I saw George singing away with many other stars when I watched ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ on my phone today.

It upset me to think that he passed away at Christmas time some decades later. 🥲

There’s yet ANOTHER track that’s well worth listening to on Top of the Pops, with George Michael singing with Queen. The track is ‘Somebody to Love’.

It’s devastating to take in that George is no longer with us.

This came from the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert, which I talked about back in May.

5-11 minimum in the younger days for him. Maybe 5-11.5

It looks like it, although George is a few inches further away than David.

George sang Queen’s Somebody to Love in the Freddie Mercury tribute concert.

He did a grand job as well!

5ft11. 🕯

People actually lose height as they age. I used to be 5 feet 2 inches when I was in my 20s. I have suffered from back problems. Now I am almost 60 years old, and I am 5 feet. I lost 2 inches from discs in my back compressing. If I remember correctly, George Michael had back surgery. This would change his height if a vertebrae were indeed removed as he reported. He could have easily been 6 feet tall, then decreased as much as 2 inches after that time.

This is what happened to my own father. While in active service with the military, he was 6ft 1 inches, now he is a mere 5 ft 11 inches. Just saying!

Needs a 179 downgrade

I met him at Stringfellows in the early 80s he's well under 5ft 11 but who cares with a voice like that.

5’10.75” one of the greatest. RIP

Make that 'Feel Good' 80s anthems, and yes, it was definitely my auto****head because it just tried to alter it again!😜😂
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Aug/21
Wham! happened to be the very first act that I saw this morning when I turned over to the music channel to find that they're covering a rundown of 101 'Feel Hood' 80s anthems.

I felt so sad to think that this vibrant and happy-go-lucky singer would only live for 53 and-a-half years, passing on on Christmas Day, 2016. 😢

Rob, please put up the video with Glenn and George Michael pretty please 🥺 🙏
Editor Rob
video? Is that an intentional misdirection/attention manoeuvre ;)

I can reupload George and Glenn if you like.

One thing with removing those photos was that some of the old comments became redundant and for anybody reading that far down the comments, some of it also nonsensical.

George Michael would have turned 57 today. He died suddenly on Christmas Day 2016, and the world was absolutely numb. He lived for just 53 and-a-half years to the day, which is no age in the 21st Century.

5ft11 🌹

RIP George 🕯️ XXX

Matt99 said on 26/Dec/19
Rob I have a feeling he might be closer to 5’11.25. I see 181 vibes from him. I couldn’t imagine him any lower than 5’11. He’s the definition of a solid 5’11 man to me, can look tallish but in no way tall.
Beej said on 9/Dec/19
I note George always liked a bit of a heel as he got older but never looked above 6 ft. I'd say 5 10.5 - .75, slim at peak) with a longer leg making him look taller.
Antony Lara said on 5/Sep/19
I've known George for 20 years and he was definitely 5 11 inches tall. When he lost weight he always looked taller, His weight did factuate which when he was a bit heavier he naturally looked shorter. Age was also a factor as we do get a bit shorter with the years. I am 6 feet 1 inch and he was a few inches shorter then myself.
William_O'Jell said on 12/Apr/19
I saw George Michael once in a Nite-club (in the late 1980's). I am 6 feet tall and he was almost exactly the same height as me. I did take heel height into consideration.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Feb/19
Solid 5ft11. More chance of measuring a little over than under, IMO.
Gracian said on 2/Nov/18
Maybe at first I misjudged the height from George, in the pictures next to Sting we can not see their shoes, also Sting seems to get a little closer to the camera than George in each of the photos. Maybe they both have a chance of 181 cm. George met Geri Halliwell in 2000, she had a large heels advantage over him, and yet she looked almost a head shorter than him. Here are their joint photos from 2000:

Besides George, next to Paul Young, he really looked no less than 181 cm:

Rob, do you think that 5'11.25" can still be argued for him?
Editor Rob
George has claimed both 6ft and 5ft 11...I think the 5ft 11 is more believable. Sting has been consistent with 5ft 11, though he too could be argued 181cm.
berta said on 23/Aug/18
i think 180 is about right for him
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Aug/18
Too sad for words. It's hard to believe.

