Wham!'s Andrew Ridgeley Gives Emotional Tribute to George Michael! (VIDEO)

Andrew Ridgeley -- the other half of '80s pop duo Wham! -- has remained mostly out of the public eye since the unexpected death of George Michael on Dec. 25, 2016. But at the 2017 Brit Awards, Ridgeley stepped into the spotlight to deliver a touching tribute to his friend and former band mate. 

Joined by Helen "Pepsi" DeMacque & Shirlie Holliman (who toured with Wham! as backing singers Pepsi & Shirlie), Ridgeley talked about the band's early days and Michael breaking out into solo stardom.

Following their emotional words, Chris Martin took the stage to duet with George Michael on "A Different Corner" via vintage video footage.
