They will have mostly hits I think when they sing the music of Queen on tuesday. I think likely choices will be

Bo Rhap (somebody will attempt it im sure)
Crazy Little Thing
AOBTD
Under Pressure
Youre My Best Friend
Stone Cold Crazy (possibly)
Champions (almost probobly)
Rock You (likely if there is a medly they come up with, judges will look at a sole perfomance of this song as being too easy)
The Show Must Go On
I Want It All
Killer Queen
I Want To Break Free (possibly)

What do you guys think

Apparently there have been arguements over who is going to sing Bohemian Rhapsody.

Rumours that the following were rehearsed when they met the band.......

Ace: We Will Rock You
Kellie: Bo Rhap
Taylor: We Are The Champions
Bucky: Fat Bottomed Girls
Paris :The Show Must Go On

Seems believable to me except for Kellie

check this out:

Just from the narrative, could this mean that the contestants will sing these selections on Tuesday night?

~sigh~ - I had hoped for at least a few less "mainstream" selections.

I was gonna come up with a "should sing"/"will sing" list for another message board, but after seeing this link, I think not.

I agree Sweet Lady, I'd bitch slap my television.

If Kellie Pickler does Bohemian Rhapsody then I might just have to cry.

I'm sorry but there are just some things that are sacred. If you have to do Bohemian Rhapsody at least do it as a group you can't do it all by yourself. Has anyone thought how much they are going to have to cut out to make it an "appropriate" length.

Amen....
I wish no one would do it except Queen...
Because I've yet to see anyone able to pull off Bo Rhap... Especially after the Constantine disaster last year... no offense to anyone.
And if Kellie does it, she'll kill it... and i think Freddies ashes may reincinerate themselves....

I think itd be funny if Taylor Did FBG! :-P

i'm really scared they're gonna ruin all the songs, just like when they did queen mania a few years ago, don't know if anyone saw it, it was on ITV. but all the artists on there pretty much killed every song tehy attempted. not good. :-(

I watched that! I tapped it too, thinking it would be great. Well, the interviews after the show was alright. Some people made me laugh.
