Carrie Underwood wants to duet with George Michael

Carrie Underwood has an ulterior motive for heading to the U.K. this summer (12) for a gig as she hopes to team up with her music idol George Michael while she is there.

The singing superstar will play her first British concert in June (12) at London's Royal Albert Hall, and she hopes her hero will join her on stage.


She says, "George Michael is at the top of my list. I've been listening to him my whole life. I had the Wham! tape and I wore that thing out. To duet with him would be amazing, I would love to. There's nobody else that has a voice like his."
