Watch this amazing George Michael tribute act

12 December 2017, 16:42

We've seen a lot of tribute acts in our time, and the hopefuls on Stars in Their Eyes were more often than not, a bit rubbish.

But this guy on the BBC's Even Better Than the Real Thing is pretty darn good at replicating George Michael.

OK, he's very much not better than the real thing, but we reckon Rob Lamberti's cover of 'Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me' is as good as it possibly could be.

The performance features on the upcoming Christmas edition of the tribute act talent show, which also features versions of Sir Elton John, David Bowie, Adele and others.

We reckon George would have loved this.

Meanwhile, George's former Wham! partner Andrew Ridgeley has opened up about the heartbreaking moment he found out that his friend had died.

Smooth Radio will present a special two-hour programme celebrating the life of George Michael at 2pm on Boxing Day. Find out more below:
