THE TRAGIC NEWS came through late last night that pop legend George Michael had passed away at the age of 53.

Tributes have been flowing overnight, and – aside from his musical legacy – loads of people have been reliving one absolutely brilliant telly moment.

George appeared on a Comic Relief sketch back in 2011 with James Corden… in a prototype of what would become the world famous Carpool Karaoke.

And it was joyous

The presenter tweeted a tribute to his late friend last night

Back in June, Corden spoke to Howard Stern about George’s appearance on that sketch – and how it led to the Carpool Karaoke idea:

We couldn’t put our finger on why is this so joyful? There’s a joy in here. We couldn’t really work out why.

People have been rewatching it with a sense of sadness this morning

“Witty, self-deprecating, superstar”
