Excuse us while we pick our jaws up off the floor. Adam and Queen received a standing ovation from Simon Cowell after their heart-stopping performance on ‘The X Factor.’ Watch it here!
Any diehard American Idol fan knows that Adam Lambert can belt out any tune he crosses paths with, but he still managed to excite us when he performed “Somebody To Love” with Queen on the U.K. version of The X Factor!
Adam Lambert & Queen’s ‘X Factor’ Performance Of ‘Somebody To Love’
Queen performed their iconic hit with current frontman, Adam Lambert, handling the vocals, in front of a packed crowd, including judges Simon Cowell and former Spice Girls member Mel B.
Adam hit all of Freddie Mercury‘s notes with precision, while adding his own unique touch that made us fall in love with him when he competed on Idol in 2009.
And towards the end of the performance, the X Factor contestants joined Adam and Queen on stage to sing the “Find me somebody to love” bridge before Adam slayed the rest.
Adam Lambert Makes Simon Cowell Proud
Idol fans know how tough of a judge Simon is, so for him to give Adam and Queen a standing ovation just goes to show how amazing their performance was! Simon must be so proud to be able to say he helped boost Adam to superstardom.
Adam famously was named the runner-up during season 8 of Idol. Kris Allen came out the victor that year.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Was this Adam’s best performance ever? Tell us how you feel!
