The 2017 BRIT Awards Remembers George Michael & The Other A-Listers We Lost This Past Year

| Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.George MichaelSad SadBRIT AwardsChris Martin

Get your tissue boxes ready.

On Wednesday, the BRIT Awards remembered the countless industry vets we lost this past year. Specifically, the awards show focused on the tragic death of George Michael. In case you forgot, the Faith singer passed away this past Christmas due to heart failure.

George touched many people's lives, which explains why his former Wham bandmate Andrew Ridgeley and the duo's backing vocalists, Helen "Pepsi" DeMacque and Shirlie Holliman, got teary eyed while speaking about their fallen friend onstage. The emotional moments didn't stop there though as Chris Martin also performed a musical tribute to Michael during the show!

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the touching tribute for yourself (above)!

Jay Z is having a great 2017 so far.

Not only is Beyoncé's husband getting ready to welcome two new members into the family, but he just scored a historic induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame!

On Wednesday, music legend Nile Rodgers revealed the 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame class on CBS This Morning.

The inductees include: Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Berry Gordy, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Robert Lamm, James Pankow and Peter Cetera of Chicago, Max Martin, and Jay — who is the first rapper to receive the honor!

Mr. Carter edged out some serious competition to earn the spot this year, as George Michael, Gloria Estefan, and Madonna were all nominated but didn't make the cut. Maybe next year, Madge!

Like everything in Bey and Jay's life, this prestigious honor is well deserved for the 47-year-old. He holds the record for the solo artist with the most No. 1 albums in the Billboard chart with 13.

Congrats, Hov!

If you tuned in to the Grammys last night, you saw Adele pay tribute to George Michael with a performance of Fastlove, which didn't get off to the best start.

So, the Hello singer said FUCK IT — literally, she totally swore on live TV — and stopped the song to go again.

In the press room following the flub, the 28-year-old said:

"I was devastated by that, and my rehearsal — I did have a shaky rehearsal today. But I have been working very hard on this tribute for him, every day."

The Brit went on to apologize for cussing on national TV, she just wanted it to be perfect:
