World renowned pianist and entertainer Liberace was the guest presenter at the 1971 TV Week Pop Music Awards, where Johnny Farnham won the King of Pop award for the third year running. 

In this short clip from the John Farnham's 25th Anniversary (1992) television special, Liberace eyes off John's crown and provides some comic moments when he offers to lend John a suit to match.

The stark contrast between these two performers – particularly the flamboyance of Liberace alongside the very unassuming John – increases the charm factor in this clip, making it an absolute delight to watch.
