Isn't A Different Life actually A Different Story by another name?

The description sounds a lot like A Different Story. And they have already showed it in 2008, so nothing new here. Besides, the latest news is that they won't be showing it tonight after all, now it's just the Palais Garnier at 21:00 and TOTP at 22:30...

I for one am still waiting for a proper tribute, something new. Shouldn't they have prepared that in advance? Here, in the Netherlands, I know they have some footage of certain celebraties at hand, just in case they die.

I checked the Sky TV guide there and it lists the Palais Garnier show and the TOTP show after it. Rather disappointing if that's their evening of tributes, especially as the Paris show was on a few days ago. :/

Usually they are prepared i am sure, but George? But of course its not good from the BBC to cut the "a different life" codu, which would be maybe something special for a larger crowd of fans. Shame on the BBC thate they dont have much more in the archives and only have the same old and several played TOTP2 Wham! special, beside the Paris Garnier concert film, which already were shown 2 days ago.

It seems the didnt not really worked pretty hard the last 5 days to create a appropriate tribute to one of the greatest singer and songwriter this country ever saw.

Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2017 will give 2016 a fitting send off by honoring the memory of George Michael, who passed away Christmas Day at the age of 53.

The program will pay tribute to the late pop superstar Saturday night by airing archived footage of his group Wham!’s first televised American interview and performance on March 5, 1983. During that performance, the pop duo -- Michael and Andrew Ridgely -- performed "What Rap (Enjoy What You Do)" and "Young Guns" on American Bandstand. The package will air the band's full interview with the late Dick Clark as well as the performance of "Young Guns." Michael was just 19 at the time of the appearance.

“We have lost a lot of entertainment legends this year and so many of us were saddened by the recent loss of George Michael,” show host and executive producer Ryan Seacrest told Billboard. “We hope by showcasing Wham!’s first appearance on American Bandstand in 1983 in a special tribute during the broadcast will remind everyone of his talents, and how he loved sharing them with the world.”

The ABC program, as always, is at the forefront showcasing the biggest names in pop music on the five and a half hour show, which begins at 8 p.m. EST and for the first time ever will feature countdowns from multiple time zones. Seacrest and co-host Jenny McCarthy will usher in performances by Mariah Carey, DNCE, Gloria Estefan and the cast of the Broadway show, On Your Feet, and Thomas Rhett live in New York City from Times Square.

Piers Morgan Life Stories - ITV (UK)


The host is joined this week by 1980s pop icon Boy George, who reflects on his often controversial life and career. He recalls his complex relationship with his violent but loving father, and how - at the age of just eight - he helped his mother survive a suicide attempt. George opens up about his rise to global fame with Culture Club, and his tempestuous relationship with band-mate Jon Moss. He speaks candidly about his traumatic descent into heroin addiction, how he's swapped drugs for Buddhist chanting, and the truth behind his feuds with rival pop superstar George Michael
