There was a surprise for those attending the Queen + Adam Lambert concert in Sydney Australia today. None other than Lady Gaga joined Adam and the band on stage to sing “Another One Bites The Dust.” Definitely an epic moment!
Check out the performance below. Sparks were definitely flying between Gaga and Adam and Queen…
ETA: Yeah…Gaga could have dialed it back a bit. Her performance was a bit of mess, but so what? Lady Gaga, Queen and Adam Lambert are likely a combo we’ll never see again. It was a fun, impromptu performance on a song that is more or less a throwaway to begin with. It’s not like she sang solo on “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The Queen purists who are reportedly upset (per comments) will get over it.
Lady Gaga and Queen, each performing concerts in Australia over the past week, first met up when Adam, Brian May and Roger Taylor attended the pop singer’s recent concert in Perth.
Gaga instagrammed a heartfelt message after the show, “Me and Brian May from QUEEN. They came tonight to the artRAVE and I’m so PROUD of Adam Lambert singing with them. Made me cry during Dope when I saw them all sitting there. I thought about Freddie.”
After today’s surprise performance, Gaga, obviously thrilled to have the opportunity to perform with one of her major musical influences (Her stage name is a play on the Queen song “Radio Gaga”) tweeted, “I just played with Queen I’m the happiest girl alive! #QAL”
The singer also instagrammed a few photos.
Adam also instagrammed photos with captions that captured his own excitement after joining forces on stage with one of his favorite pop stars.
“This hot GAGA moment. @ladygaga @queenwillrock”
“So much fun tonight! @ladygaga”
