Freddie Mercury Reacts To Kanye West’s Glastonbury Performance Of Bohemian Rhapsody


As we’ve told you before, the so-called ‘World’s Greatest Living Rock Star’ (in his own words), Kanye West, played the Glastonbury Festival in the UK last weekend. His performance met with mixed reviews, but one part in particular came in for heavy criticism – the bit where Kanye tried to sing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. It comes as no surprise that Kanye didn’t exactly nail this performance, turning one of the most revered songs in rock history into nothing short of a poor quality karaoke number.

The song was, of course, most famously performed live by the late, great Freddie Mercury. Freddie is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest live performers who has ever taken to the stage, if the not THE greatest. So how would he react to Kanye’s warbling attempt to cover his most famous song if he were still around? Well, the Internet was quick to provide the answer and it’s freakin’ hilarious.
