POV: Queen and ‘American Idol’

Being someone as myself who follows Queen’s music over the years, I couldn’t miss this special episode of American Idol in which each of the contestants covered a Queen song. Some of the choices were obvious (“Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You”) while others took me by surprise (“Somebody to Love,” “Innuendo”). Perhaps the best interpretation of that evening was contestant Chris’ take on the song “Innuendo” (an underrated masterpiece) because 1: it’s not one of the popular Queen songs 2: he chose to do something very challenging, maybe a bit more than “Bohemian Rhapsody.” To the judges and fans credits, he still remained in the pack.
