From Kansas City Star: Queen + Adam Lambert Will Perform In A "Non-Traditional" Opening For The 2019 Oscars

Don’t get confused if the Oscars show on Sunday sounds more like a Grammys broadcast from the very first minute. The show’s producers have tapped Queen to open the show and shake things up this year. It’s not as random as it sounds. The band and its iconic lead singer, the late great Freddie Mercury, are the subject of one of the Best Picture nominees, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Adam Lambert, who fronts the band on tour, will perform in what PopSugar described as a “full-circle moment.” “The singer famously got his start on American Idol in 2009 after auditioning with ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,” the pop culture website wrote. “That same season, Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor joined Lambert and fellow contestant Kris Allen for a performance of ‘We Are the Champions.’ It was such a good fit that Lambert went on to periodically front the band in subsequent tours.”

They will certainly "shake things up"... as predicted.

Also they'll be performing at the Dolby Theater, where Idol had their live and Finale shows, so Adam should be very comfortable there.

Sunflower!....the DOLBY Theatre?...where Queen and Adam first met and performed together on American Idol? Oh wow!


And last, but not least, I read in today's Sunday paper that Ryan Seacrest will be doing post-Oscars interviews...


Adam should really feel right at home there.
