Tonight on American Idol 2019 the Top 8 will pay tribute to the legendary band Queen. They will also be pairing up with each other to perform duets from movies.
Also on hand as guest mentor is Idol alum Adam Lambert who is currently touring with Queen.
And once again, you will be voting in real time, America, so your votes are more important than ever as the two people with the least amount of votes by the end of the night will be going home unless the judges use their one save to keep one of them around.
The “American Idol” finalists continue their journey in the competition, paying tribute to one of the world’s most iconic bands, Queen. In this episode, each contestant will take on a song from the legendary Queen catalogue, before partnering up for classic movie duet performances.
