He's just doing a paordy of a Queen song, we've seen this before, even in their damn day the comedy shows must have done a Queen paordy or two, is this insulting? Not really. Will this ever replace the real "We Are The Champions"? No. You shouldn't take such things to heart :) it will drive you mad! Cheers.

Seeing this...I have to wonder now, who has hurt Freddie's image more? That dude Hung (does he actually have the Down-Syndrome?) or the recent version by Crazy Frog? Or Robbie Williams? Or Britney Spears and Beyonce? Or Five? Or Wyclef Jean? Or what?? Or even someone putting on her website "Freddie Mercury is a radioactive squirrel"? Questions over questions. Oops, another 10,000 kids in Africa died while I've been writing all this. Now what is really important, darling?

Hung is funny as hell, I have a few laughs seeing him act a fool. On the other hand, Jan78 is on the mark!

Yes, and every single band that performed at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert has also damaged Freddie's image. I mean, what a travesty! How dare they even ATTEMPT to emulate Freddie's genius!?? That should be against the law. Only Freddie Mercury is allowed to sing Queen songs, and since he's dead...hey, let's just ban the live performance of Queen songs altogether. And PAUL RODGERS!! OMFG!!!!112!1one! Simple. He will be put to death for insulting Freddie. I mean, hasn't he a brain?

LongLostMercury...please. Being a bad musician does not forbid you from covering songs of musicians who are better than you. In fact, covering songs is a TRIBUTE, not a TRAVESTY.

Ok, I dunno who this Hung-guy is? (Never watched Amer. Idol xD)

I've heard about this guy though, who is said ti be one of the worst singers? That he really sucks, and that is why people like him? -I could be wrong - tell me if I am xD


I'm going slightly mad

There's a difference Music Man, a huge difference. Pop stars of today only do it to get more fans. There is money to be made! Tribute bands don't make a lot money, they are doing it for the love of Queens music.

Just goes to show that even in a silly looking leotard, it takes something special to pull it off.
Mind you, I think the kid made a shitload of scratch from this. Hmmm, perhaps leotards and music is the way to go.

I don't know, I see it as a tribute to Freddie not an insult. "Imitation is the greatest form of flattery."

Crazy as it is, Hung has fans. They're cheering him on, not mocking him or the songs he 'sings'. I wouldn't let it upset you. There's no harm done.

It amazes me that so-called fans of a band whose work included so much humor throughout the years continues to be such bitchy, humorless twits about harmless matters such as this.

If it's not bad enough to be funny to you, then don't watch or listen to it. It changes nothing.
