Phil Collins receives mixed reviews on Jonathan Ross Show - "It made me feel really sad"

Phil Collins received mixed reviews following his performance on The Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday night.

The 65-year-old recently announced he would be making a career comeback with his Not Dead Yet Tour, his first live solo concert in 10 years, which sold out in seconds.

While many people flocked to Twitter to praise the former Genesis star's vocals as he sang Against All Odds, others said he appeared frail and some even said it was sad to watch.

One wrote: "Phil Collins performance showed great craft despite his frailty the voice has it."

Another said the performance was good, but something seemed a little off, sharing: "Still a good performance by Phil Collins although something doesn't seem right."

A third said it was a little heartbreaking to watch, writing: "Phil Collins' performance broke my heart a little. And not for the right reason ... #JonathanRoss ."

Echoing their tweet, another wrote: "How on earth is Phil Collins going to do a tour? He barely looked like he coped with singing one song on Jonathan Ross."

But others said the performance was on point, writing: "Really enjoyed watching Phil Collins on JonathanRoss tonight. Humble, funny, honest and such a talented musician. Good luck on tour!"

His appearance comes after he spoke out about his devastating battle with alcohol.

During a recent press conference when he revealed his tour news, he said his problem started when he took a break from music and he started boozing at home in front of the TV.

He said: "I would never drink during the day because I had a show to do. And after the show I couldn't stay up too late because I had to get up in the morning and do another show

"It's when everything stopped that I thought, okay, I'll turn on the television, watch a bit of cricket, have a couple of drinks.

"And then before you know it, within months you're drinking vodka from the fridge in the morning and falling over in front of the kids, you know.

"But it was something I lived through, and I was lucky to live through it and get through it. I was very close to dying."
