| 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)!

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.

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.

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:

Adele is nothing if not perfection. And sometimes that means being a fucking perfectionist.

The Hello singer paid tribute to George Michael on the 2017 Grammys stage with a performance of Fastlove, turning the upbeat track into a dirge.

But the sad, slow version didn't get off to the best start. So Adele said FUCK IT — literally, she totally swore on live TV — and stopped the song to go again.

George Michael's cause of death may have been ruled "inconclusive," one of his loved ones believes he knows exactly what led to the singer's untimely passing.

On Tuesday, Andros Georgiou opened up to BBC Two's Victoria Derbyshire about the late legend's drug abuse issues, saying he believes the Wham! frontman had recently been reintroduced to serious narcotics:

"Hard drugs had been back in his life."

Which drugs? Andros revealed crack cocaine had been one of the iconic artist's favorites.

George Michael's cousin has had enough!

On Sunday, George's cousin Andros Georgiou took to Facebook to express his distrust of the singer's controversial boyfriend Fadi Fawaz. As we previously reported, Fawaz was the one who found Michael dead on Christmas morning.

Since the icon's passing, Fadi has exhibited strange behavior like posting a tweet suggesting his boyfriend "wanted" to die. The creepy message sparked a lot of outrage and confusion.

Now it looks like Georgiou is speaking out on the offending message and setting the record straight on his true feelings. In the post, Andros questioned why the pair weren't together on Christmas Eve and why Fadi slept in his car that fateful night.

The concerned family member ranted:

"[Fadi] was never with Yog [a family nickname for George] 24 hours a day they never lived together he lived in one of Yogs houses in Regents Park. And even if they were, WHY were they not together on Christmas Eve? and WHY did he sleep in the car? Too many questions have come up."

Wow… it sounds like there's a lot of bad blood here.

Take a look at the suspicious post (below)!
