London Olympics: George Michael Confirms Spot at Closing Ceremony

GEORGE MICHAEL has confirmed his appearance at the Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday (12.08.12), but admits he is a "bit nervous" about the event as it will be his return to live performance following his battle with pneumonia.

While Michael is on the comeback trail, Gary Barlow and Take That could drop out of the show in the wake of the tragic news that Barlow's baby daughter was stillborn at the weekend.

The details of the closing ceremony have been kept under wraps so far, but having been linked with an appearance several times, Michael decided it was time to put fans "out of their misery" and confirm his participation.

He tweeted: "Hey everyone, how are you. Spending most of the next week rehearsing like crazy for the Olympic closing ceremony.

"Obviously a bit nervous not having played for nearly a year, but rehearsals sounding great so far!"

He added: "Oh, and , secret? It's been all over the press for weeks, and I think you alll needed to be put out of your misery! (sic)"

As well as George, other artists expected to take part in the closing ceremony include Spice Girls, The Who, Emeli Sande and Jessie J.