Rob, how likely is 5ft 11.25in?
Editor Rob
Not exactly impossible...though I think his 5ft 11 claim is closer to the truth than his once upon a time 6 foot claim.
Steven Wade said on 25/Jun/18
I think George was 5"11 no more no less.Although maybe he was not measured towards the end of his life!

JJJ- i am 5ft7.25 and have been called tall now and again but not often.

If i was 5ft11 i would be getting tall comments quite often.
JJJ said on 1/Mar/18
I think 5'11 would be viewed as tall to shorter people for the most part. If you are 5'11 and having longer legs opposed to a longer torso, you may be called tall occasionally.
Rory said on 18/Feb/18
I think 5ft11 is very fair, he's definitely taller than guys like Mick Hucknall who claims it too who probably should be 5ft10.5.
Gracian said on 16/Feb/18
Rob, I admit that keeping Sting and George Michael at the same height is simply tiring for me... Just type in the graphic "Sting and George Michael" in Google Graphics to see that Sting clearly looked like a taller one! Sting's peak height, in addition to other celebrities, was always more impressive than George Michael's peak height! That's why I think that 181 cm can still be argued for Sting, I think he could drop some factions down, being modest... Ultimately, I think that either Sting should get an upgrade to 5'11.25" or George Michael should get a downgrade to 5'10.75". I really do not believe that in their youth they could be the same height, George Michael really looked shorter than Sting.
MrTBlack said on 10/Feb/18

Agreed, 5’11” is the most for him. Maybe 5’10.5” is my guess.
Slim 186 said on 4/Dec/17
A 179 range downgrade is necessary.

This is also bad news for Rob Lowe who could potentially just be a flat 5’9” guy: Click Here
Not sure about footwear though. Shame on Lowe for inflating himself by 3 inches.

Meant to say can’t see anywhere near 6’0”. He’s near 5’11
Canson said on 20/Oct/17
I can’t see anywhere near 5’11. I can look at him with the rest of Wham or with Deon Estus and he looks as if he’s barely 5’11. May really be more like 179cm really or best 5’10.75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Oct/17
He wore thick boots in the 80's and his hair definitely added some. Probably passed for 6ft...
Dublin guy said on 19/Oct/17
Would you wager 6 foot for Michael when he was younger rob?
Editor Rob
I really cannot see him that tall.
Dublin guy said on 19/Oct/17
Fully believable for this man he does look tall but not freaky tall.
Jez said on 17/Oct/17
Ok well he asked me to a party in the 80s at Stringfellows and he was lucky to be 5 ft 9 no one believed me as he wasn't out of the closet then. So I doubt anyone will believe how tall he really was now either...
Montana said on 11/Oct/17
George was a guy that I could buy to be even 6ft tall. Unlike Brad Pitt he looked between 5'11 and 6ft on most occasions even with flat shoes

The guy is 5'10.5" at best. I think if he were truly 5'11" he'd claim 6' or 6'1". Final guess.

When I was 10 I thought I was going to marry George Michael I remember having the faith CD and just staring at the picture in the middle of him sitting down with his back up against the wall and his bare feet and his pant leg rolled up and I only was his body sexy but he also had nice feet, to this day next to rob Patterson the guy from twilight, he could play George Michael and a movie about George Michael those are probably the two sexiest men, that ever were unfortunately one is dead and the other if he keeps up with his drug and alcohol abuse will be dead soon two incidents were talking about the guy from twilight is costar "Bella" is big big big and shooting up heroin look how much weight she's lost and you can see when they show her eyes there's hardly a pupil there .yes Kristen Stewart is an opiate drug attic… Big-time

@Matt179, agreed, 181 from me, there's always the possibility he was 5"11 and a change but rounded down. rip, he lived a short life, but a good one.

Look exactly same build as Brad pitt, Adam levine.

They all look the same Body Wise proportion.

