To be honest I don't think he's a Freddie impersonator, just a rather good singer

At the right angle, he does look like Freddie's love-child!!

He's good, and he knows it! - must hear more

I don't get the hype over this guy. Yes he has a great voice and would sound great singing Queen songs but to say he sounds close to Freddie Mercury is just absurd. His tone and overal timbre aren't even close. How can you call this "Freddie Mercury Incarnated"? Cmon, there will never be anyone again who has a voice that sounds like Freddie... end of story.

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

To the casual fan who might be able to come up with four or five Queen radio hits off the top of their head he probably does sound a lot like Freddie.  He sounds a lot less like Freddie when he's not trying to on some of his other stuff on the web.  He would do a fine job singing the songs I'm sure, he and any one of 10,000 other performers who can sing effectively in those registers. The hyperbole in the comments on YouTube is through the roof.  People who have invested enough time and love and money in Queen over the years to be capable of some discernment are not exactly who the band are embracing with 'The Queen Extravaganza', so they're accomplishing precisely what reality ventures are meant to, which is to secure essentially indiscriminate and disproportionate investments in strangers in order to sell tickets and records.
