Rumour has it that Brian May approached Adam Lambert directly to sing with the band at the EMAs. Adam Lambert has tweeted:
"Make sure you tune in to the EMA's this Sunday." and
"@Silliegirl oh I'm going to be there and more. ;)"
If he is I want "The show must go on"!!

If he is, I want:

1.  A loaded .38 caliber handgun.  One bullet will be sufficient.
2.  A noose
3.  A straight razor and short sleeves
4.  Mass amounts of uncut heroin
5.  A large plastic bag
6.  A closed garage and a running engine

Ha Ha! Proof is in the pudding an' all that!  Freddie is irreplaceable but think Adam Lambert is the right person for a guest slot. He can sing and hit the high notes.  Sunday might just surprise you!!

I agree. sounds terrible (Especially since it's not related to some b.s. contest show content.

...really... searching this guy out?

a queen for queen...

eh i just dunno.. whatever. If I hear the Red Special again, that's all that's really gonna count

He fucked up "We Are The Champions" on American Idol--so I'm kinda dreading this (nothing against Adam personally).

Just goes to show once and for all how much Queen (ie Brian May) is out of touch... alienating old fans and making young people look at them like desperate old men from the 70's

Its actually starting to get upsetting....

Well guys, just wait it out until Sunday's passed. Wouldn't want to look like a bunch of fools getting angrily excited over nothing again now, would you? ;-)

Even if it is bad, it will be really good.  I've never seen Adam mess up.  He is always perfect.  He's got the voice to handle some of the "delicate" Queen songs so I hope they make use of that rather than going straight to rock and roll screams.  A medley would be nice especially if they could include some non-hits to spice it up.  I wonder how much rehearsal they can get in.  Hope it goes well.

Those of you so against this should remember a song called "Delilah"

Seriously. If Queen and Adam Lambert farted into a microphone for an hour to make an album, it would still be un upgrade over "Delilah" and part of "Hot Space".

great. what is probably bri and rog's final live appearence as Queen will be as a backing band for a runner up from an american karaoke contest.

if brian still can't get on with paul rodgers, at least give tom chaplin a call. a good voice AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST; credibility

When the singer from Keane is seen as the 'credible' alternative, then you know things have definitely gone sour.

And he did a stellar vocal of It's a Hard Life earlier on...
