This was WAAAAAAY before I discovered Queen...

About 2 summers ago, there was a talent show on Fox, where people would be made over to look like their favorite musicians, and then perform a song by them. There was a guy that did Freddie Mercury! I think he sang "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions." I guess I didn't appreciate it very much at the time, cause I had no idea who the hell Freddie Mercury was. I just remember thinking about thermometers (...you know... "mercury"...)

I remember that!!!!! I really didn't think he did a good job, though... Great effort anyways...

I hardly remember it enough to say whether he did a good job or not. I think the woman who did Tina Turner won that night.

I don't think I watched that, I just remember reading about it in In Touch or some magazine like that. Was it really two years ago? I could've sworn it was more recent than that.

Hehe... I always used to associate 'Mercury' with the planet. 'Cuz I was a bit of a space geek when I was little.
Enjoyed visits to the planetarium and everything. \m/

Yes, my first impression of my favorite singer was: THERMOMETERS!
