Adam Lambert to become lead singer for QUEEN

Adam Lambert says he’s been chosen to replace Freddie Mercury as the new lead singer of the legendary rock band Queen! I completely see this as a great spot for Lambert to be. The style, the voice, the passion he brings to a concert stage really seems to fit the mold of QUEEN.

“The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie and the band by singing some f—ing great songs. It’s to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of,” Adam shared. Lambert has praised his fellow gay entertainer Mercury as a great inspiration on his own music and career.

However, the humble performer insisted he in no way wants to suggest that he could ever fill Mercury’s stylish shoes, admitting, “There’s no intention in my mind of replacing Freddie. That’s impossible. The way I’m choosing to view it is that it’s a great honor and one I’m in no way going to shirk”

In the finale of American Idol 2009, he rocked with Queen (and eventual winner Kris Allen). Check out the video above.

Do you think Adam can handle the job?
