Adam Lambert Set to Be New Lead Singer of Queen

Truth rating: 8


Adam Lambert is reportedly the new lead singer of Queen, the throne once held by rock icon Freddie Mercury.

The “American Idol” runner-up revealed the news in an interview with the Daily Star, saying, “The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie and the band by singing some f*cking great songs. It’s to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of.”

Lambert added, “There’s no intention in my mind of replacing Freddie. That’s impossible.”

Mercury passed away in 1991 due to bronchopneumonia resulting from AIDS.

Lambert first met the band’s members Brian May and Roger Taylor when they performed “We Are the Champions” during his “Idol” finals in 2009.

He also performed with them at the MTV EMAs last November.
