He and James Corden had an epic Queen Frontman Battle.
If anyone in the world was still in any doubt that Adam Lambert is the perfect frontman for Queen, his skit with James Corden on 'The Late Late Show' should settle it for you. Because this week Adam and James had a brilliant sass-fuelled Front Man Battle.
Adam Lambert and James Corden go 'head to head'
On 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' last night (February 2nd 2017), James made the mistake in getting a little cocky about his favourite band of all time and its current frontman, Adam Lambert. 'I'm not saying I'd be a better frontman than him, I'm just saying I think I'd be a better frontman than him', said James. 'That's all I'm saying.'

Crowds of Queen fans gathered as the National Heritage plaque was unveiled in Feltham on Thursday morning.
Mercury – birth name Farrokh Bulsara – lived in the pebble-dash semi at 22 Gladstone Avenue from the age of 17, when his family emigrated from Zanzibar in the autumn of 1964. While he was living there, he met his future Queen band-mates Brian May and Roger Taylor.
Closely followed by Abba's 'Gold'.
Queen's 'Greatest Hits' compilation has officially become the UK's biggest-selling album of all time, beating the likes of Abba, The Beatles and Michael Jackson. The revelation was revealed in a list launched by the UK's Official Album Chart as part of the chart's 60th anniversary.
Queen's 'Greatest Hits' is the best selling album in the UK
60 albums for 60 years, the top albums of the UK charts have been revealed with Freddie Mercury's band Queen topping the list with 6.1 million copies of their 1981 compilation 'Greatest Hits' sold since its release. It's not the first landmark moment for this epic release either; in 2014, it became the first album to sell 6 million in the UK. The follow-up, 'Greatest Hits II', entered into the 60 biggest selling albums list at number 10.

Cohen had been in talks to play Mercury, but left the biopic after disagreements on the film’s direction.
Queen guitarist Brian May has hit out at Sacha Baron Cohen, calling him an ‘arse’ over his recent comments about the planned Freddie Mercury biopic. Last month Cohen had said he left the film because the remaining members of Queen wanted to make a family friendly biopic, while the actor wanted something grittier.
Brian May has called Sacha Baron Cohen an ‘arse’.
“Sacha became an arse,” May told the Mail on Sunday. “We had some nice times with Sacha kicking around ideas but he went off and told untruths about what happened. Why would he go away and say that we didn’t want to make a gritty film?"

Roger Taylor and John Paul Jones played along on a cover of Queen's hit 'Under Pressure'.
They were forced to cancel their two Wembley enormo-gigs as well as their headline Glastonbury performance after Dave Grohl broke his leg earlier this summer, but Foo Fighters made their triumphant return to the UK with the first of three shows at the Milton Keynes Bowl – and they brought along some pretty big names to help them celebrate.
Performing the entire two-and-a-half-hour gig from a huge motorised throne, embossed with the Foo Fighters logo, Grohl announced to the crowd on Saturday night (September 5th): “We came back for you! We waited a long time to be here.”

The singer believes that being able to change his parents' lives makes it all worth it.
He may be one of the biggest pop stars of the moment, but it's not the money, or the awards, or even the screaming fans that make the climb to the top worth all the hard work. Rather, Ed Sheeran says the biggest reward of fame is his ability to change his parents' lives for the better.

The 'Thinking Out Loud' singer told The Mirror that the highlight of his career so far is "being able to really pay my parents – not just financially – but being able to give them the things they wouldn't have ever dreamed of...

Sacha Baron Cohen is not involved - in any capacity - with the Freddie Mercury biopic.
We know what you're thinking: Sacha Baron Cohen, the master of disguises and impressions, would have been the perfect actor to play Freddie Mercury. But, alas, it wasn't meant to be. Brian May, the guitarist of Queen, has confirmed Cohen is not involved in any film project relating to the life of Mercury.
