It’s been confirmed! Rickey.org reported last night that Queen would be performing with American Idol’s Top 6 next week. That’s not all, folks! The remaining contestants will be taking on the songbook of…QUEEN! There is no word on a second theme, but the Queen songbook is pretty massive. The contestants will also be performing with band members Brian May and Roger Taylor!
Slated to perform on the results show is pop star Katy Perry performing her new song “Part of Me” and Season 10 alum Stefano Langone — who will debut his first single “I’m on a Roll.” Take a listen to it HERE.
Also, the Queen tribute band The Queen Extravaganza will be heating up with results stage as well.
