Oscars: The queen will perform at the Sunday ceremony


After spending a week reacting against his plan to shorten the Oscars by not showing certain categories live, and eventually give in, the Film Academy needs your love tonight. Now, some Queen fans might say, "You are my best friend." The group played in the biographical film of 2018 Bohemian Rhapsody is ready to play Oscars Sunday.

This move should please the legion of fans of the film and attract more observers on ABC's television broadcast.

The group includes his original guitarist and drummer – Brian May and Roger Taylor – as well as American idol alum Adam Lambert singing. Its original singer Freddie Mercury, described in the film by Rami Malek, candidate for best actor at the Oscars, died in 1991.

Bohemian Rhapsody


Best Oscar nominated film Bohemian Rhapsody has raised more than $ 854 million worldwide to become by far the greatest musical biopic in the history of cinema. He raised $ 212.2 million in North America alone and was the # 12 film in 2018 in the country. It ranks # 67 on the all-time list of the biggest players in the world.

No word yet on Sunday's queen's extravagance setlist, but it will certainly be about the film's title track and – judging by the time constraints imposed by the Academy – not the legendary 25-minute Live Aid performance featured in the movie.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" was the star song of the 1975 album of Queen A Night at the Opera and reached the 9th place of the Billboard Hot 100. After being the centerpiece of a hilarious film scene From 1992, Wayne's World, the re-released single reached No. 2 US. At the time of its initial publication, it was at the top of the British rankings and found its place in a mix of "These are the days of our lives" shortly after the death of Mercury.
