Queen with vocalist Adam Lambert set the Oscars stage on fire with their opening performance. The band started the show in honor of Bohemian Rhapsody being nominated for many awards, including Best Picture.
Guitarist Brian May took to social media earlier today to show how he was preparing, appropriate tee and all. And his prep certainly paid off.
Before show, Lambert talked about how performing at the awards show with the band was a dream of his. Check out a video of that below.

Damn, was really hoping the #Oscars would just be a 3 hour Queen concert. There’s always next year.