I met him in the 80s and he was no more than 5 ft 9 presumably he had flats on.
James B said on 18/Mar/17
A legit 5'11 obviously would not be tall to guys over 6ft though
James B said on 16/Mar/17
Rob do you agree that a fair amount of people would view a legit 5'11 as tall especially women?
Editor Rob
yes James, a proportion will view it as tall, or at least tallish. It's in that range of transitioning from upper average to near the bottom range of tall.
Sing Sing said on 3/Mar/17
He was 5'9" in his prime but 5'8".5 in his later years and most likely wore lifts to increase half an inch.
Editor Rob
I think that is taking things a bit far...

you can see George with 6ft 1 Paul Young who has at least 0.5-0.7 inch more footwear.
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Feb/17
Tonight on the Brit Awards, there was a beautiful tribute to George by his fellow 'Wham' members, Andrew Ridgeley, Pepsi and Shirley, taking the viewers right back to Christmas Day when he died.
Afterwards, there was a George Michael song performed by Coldplay's Chris Martin and towards the end, you could see George on a big screen singing the song at the same time.
It was all rather too emotional to take in heights, although when he was singing in the background, I thought "this guy was never under 5ft11 - not when he did this recording!"
It was good to see Andrew again! He looked fit and tanned. I think he was a tiny bit shorter than George in their videos.
I'm going to put 5ft11 for him. There's a bit of speculation going on about his being a full 6ft at the onset of his career among the comments I've just read. I think it's not impossible, though half an inch under could be more realistic.
He was nearer the 5ft10 mark when he died, but I'm putting
his optimum height as there is only one box! 🎼🎶🎵🎤🎶
Tubbs said on 18/Feb/17
Looked tall in the early days, heard him in an interview state that he had 2 vertebrae removed due to a chronic back problem, how much height would he have lost from that Rob?
Editor Rob
if he had fused vertebrae it could have effected him maybe a cm.

George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley appear 5'9" 1/2 approximately next to Dick Clark at 5'9" also.
Johnson said on 31/Jan/17
@Rob George Michael around 5'11 is ok, but look at him with James Corden. Is it not about time to upgrade to James Corden? He looks rather 5'9 to 5'8

Corden can fall into strong 5ft 8 range.
Jock said on 13/Jan/17
Agree with the opinion. One thing that P's me off is how all the newspapers, magazines, internet etc say about 'oh it's obvious all the gay messages hidden in his songs when you look back'. Obvious, really? George himself wasn't certain about his sexuality until his late 20s, and has said many times that only after that point were some of his songs about men (and some were quite clearly that). Why must people try and feel smug by reading things into stuff that was never there? Life, and people, never that simple I'm afraid.
Ejel Khan said on 7/Jan/17
R.I.P - legend. Was quoted in the 80's as 6', as was Ridgeley. However, the duo personally claimed 5'11 and 5'10, respectively. Andy does appear slightly shorter, if you look carefully at their videos. Laterly, before his sad and premature demise he appeared 5'10.
Beej said on 3/Jan/17
5 '11 seems spot on. George was also thin at his peak - which helps in being perceived as taller. And latterly always wore thick heeled / bottomed shoes (giving a 6 '1 impression :)
Canson said on 28/Dec/16
He is a classic 5'11 guy. RIP.

5'10 now that he got older he was probably 5'11.5 when young

A lanky 5'11 who in boots/big hair could have passed for a 6 footer when he was younger.
Danimal said on 9/Oct/16
He used to get 6'0" listings in the 80's. Could have been closer to that mark 30 years ago and was down to 5'11" by 2012 when he was quoted on twitter as saying he's 5'11".
Ted said on 4/Jun/16
I met him a few times in 80s at Hippodrome when I was bouncing there, and he was a bit shorter than me, Im 184-185. He was about maybe 180.
James B said on 1/Mar/16
He might be under this now
Martin B said on 6/Feb/16
Bumped into him in St Tropez, in what I guess must have been July 1984, having his caricature drawn at the harbor's edge and I was taken aback at just how small he was (granted he was sat on a high stool). I was stood about a foot from him for a couple of minutes, he had not drawn any crowd (clearly nowhere near as well known as he was in the UK) and I respected his privacy and left him to enjoy his time away from the glare. I am 5'10" and 150 lbs and I thought he was notably smaller and more slight than me. This surprised me as I had developed the opinion from having seen a barrage of Wham music videos and studio appearances, with him in leather jacket and white T and thinking he was both tall and well built. He is part of the soundtrack to my youth and even to this day, but 6', no way. But what difference does his height make with undeniable talent like that?
Netta said on 31/May/15
George Michael looks taller than 5 foot 11. He looks 6 foot 1 even. He is taller than 5 foot 11, that don't seem right at all. 5 foot 11 isn't short, but George Michael is taller than that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/14
Rob, is a fraction over 5ft11 possible?

