Queen boasted about Adam Lambert, excited the singer would be joining them. The enthralling emotion was mutual and these two forces rocked the iHeartRadio Music Festival Friday night. Lambert stunned the crowds and worked the audience into a frenzy when he joined Queen singing Bohemian Rhapsody, and a multitude of other band hits.

Donned in black, filled with musical prowess, Lambert ruled the stage with his presence and vocals. Glamberts were thrilled to see their iconic singer mark the stage with legendary Queen. What makes Queen so super-cool is their response to the Lambert that is Adam. Brian May stated that Lambert has a “beautiful tone” that complements the band’s material. Additionally, May added that Lambert “has the passion,” the humor and an enjoyable level of campiness. Fans would agree wholeheartedly.

Glamberts have been following the life and story of Lambert since his appearance on idol. The Whataya Want From Me singer has become a dominate force in the music industry. From talent, poise and stardom, Lambert shines as a key advocate for equal rights and is a role model for the gay community. His strength and power are elated by amazing groups like Queen, who welcome his talent to send iHeartRadio audiences into a screaming roar.

In 2009 rumors started surfacing that Lambert would be the perfect touch to Queen when the band parted ways with Paul Rodgers. Lambert brought a certain sense of nostalgia to the group, he had the Freddie Mercury attitude with the pipes. He could fulfill a void the band had been missing since the early 90s. Roger Tyler stated when Lambert was on American Idol, he was watching closely, stunned by a talent that connected with his musical soul.

Glamberts that have been following Lambert for many years remain dedicated enamored by his kindness, connection with the crowds and soul. He has reached the peak of his mighty mountain, created by his own talent, thanking no other than the fans who motivate him to continue on. The Glamberts took to social media to call Friday night’s performance epic, legendary and brilliant.

The rising icon with the legend make beautiful music.

Reviewing the footage, Lambert was alive! He brought all of his dynamics for his hardcore fans and rocked the night away with Queen. Even people who may not be die-hard fans will enjoy the enthusiasm during the sets as the star singer collaborated with the amazingly talented band. Within just four years of walking out on the American Idol stage, Lambert has formed a fanbase around the globe, his ability to connect has created a demand for his presence at concert venues.

Katy Perry even took a moment to give props to Lambert and no hit to Katy, but Lambert with Queen brought the house down with their performance. Katy and Chris Brown each had their own time at the mic and showed their excitement to be at one the year’s most popular venues. Sir Elton John took the stage and speak of a legend! With hits stemming from Bennie and the Jets, Home Again and The Bitch is Back – Elton John left a trail of screaming fans. Honestly, one can easily state the big winners of the night were Elton John, Queen and Adam Lambert and the moment when TLC joined J. Cole on stage was pretty spectacular.

What’s next for Lambert? He will be heading to Oklahoma to perform live at the Winstar Casino. Fans can visit the site for ticket information and tickets go on sale on the 27. Queen and Adam Lambert rocked the iHeartRadio Music Festival last night! Fans can only expect more amazing performance for future dates. What was your favorite set?

    I flew from Singapore via London just to see Adam Lambert front Queen again. Well worth the time and money. This is a match made in Heaven and Adam’s Who Wants to Live Forever was mindbogglingly epic. What a voice and what emotion! Bravo!

    To see Adam Lambert in concert with Queen (and please a full length concert because I’m greedy!) is high on my bucket list in this life – just awe inspiring!

    Adam & Queen Wow! The Legends Has Come To Life Again.

    Well written article and thanks so much for the positive comments about Adam and Queen performance. I saw it live and it was incredible. The whole venue ROCKED.

    Adam Lambert and Queen were amazing and brought the house down. I loved “Who Wants to Live Forever”, brought tears to my eyes. Adam sang it so beautifully and from the heart.

    This is the first time other than American Idol where I have seen Adam perform with so many “A-list” music stars. After seeing Adam’s performance, the others seemed mediocre. Katy Perry was out of tune the entire time. Although Elton John’s songs were great, his performance is the same every time. Chris Brown sounded nasally and he was off key. Even the catchy songs of these performers didn’t ignite my enthusiasm over the video stream. In comparison, Adam’s voice, personality and performance quality soars and puts the others to shame.

    Great article, love it. Queen + Adam Lambert performance was phenomenal.

  9. Judy   September 22, 2013 at 6:24 am

    Adam & Queen’s performance was absolutely stellar.Adam’s performance of WWTLF is perhaps the best I’ve ever heard it sung,the emotion and the depth of his vocals were unbelievable. Also loved Crazy little Thing called Love,his lower register slays !

  10. Lisa Imbruglia   September 22, 2013 at 2:13 am

    Woops forgot… Queen liked Adam so much that they did 6 concerts last year with him in Kiev, Poland, Russia and 3 in London.. and to the person above bemoaning the fact that they didnt use Marc Martel.. he is currently touring doing a show where he gets to sound and look just like Freddie which is not necessarily the aim of Brian and Roger in their show.. they are enjoying bringing a freshness to their sound and older bones… they dont want to just mimic their former sound which leaves them nowhere to move into their future..

