68

The 91st Annual Academy Awards received off to a rockin’ begin on Sunday (Feb. 24) night, because of an explosive efficiency from Queen and Adam Lambert.

Sporting a teal sequin-patterned blazer, Lambert took the stage alongside authentic Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor to play two of the band’s classics, “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions.”

The efficiency had the viewers on its toes, with stars like Glenn Close, Lady Gaga and Queen Latifah enthusiastically bopping alongside to the hits. Jennifer Lopez was even caught singing together with Lambert from her seat.

The set ended with a bang, as sparks fell from the ceiling and pictures of Queen’s OG frontman, Freddie Mercury, performed on the stage backdrop.

The movie Bohemian Rhapsody relies on Queen's early profession and the lifetime of Mercury. The biopic is up for 5 Oscars this night, together with finest image, finest actor (for Rami Malek), finest sound modifying, finest sound mixing and finest movie modifying.

Following the success of Bohemian Rhapsody, Lambert and Queen are heading out on a 23-show tour this summer time. Lambert first performed with May and Taylor whereas he was competing on American Idol in 2009. The singer started to tour with the band in 2012.