He's claimed both 5ft11 and 6ft

Rampage, yeah in the 80' he could easily pass 6feet with his big blow-dry hairstyle ^^
scotty said on 6/Aug/13
I stood next to George in Heathrow Airport in London. He is telling the truth I am 6 foot even and he was about the same as me. Also he was extremely pleasant and friendly to all the people who came up and talked to him. very nice man.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/13
Raph, if you're 6ft1 and he was 1.5in shorter than you, he's 5ft11.5 which is 182cm not 179cm. Slight miscalculation there!

I think 5ft11-5ft11.5 is closer. In the 80s and 90s he could pass for 6ft
Raph said on 18/Mar/13
Stood next to him at Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. I am 1m85 (6'1) and he look 1 or 1.5 inch shorter than me. Would say 1m78-79 barefoot .
Derek said on 27/Sep/12
Always thought he was around 6'0", but this works. He's very thin which can make him appear taller.

I would say he has been -- I think he's been arrested roughly 10 times for some form of possession/intoxication. Not sure what effect that has on height, though. In most cases, he looks about 5'10-10.5".
redioaktiv said on 19/Sep/11
Michael is very thin. He is 5'8" with shoes, probably 5'7" without
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/11
I wouldn't say George Michael has been an excessive drug user and he's only 47. In the 'Faith' music video I thought he looked 180cm.

I think 5ft11.5 is perhaps a little generous as he did look slightly shorter than legit 182cm Sting in that Band Aid music video in 1984.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jul/11

this is so funny. george in the 80s was shorter than 5/10 sting looks 6 feet so i guess george is using lifts too lol. i met sting backstage in the 80s and im 6 feet and he was shorter...same happened with BONO, he was sooo short omg i couldnt believe it

i saw him in concert this past summer . . . he seemed 5'10 - 6'0 is, he was wearing boots with about a 1 inch heal . . . i doubt he had lifts in them because he was really running around alot on stage. He's probably somewhere between 5'10 - 5'11

he does claim near 6ft, so 182cm strong maybe.

no problem hb45.though he has slight boot advantage,i dont have a problem with him being over 5-11.alot of people dont believe me even when i show proof.the best proof imaginable.

From the beginning, I've said George was more than 5'11 and nobody believed me. Everybody was saying George was 180cm max while I was saying 182cm. But now, I'm happy that at last everybody agree with me. So, thanks Glenn for your pic that brings the truth!

Then I wonder what height Andrew Ridgely is. I always looked slightly taller.

I dunno he just looks tall in this picture. Howcome it's only now that he's this tall. Back in the 80's didn't look this tall. I always pictured him as an average height guy.

Looks 6 ft at least.... Maybe a bit more in the pic but maybe its the hair and the small heel.

He has got to be around 6ft 183cm out of bed. It is how I appear over a 5ft8 guy. Weak 6ft is fine though as I class myself as that.

i said 6ft.though i always felt he was 5-11.he has boots on here with a small heel.

George Michael looks 6' on this photo.

May very well be 6ft. But I always read 5ft11 for this guy. I've no problem pegging George at 184cm. I wonder how tall Andrew Ridgeley would be. I always looked noticeably taller than George.

