Queen and Adam Lambert opened up the 91st annual with a performance of “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions.” Queen having a presence at the Oscars makes sense considering the band’s biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” had five nominations at this year’s award show.
As you can see in the video above, Guitarist Brian May and Drummer Roger Taylor kick into “We Will Rock You” and as the current rises Brian May comes running out, followed by Adam Lambert, who has been singing with the band since 2011.
You can see Brian May smile from ear to ear in joy as he watches Hollywood cheer him on. Towards the end of their performance a large image of former singer Freddie Mercury appears behind the band, a beautiful way to remember the rock and roll icon.
Queen + Adam Lambert will be at the SAP Center in San Jose on Sunday, July 14th.
