The documentary features brand-new interviews with Adam, his parents Leila and Eber, and Queen founding members Brian May and Roger Taylor, as well as Bohemian Rhapsody’s Rami Malek, and Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins.
Adam will also serve as guest mentor on American Idol which airs the night before on Sunday April 28. The season 8 alum will be on hand to help the Top 8 tackle the Queen catalog.

The contestants will also perform movie themed duets. America will vote, and by the end of the night, two singers will be eliminated (or possibly one will be saved by the judges, Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan)
In this clip, Brian May and Adam Lambert talk about performing together for the first time at the American Idol finale.
