Oooh I didn't like Paul Young's performance of "Radio Ga Ga" at the Freddie Tribute Concert.

Definitely not the voice I had in mind for it.

At the same concert-- George Michael just TOTALLY messed up the words for "'39". Ah, well...

Agreed, my vote goes to 5ive.
What was worse, though, was that my little brother liked 5ive at the time, and seemed to think 'We Will Rock You' was a 5ive song. That's just wrong...

the guy who sang WATC at PATP was indeed pop idol winner Will young and as far as pop goes he isnt bad, wasnt a fan of his version though. and... 5ive's WWRY was crap (which most agree),
i dont understand the liza minelli WATC at the tribute, y her? i mean dont put her as the finale,
i didnt like elton's TSMGO but i think that was bcoz i was expecting a match up to freddie's performance of the song which is much much more than anyone could hope to matching up to,
and and u guys in u.k at children in nedd in november last year at the beginning someone sang WWRY and guess who it was, SHANE RITCHIE!!!!!!!!!!
i shant bother telling you how dire it was

OH GOD Lauryn Hill did "Bo Rhap"?! That's just as bad as the version of "The Show Must Go On" in Moulin Rouge...

Don't dis Moulin Rouge's cover of TSMGO. Keep in mind, it's a rather obscure (to understate it) song here in the US, and a lot of people must have gotten a new taste of Queen from it (being that it's not WWRY or WATC...)

Yeah, but coming from my point of view, to hear TSMGO in MR was quite horrific, in my opinion at least.

Sporty spice i think did a version of Bohrap which Queen never allowed them to release i think? That must have been pretty bad.

5 Worst:

1. Sheer Heart Attack - James Labrie (Dream Theater)

2. Tie Your Mother Down - Lemmy Kilmister and Ted Nugent

3. We Will Rock You - 5ive

4. We Are the Champions - Will Young

5. Radio Ga Ga - Paul Young


Freddie: "Yes, we'll have a great big cock fly over the crowd!"

Roadies: "Yeah! Great Idea!"
