Not sure if this is old news or not, but watching that terrible recording of Beyonce's terrible rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody reminded me of Pink's version, which my wife has on DVD.

I did a search and someone has posted the entire song on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRLwsr_j2S4

I'm of the opinion that other artists covering Bo Rhap is generally not a good idea, but have to say this is one of the better versions (less bad?) I have seen. At least it's respectful and true to the original. 

She wears a 'Freddie-inspired' yellow jacket (apparently only for that song out of the entire concert).

I like Beyonce and all, she can sing, no doubt, but the version I found, she fucked up lyrically big time

and listening to Pink, she certainly does the song justice in her own way
