Queen's performance with Kris Allen and Adam Lambert on the Season 8 "American Idol" finale ranks as one of the series' all-time greatest moments, so expect more greatness when Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor return to perform with "Idol" top six finalists next Wednesday, April 25.

Additionally, expect some great Queen covers the following evening, when Queen's official tribute band, the Queen Extravaganza--which was actually assembled via Brian and Roger's own nationwide, "Idol"-esque talent search--performs on the top six "Idol" results show on April 26.

According to Queen's PR folks, Adam Lambert, who will be filling in for the late Freddie Mercury this summer at several overseas Queen gigs--isn't set to guest with Queen next week (he'll actually be performing on "Jimmy Kimmel" next Thursday). But that doesn't mean all you Glamberts shouldn't set your DVRs. Wednesday's show should still feature some killer Queenliness; in fact, I'm already imagining the top six forming a pyramid and reenacting the "Bohemian Rhapsody" video (which--here's a bit of synergistic trivia for you--was actually lensed in 1975 by former "Idol" director Bruce Gowers!).

Additionally, USA Today reports that Katy Perry--who has been known to dress up like Freddie Mercury at costume galas and has often cited Queen as the band that changed her life--will also be performing on next Thursday's results show. Will Katy rock that Freddie 'stache next week--or even sit in with the Extravaganza? Watch this space.

considering how eloquent Brian is, I'm surprised he seems to have forgotten the meaning of the word "integrity"

I'd pay money to hear Phil Phillips singing Under Pressure, It's Late, Keep Yourself Alive and a few others.

Well.
Can ANYONE on the USA actually record or capture the HD transmission stream for us please?

Since most of the major file sharing sites went down in February, all of my usual sources for obtaining HD rips of Musical guests on TV shows have not been updated with anything new :(

Queen is on American Idol on Wednesday, though not with Adam Lambert, and the next night the Queen Extravaganza is going to be there, and so is Katy Perry.

You're welcome.

I am looking forward to seeing these shows! I think it will be fun and I am always glad when Brian and Roger are on TV in the USA.

But I am not really very interested in any of the singers on AI this year. I watch mostly to see which songs they are choosing, to see Ryan Seacrest, who is flawlessly good as host, and to see what S. Tyler is wearing (and JLo has finally worn something that has upstaged him ... the silver ribbon dress).

I think that when singing as a group, this group of contestants sounds pretty good. I hope they do some great sounding harmonies with the Queen songs.

The producer's of the program are having a Queen night.
Because of this they have asked BM and RT to be part of it.
More than anything they are probably doing it because they enjoy playing, they are also doing it to raise awareness of the Extravaganza. I really don't think money is the motivation.

It's Queen night, they are on the show. As with the live dates with Adam Lambert. If you don't like the idea, find something else to do.