  11. Lisa Imbruglia   September 22, 2013 at 1:51 am

    sat here and watched almost the whole concert.. so pleased I did.. Loved Elton, Muse, Keith Urban, Katy but my definite favourites of the night were Queen and Adam.. as a long time Queen fan and more recent (from idol) Adam fan, I agree that Queen have recognised a great talent in Adam.. why would they otherwise use him and love him so much.. it’s great to see the reviews being so in favour of him as well.. Let’s hope that this translates to his further career and finally some hard out plays of his lesser known songs on the radio.. like Cuckoo and Pop That Lock.. they will really get the listeners see how he can be.

  12. rita4ka89   September 22, 2013 at 1:04 am

    Thank you for a brilliant article! Yes, Adam has huge fanbase who loves him so so much! He deserves more recognition, cuz he really the best vocalist nowadays!

    • Angelina Bouc   September 24, 2013 at 12:35 pm

      Rita indeed! The one thing that bowls me over time? The admiration and love for Adam from this fans. That alone tells even a newbie how awesome of a person he truly is! Thank you for your comment.

  13. Yvette   September 22, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Awesome write up..Brian May sent me here! Yes, Adam Lambert is Extraordinary Vocals and Stage Performance and with Queen it is a DREAM TEAM COME TO LIFE! Adam can take a stage alone, sit on a stool without any music and His Vocals Will Jaw-Drop, on stage with Queen, They Blew the Roof Off the MGM! Adam was created for this and Queen was just waiting! I pray they will do a USA tour, because I know it would SEll OUT! Adam is an Amazing person, the most Humble of people, and kind!. Then he has More talent then anyone in the industry and the Sexxxiest man Alive. He has it all..Phenomenal!
    Time to Spin Adams songs and give the people what they want!!! Are you getting a clue yet..People LOVE HIM!!

    • Angelina Bouc   September 24, 2013 at 12:37 pm

      I agree, they really brought the house down! Adam has changed the face of music. He didn’t do it from yelling or making a fuss, he simply funneled his tunnel into a vision. Thank you for your comment!

  14. Russ Armani   September 21, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    Adam lambert is no good at all. When Queen will stop using these half talented singers. Mark Martel is ages ahead of this screamer….

    • Cathysidol   September 22, 2013 at 12:30 am

      Respect your opinion BUT Adam Lambert trended in US and WorldWide for 2hrs last night AFTER his performance with Queen .(No small feat)I think that gives you a bit of an insight on how many people across the World slightly disagree with you, Talent is something Adam has in spades and Brian May and Roger would recognize that, now wouldn’t they ?? since they had the Great Freddie Mercury and now they WANT Adam .Their opinion matters , MUCH Respect TO QUEEN”S CHOICE.needed here…….

    • Terry   September 22, 2013 at 1:18 am

      Oh dear. there’s one in every crowd isnt there. Brian May, Roger Taylor, Nile Rodgers, Slash, Meatloaf, Elton John, Avicii, Nate Reuss, Katy Perry and a host of other artists, music producers, industry experts, tv producers and others all admire Adam for his amazing vocal ability and for his awesome personality. Your comment not only disrespects Adam but the opinions and intelligence of dozens of excellent artists/legends etc in the music business and entertainment field. If you don’t like Adam’s style or whatever that’s fair enough. For example, I don’t like Adele’s style of music BUT I will admit she can sing and has a lot of talent. Like Adam, her talent is obvious & if you try to pretend it doesn’t exist you just look silly. Simply ranting that he’s “no good at all” and a “half-talented screamer” isn’t a critique. It’s a dummy spit. Mark Martel does a reasonable job of singing Queen songs but that doesn’t mean no-one else can perform them LOL. It just means there are lots of talented people out there to be appreciated and enjoyed, including Queen, Mark and Adam. Get over it and just enjoy the gift these artists give you.

      • Yvette   September 23, 2013 at 5:10 am

        Brilliant response! Agree with everything! Adam Lambert OWNS THE THROWN!

    • magsmagenta (@magsmagenta)   September 22, 2013 at 8:03 am

      If you like Marc Martel so much you can always see him in the Queen Extravaganza, Where he does a respectable impersonation of Freddie. Brian and Roger obviously think that’s the best place for him. The seem to prefer to work with Adam in their own live shows though, at least for the time being, until another 30 or so years have gone by anyway so another singer of Adams calibre has shown up for them to play with I think you’re stuck with Adam.
      Thank goodness for the rest of us it isn’t your choice.

  15. Cathysidol   September 21, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    I was in awe of the” Lambert that was Adam”, especially Who Wants to Live Forever! (freakin loved that little play on words btw) hope you don’t mind but I gotta tweet that !LOL . He just rocks the stage, so much talent , so much charisma frankly I had to make myself breath. Yea I luv the guy and a true fan but he deserves the accolades, he is the whole package , I bow down to the greatness that is Queen and Adam Lamber on that staget!! Please a mini tour Brian Roger and Adam!!!

    great article and enjoyed the reading. However I don’t think when TLC joined J. Cole was anything spectacular. Personally I was bored of the whole act. But J. Cole is talented and likeable.

    • Angelina Bouc   September 21, 2013 at 8:28 pm

      Maybe I am giving my age (lol) but I was young when TLC came onto the scene and really liked the messages in their songs. It was nice to see them reconnect since it’s been many years! Thank you so much for your kind comment 🙂 My favorite would have to be Queen + Adam, Elton John and CJ Cole. The rest was good as well. It was a strong festival this year.

  18. NAN   September 21, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    Adam Lambert’s Who Wants to Live Forever- absolutely gorgeous!

  19. Bobs   September 21, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Loved, loved , loved it !
