Watch Queen + Adam Lambert Kick Off The Academy Awards

February 24, 2019

With no host to open the 91st Academy Awards, Queen and Adam Lambert kicked off the ceremony like a jolt of lightning with a live performance of "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions." As their set concluded, a portrait of late frontman Freddie Mercury was cast upon the backdrop.

With five nominations, Bohemian Rhapsody was one of the biggest contenders of this year's ceremony with nominations for "Best Picture", as well as Rami Malek for "Best Actor in a Leading Role" for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury.
