Adam Lambert Queen Brian May

The American Idol star has been working with the British rockers since 2011, and their Queen + Adam Lambert summer tour stopped at the festival, the only U.K. date on the trek, to headline the closing night on Sunday (12Jun16).

That same day, 49 people were killed and 53 injured at a gay nightclub Pulse in Florida in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, and the gay singer made sure to pay tribute to the victims during the performance.

Before a rendition of Queen's 1986 track Who Wants To Live Forever, Adam, acting as frontman, told the crowd, "This song is dedicated to those who lost their lives in Orlando, Florida, and anyone who has been a victim of senseless violence or hatred.

Adele Calls Lgbt Fans 'Soulmates' As She Breaks Down Onstage


Adele Queen Adam Lambert Brian May Roger Taylor

The Hello singer was performing in Belgium less than 24 hours after 49 people were killed at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida by American-born shooter Omar Mateen, 29, in the worst U.S. terror attack since 9/11. Mateen also wounded 53 other partygoers in the mass shooting.

After opening the show with hit songs Hello and Hometown Glory, the 28 year-old singer paid tribute to the victims by saying: “I’d like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando, and at Pulse nightclub last night," reports The Huffington Post.

Explaining why she felt so affected by the atrocity, Adele added: "The LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex) community... they’re like my soulmates, since I was really young, so I’m really moved by it."

Brian May Upset With Donald Trump Over We Are The Champions Anthem


Brian May Queen

The property tycoon walked onstage for his victory speech to the rock classic, and blew up Queen and May's social media accounts.

"I've had an avalanche of complaints - some of which you can see in our 'Letters' page - about Donald Trump using our We Are The Champions track as his 'theme' song on USA TV," the guitarist wrote on his website. "This is not an official Queen statement, but I can confirm that permission to use the track was neither sought nor given.

"We are taking advice on what steps we can take to ensure this use does not continue. Regardless of our views on Mr. Trump's platform, it has always been against our policy to allow Queen music to be used as a political campaigning tool."

Celine Dion: 'I Thought I Was Prepared For Billboard Music Awards'


Celine Dion The Billboard Music Awards Queen Madonna Stevie Wonder Prince

The 48-year-old singer performed Queen's The Show Must Go On at the annual event on Sunday night (22May16), where she was also honoured with the Billboard Icon Award. It was a bittersweet occasion for Celine, who lost her husband Rene in January (16) before her brother Daniel died just days after, and she became overwhelmed when her son Rene-Charles presented her with the accolade.

"Normally I feel pretty much in control," she explained to E! News. "I don't necessarily like surprises. I like to be prepared; I thought I was. From a mom who was prepared with her children at the funerals, to tell them that it's fine, to be strong and all that, so for me I was like, 'OK, I'm going to sing my favourite song,' and they want to give me that award? Oh, my God. It's not the reason why I'm doing that. It's not the reason why I'm here.

"But they're giving me a very, very important... iconic award... for my children when I'm gone, these are the moments that will stay. These are the moments that will be remembered, I think. For my husband, The Show Must Go On, his favourite song that I do every night, (was why) I said 'OK, I'll go and it's going to work.'"

Celine Dion Emotional As Son Presents Her With Billboard Icon Award


Celine Dion Queen

Rene lost his battle with cancer in January (16), aged 73, but he was clearly on Celine's mind as she took the stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday (22May16) to sing a cover of Queen's epic hit The Show Must Go On, which she recently revealed had always been her husband's motto. She was accompanied by a full orchestra, including star violinist Lindsey Stirling, for the powerful performance.

Guest presenter Seal then invited Celine over to the podium and surprised her by introducing her eldest son, 15-year-old Rene-Charles, to present the superstar with the Billboard Icon Award, which recognises her contribution to the music industry over the past three decades.

Breaking down as she delivered her acceptance speech, Celine apologised for her state of emotions, saying, "I'm so sorry. I'm sorry for crying. I want to be so strong for my family and kids and I didn't expect (Rene-Charles to be there)."

Celine Dion: 'My Husband Insisted The Show Must Go On'


Celine Dion The Billboard Music Awards Queen

The singer lost her manager husband Rene Angelil in January (16) after he died of throat cancer aged 73. Rene battled three bouts of cancer, which at times forced his wife of 21 years to put her career on hold to care for her spouse.

Despite her heartbreak, Celine explains Rene insisted "the show must go on" and now that he has passed she wants to prove to her children that their mother remains strong.

"Rene always insisted the show must go on," the mother-of-three said in an interview with People. "You know what, I'm 48 years old and I lost the love of my life.

Adam Lambert: 'There's No Romance With Sam Smith'

The American Idol alumnus was linked to British singer Sam after the pair was spotted on a night out in New York in March (16). However Adam explains it was far from the romantic rendezvous the press made it out to be.

“I saw the headlines and wrote him, ‘Oh my god, they think we’re dating!’” he laughed to Britain’s Metro’s newspaper. “To be honest, we’re not that close but the little interaction we’ve had, he’s lovely, such a sweet guy.

“Sam was out with a group of his friends, I was out with a group of mine, and we were all drinking and having a laugh.”

'Sacha Baron Cohen Is An A***': Brian May Is Brutally Honest About Comedian's Departure From Freddie Mercury Biopic


Sacha Baron Cohen Brian May Freddie Mercury Queen

Brian May is painfully truthful about his opinion of Sacha Baron Cohen after the comedian pulled out of the Freddie Mercury biopic over disagreements about the content of the movie. When Cohen suggested that producers wanted something that was essentially a watered down reality, May wasn't happy.

Sacha Baron CohenSacha Baron Cohen branded an a***

'Grimsby' star Sacha Baron Cohen could well have made the perfect Freddie Mercury in the Queen biopic that's currently in the works. However, he decided to walk away from the project once he realised that it wouldn't be as candid as he'd have liked. He opened up about the conflict on The Howard Stern Show, claiming that May was 'not a great movie producer' and only interested to 'protect their legacy as a band'.

The Borat funnyman had been set to play flamboyant frontman Freddie Mercury in the film he was helping to develop, but he walked away from the project in 2013.

The British actor has since claimed he quit over artistic differences, revealing he clashed with the surviving Queen members over how the movie should depict the more salacious aspects of the late singer's rock 'n' roll lifestyle.

"They wanted to protect their legacy as a band," he said during a candid radio interview on The Howard Stern Show last month (Mar16).
