Wait, George Michael Covered Ian Brown's 'F.E.A.R.'?

So this happened a couple of months back, during Michael's gig at the Manchester Arena. It was a one-off. "This might be a bit crap," warns the veteran pop star. "But I really wanted to pay tribute to this man, I think he's a great writer."






Perhaps it's not such an unlikely a song choice. George Michael's probably no stranger to The Fear. He is, after all, the guy who crashed his car into a branch of Snappy Snaps while stoned. And, to be fair, his faithful version of Brown's best-known solo track is perfectly creditable, awkward dad dancing notwithstanding.
