We're throwing it back to one of the must-see musical moments of the eighties - when George Michael surprised fans by joining Paul Young on stage for a special duet.

As part of the Prince's Trust Rock Gala at Wembley Arena on October 20, 1986, the duo dazzled a crowd of 12,000 with an impromptu rendition of Young's classic hit 'Every Time You Go Away.'

And that was despite Young having already performed his song only minutes earlier.

As George giddily jumps on stage, he addresses the audience to explain the repeat performance:

"You've heard this one already tonight, but I wasn't expecting to come on. It's the only one we both know!"

Enjoy the splendour of two of the world's greatest pop stars doing what they do best.
