"He's a good guy," Michael told E! News. "He's a nice person and he's a handsome dude."

Sean trended on Twitter after he accompanied his father to the Golden Globes, and will return to the red carpet in February as he is said to join Michael at the Oscars.

Addressing why he wasn't joined by the songwriter at the SAG Awards too, Michael explained: "[He] just came off the road…just in Little Rock with a country band, so he's writing for everybody."
