London: Singer George Michael doesn`t expect to be invited to perform at the London 2012 Olympics but says he would love to be invited.

The 48-year-old `Careless Whisper` hitmaker says it would be honour for him to be asked to play at the prestigious opening ceremony next year but admits he`s way down on the organisers` wish list, reported Contactmusic.

"I`d love to be perform at the opening ceremony but unfortunately no one`s asked me! I`d imagine they`d ask Take That, wouldn`t they? It seems to be Take That for everything these days," he said.

Michael, who is midway through his `Symphonica` tour of Europe, also said that he is grateful his fans have stuck by him despite a string of personal problems over the past 12 months.

The singer served four weeks of an eight-week sentence for driving under the influence of drugs in September 2010 and recently split from long-term partner Kenny Goss.

"I`ve always known I have incredibly loyal and amazing fans, and they`ve never let me down. But I was pretty overwhelmed by the love and support they`ve shown me in the last 12 months. I`ve always felt that there`s something very special about my audience. When I perform, I can feel from
their energy that they`re very kind people," he added.
