The Academy shared the news last night (18th February) by quoting the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ lyrics “Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?” and sharing a brief 15-second teaser video set to the music of ‘We Will Rock You’.
In a highly enthusiastic Instagram post, Queen guitarist Brian May wrote: “After much drama (drama is what it’s all about, right ?!) we have been engaged to Tear it Up, in person, live and dangerous, one night only, at the Academy Awards ceremony. Thank you, Oscars people – we will make you proud! And, folks … Be There!!! Bri”
It’s currently unclear what song, or songs, Queen + Lambert will perform at the star-studded 91st Academy Awards ceremony at the Dolby Theatre, Los Angeles.
Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody is up for five Oscars including ‘Best motion picture of the year’ and ‘Best performance by an actor in a leading role’ for Rami Malek’s portrayal of Freddie Mercury.
