Watch Kanye Perform Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’


After Kanye West was announced as a Glastonbury headliner, an online petition with more than 133,000 signatures calling for Kanye to be replaced by a “real” rock band appeared, to the chagrin of those who aren't living in the 1970s. West called the petition “an insult to music fans all over the world.” Dave Grohl, who couldn’t perform because of that stupid broken leg (he was replaced by Florence and the Machine), said the petition would only fuel Kanye to create a bigger, better performance, but even Grohl probably didn’t anticipate Kanye breaking out into a cover of Queen’s iconic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” a quintessential classic rock and karaoke-night track. He performed the first verse before moving on to the normally scheduled programming. Watch West channel Freddie Mercury — as well as perform his own “Stronger,” “Power,” “New Slaves," "Heartless," and other songs — below.
