Everyone’s gone gaga about Queen, with the Bohemian Rhapsody biopic setting box offices alight and its accompanying soundtrack charting high around the world.
Cristina Ramos tapped into the excitement when she performed Queen’s signature tune for her opening number Monday night on America’s Got Talent: The Champions. Ramos didn’t try imitate Freddie Mercury. The Spain’s Got Talent champ hit “Bohemian Rhapsody” with her very own flair… and some wild rock opera flourishes.
Chatting with the judges ahead of her performance, Ramos explained that this was her first trip to the United States. With her first-up effort, Ramos had the crowd — and judges — on their feet and made sure it was a trip to remember. “It was spectacular, your voice is off the charts,” judge Simon Cowell enthused. “This was unbelievable. I mean, really, really unbelievable.”
The four judges loved it. Freddie Mercury would’ve loved it too. Watch below.
