All the other finalists are performing with other artists so I am thinking that Brian or Roger may be on here....

*edit*

Well Adam Lambert just performed with KISS.

My phone just got blown up!  hahaha  I missed the first part, was it a grand entrance of sorts? 
Ah well, they did OK, but when you're working with a song as brilliant as WATC, it's tough to fuck up... as long as you can semi-sing.

And before any Idol fans hassle me, I have no idea who they are, but they did a good job on the song,  They could have used a better backing band, though. ;-)

Missed the beginning- how were they introduced?  Any mention of TCR or DVD coming out?

It was a spectacular performance!  Here's a link to it:

I think especially Roger looked fit and like he was enjoying himself a lot.

This explains the lack of updates on Brian's site, I'm sure now. What with WWRY Italy auditions and the surprise AI guest performance, that surely had to take up a lot of their time in the last couple weeks.

Personally find them performing to what must obviously be a big potential audience very good.  The two of them looked totally on form.

Why do they appear on American Idol?
I always thought they don't like those casting shows.

Thank you very much for sharing this (seriously!).

Now we know why they parted company with Paul Rodgers - they progressed to become the backing band of two American Idol finalists!! This must be a dream come true. Who would have thought this back in the 80s when they had to play in in small towns like Stevenage or far away countries like Japan or Brazil...

To be honest I don't care what folk say, this is PR for the brand Queen

So what, if the guy cited them as an influence why the hell not appear on the show? everyone has to start somewhere and if these shows had been around in the 60's-70's you can bet bands like the Stones and The Beatles would have made an appearance if the audence was as big as it is for this stuff

So it may sell a few more albums...cool

I think we forget sometimes that the business they are in is called show business...

Not a bad performance, but it sounds exactly the same as those boring musical versions.

Feels like we're back in 2002, 2003 or 2004.