No I'd say 5'11 at most.
He seemed about an inch and a bit shorter than me, when I met him about 3 times at the club when I was bouncing in 1986. (London hippodrome).
Lego said on 13/Nov/08
i didnt even know he's that tall, i usually guessed 5'10ish.

either the ground is uneven or he's 6'0+

but i think his shoes may be suspect, maybe boots or even lifts.
Anonymous said on 13/Nov/08
Are you kidding me? 5 foot 11 and a half? He looks a tad under 6 foot 1 in this picture. Glenn, what was his footwear like? He has to be the TALLEST looking 5 foot 11er i have ever seen. Seriously
LeeM said on 13/Nov/08
I saw George two weeks ago in Aldi and I'm 5'10 1/2 and he was an inch shorter than me.

Editor Rob
george doesn't shop in ALdi's, he's never out of Poundland!

i love george michael.sure.but i wouldnt say im a big fan.
glenn said on 13/Nov/08
george is always nice.seemed 6ft.but i always felt 5-11 as well.and he could very well be that too.he had boots here with a small heel.
Danimal said on 12/Nov/08
Just shy of 6'0" flat imo.
glenn said on 12/Nov/08 big heel though.
Viper said on 12/Nov/08
I still think hes 5-10. This is the tallest Ive ever seen him look.
Brad said on 12/Nov/08
He's 5' 11" same as Sting. He looks 6' 1.5" here.
Hugh said on 12/Nov/08
Wow, you've upgraded him. Well I'm sure he is this tall but looked 5ft11 when I met him.
MarkB said on 12/Nov/08
Glen you look like you are about to explode with excitement in that pic. Are you a big fan of his? lol
Markus said on 12/Nov/08
Good pic Glenn! Looks like pushing 6'1" in this pic, but what footwear did he have ?
Paul said on 24/Oct/08
I once knew a girl working for concert promoter Graham in SF, and she told me that she was suprised when, organizing a George Michael
Hugh said on 7/Oct/08
Possibly Big King, But he didn't look it next to Elton John. He only looked about 2-3 inches taller. I wonder how tall Andrew Ridgeley is. He looked taller than George.
Big King said on 23/Sep/08
Or maybe 5'11 1/2" is his height.
Hugh said on 9/Sep/08
What he actually said was 'I'm just under 6 feet'.
Big King said on 4/Sep/08
Michael stated his height as 6 feet. (Rob, as an evidence, I'm not changing my username anymore.)
Donna said on 23/Jul/08
I met George in London many years ago and I was "shocked" how small he was! My personal guess would be that he's around 5'9". He's SO gorgeous and very talented:--)
jay said on 3/Jul/08
@ hugh- 6'4 is tall but not giantish imo

5'11 - 6ft seems about right for george
Anon2008 said on 22/May/08
He was on American Idol last night and stood next to Seacrest. And I think he looked 5'11"-6'.
Anonymous said on 7/May/08
well proportioned figure makes him look tall. I think he is between 5ft11 and 6ft tall.
Davey said on 25/Apr/08
George is not short.Hes atleast 180
Hugh said on 18/Mar/08
When I heard that George was 6ft at the age of 14, I assumed that he'd be a giant now like 6ft4 or something. But yeah I saw him in London back in 1985 and he appeared 5ft11 (180cm).
hb45 said on 1/Feb/08
No way George is under 180cm. In pics where he's with artists like Sting or Paul Mc Cartney, he's at least as tall as them, and they are 180cm tall. There's no better evidence for me...
Mr Mayfair said on 23/Jan/08
Very slim and much less than six foot, despite wearing thick soled/heeled boots...perhaps a true 5'9''?
hb45 said on 25/Sep/07
He's a little bit under 6'. He said once he was already that tall when he was only 14 years old, and people always thought he was 18...
GM Fan said on 29/Aug/07
I think George Michael is a fine looking man with the perfect most normal height for a guy like him. Speaking for myself, I'm a bit over 6'7 (2.01 m) and I sometimes envy his definitely smaller height then me. Judging his height though, there's no doubt he's 1.80.. I live in sweden where everyone is actually very tall today.. especially in my school where the average height for boys are between 1.85-1.95 cm.. I'm just a lucky chap for being over 2 metres :P
Eddie said on 21/Aug/07
Definitely 5'11'. Here's a pic of him with Sting. They're of the same height.

