singer confirmed to a fan on Twitter that he won’t be returning as a coach on the new season of 'The Voice' talent show.
There has been plenty of speculation about the lineup of judges for the new season of the show, which will broadcast later this year following its move to ITV.
This morning Boy George revealed that he was not returning, but wished fellow coach will.i.am good luck with the new show.
Boy George joined the show in 2015 for its fifth season, where he replaced Sir Tom Jones. This led to Jones criticising the show’s producers for how they handled his firing.
The only coach confirmed for the new season is will.i.am, who has been on the show since the start. Other stars rumoured to be joining are Sir Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and Rachel Stevens.
