'The Grave' is expected to appear on an anti-war album later this year.
The T-shirt, on which is writed 'No War, Blair Out' is worn by the singer's cellists during the performance, but George has been told that all images of the T-shirt will be edited out.
A spokesperson for 'Top Of The Pops' told: "There are BBC guidelines we have to adhere to. We have to be neutral and the shirts were a political statement.
"George was not upset. He sat with the producer afterwards. He was perfectly happy. This has been blown out of proportion."
However, a spokesman for George Michael was commenting: "There was a heated discussion between George and the producers. He wasn't happy about this at all."
