Check out these exclusive photos of Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears duetting with Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant at a special charity gig in London on Sunday evening. Jake and Neil performed "Loves Comes Quickly" (from Pet Shop Boys' 1986 album "Please") that morphed into a gorgeous rendition of "It Can't Come Quickly Enough" from Scissor Sisters' debut album. (Click photos to enlarge.)

Proceeds from this special gig at Kokos will go to Body and Soul, a charity that supports kids and their families that are living with HIV. The concert will raise funds for Body and Soul’s new center in London. Other talent that performed last night was Lil Chris, Pete Tong, Ben Elton and DJ Sammy Jo.

Looks like a fantastic, toned down performance by Jake and Neil (both dressed in suit) that marked the teaming of two generations of openly gay pop artists for a wonderful charity. Hopefully, we will get to see something of this on YouTube soon.

(Big hugs for Kevin for sending me these exclusive photos.)

Jake Shears is the best and he pours his heart and soul into every song he sings - and he is the cutest guy alive. JAKE YOU ROCK!
