Michael Johns sings double single of We Will Rock You/We are the ChampionsHere's a commentary from Yahoo on Michael Johns' performance. Nice compliment about Freddie..

Michael Johns - "We Will Rock You / We are the Champions," Queen

Michael's mom said he was super-competitive in everything. Doesn't that mean he should be trying really hard to be amazing every week here? Or maybe he actually thinks he's already doing that? Michael went back to the Queen catalog because the one time he's really shone this season is when he did their "Bohemian Rhapsody." I still don't think these two songs should always be played together as a double-single. Still, for what it is, Michael does a decent job with it.

Randy: "Finally, you believe in yourself and you use that big old voice you got ... That was the best performance, for me, since you've been on this show."

Paula: "For any time that any one of us have every said you haven't found your right song, well we can shut our mouths on this one. This is your ... shining moment and I'm so proud of you ... It was fantastic."

Simon: "This is the first time with you I saw star potential, because you just got it right ... You look like a front person, you were confident, you performed well. For me, it was the only memorable performance of the night so far."

Jason: "Freddie Mercury is definitely a good fit for you, which is an amazing accomplishment in itself as usually he's way too much for most vocalists to handle. You did a really nice job with this. I wasn't blown away by it like I was "Bohemian Rhapsody" in Hollywood, but this is what you need to be doing and this is how you need to be performing if you want to pull ahead in this race."