"I'm handsome tall and strong" "I'm big enough to break down the door"--lyrics from his hit song "Bad boys". A little creative footwear can make his songs come true.
immoral_animal said on 4/Apr/07
George wears lifts. Prolly more like 5'10" or 5'10.5" tops.
Aussie Bloke said on 22/Feb/07
If George says that he is 5ft11, I would believe him. If he wears lifts, then thats cool, but we will only ever know him as 5ft11. Sly Stallone, looks 5ft11, yet no-one in a million years would believe that height either.
hb45 said on 8/Jan/07
Maybe the spanish TV host thought that George was taller, like 6'1" (1m85) or something like that and he was surprised that George was not that tall. But I'm sure that George is about 5'11"1/2 (1m82). On "YouTube" site, you can see a duo George Michael/Paul Young. Paul Young is 1m91 and you will see that George is not so much shorter compared to him, proving that George is definitely over 1m80.
Ramiro said on 4/Jan/07
And then, why the spanish TV host, who is about the same height of the stated Michael's one, said that he was shocked when he saw how short was George Michael??
hb45 said on 15/Dec/06
In an interview of George Michael in 1987, the journalist asked him about his height, and George answered: "I'm just under 6 feet tall" (or 1m82)
mac said on 12/Dec/06

Totally...George is 174or175cm. His Partner Kenny is 170or171cm
Ramiro said on 11/Dec/06
I don't know. George was in Spain some weeks ago and a TV host who is about 6' in his own words, said that he was shocked when saw how short was George Michael.
Gonzalo said on 27/Sep/06
5`11 at the most. He was smilar in height to Roger Taylor of Queen, who is around 5`10
MHouillon said on 20/Jul/06
Hey, Clive. In case of the Elton JOHN (not Jones) pic: Elton John is very well known for his footwear - He preferres Platform-shoes (just like Bono Vox of U2). George Michael is definitely 5'11" minimum.

Clive said on 18/Jun/06
Here is the same photo on another perspective : Click Here
Clive said on 16/Jun/06
I got another picture showing G.Michael with his boyfriend who's around 5'9. Next to him Michael doesn't look no more 5'10, just see by yourself : Click Here
Viper652 said on 10/Jun/06
Yep, hes 5-10.
Clive said on 9/Jun/06
He's a lil' bit overevaluated he's much less taller than Brad Pitt and moreover I found a photo with Elton Jones where he doesn't look much more 6cm over and as Elton is 172cm G michael may be around 5'10...

Glenn said on 29/Apr/06
He appeared 6ft in boots.
Joe said on 28/Apr/06
He is one of the best singers of all time...after Freddie Mercury, he is 5'10.5, maybe 5'11 definitely not 6'0 though

Editor Rob said on 15/Mar/06
His cousin said: "He was six foot when he was 14"
NMC said on 27/Oct/05
I was next to him at a bar in Miami many moons ago. I just scrape 6'00 and George was not even 5'8...tops.
DP said on 21/Aug/05
I know about those growth spurts. I just recently had one at age 40 when I went from 5'8" to 5'10" with shoe inserts. It was amazing.
Issheuhboy said on 31/Jul/05
I think someone as vain as Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou would be a wearer of the over-heeled shoe. I mean, c'mon, check out his beard! Is this the look of a man that's not vain enough to want to look bigger?
Viper652 said on 31/Jul/05
I can beleive 5-10 because he was listed at 5-11 on his arrest sheet. The 5-11 was probably with shoes on.
J. said on 28/Jul/05 The interviewer notes that Michael is "He is smaller than you would expect with a slight body". So, his eh, current mate, must be a pretty short guy because on the segment of Behind of Music that I just viewed, Michael had a couple inches on him.
Issheuhboy said on 11/Apr/05

Isn't it nice when when you have a growth spurt from being 5'8 at 22, to being 6'0 these days?

Anonymous said on 7/Apr/05
he is barely 1.77 i am 1.87 and he stood next to me and his top got to my nose
J. said on 23/Feb/05
His mugshot for that 'incident' in the park in 1998 had him as 5'11".
