American Idol contestants to perform Queen songs, classic movie duets

The American Idol top 8 will be under pressure on Sunday's episode as they take on the songs on Queen.

Alejandro Aranda, Laci Kaye Booth, Walker Burroughs, Wade Cota, Laine Hardy, Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, Alyssa Raghu, and Madison VanDenburg will perform from the legendary band's catalogue, mentored by none other than American Idol alum and current Queen frontman Adam Lambert. (He and the band will also be the focus of an ABC special, The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story, airing Monday, April 29 at 8 p.m.)

Following their Queen performances — and critiques from judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan — the top 8 will pair up to perform classic movie duets.
