Me neither

Looking at wikipedia it says it's from their 1980 album The Game, peaking at no.11 on the UK singles chart.
It's also on the Greatest Hits collection.
I'd have thought a 'greatest hit' would have to reach top 5 or top 10 at least

In fact Queen should easily have enough top 10's to fill a Greatest Hits album without having to include a No 11

The PVR guy has arrived. I just can't abide the commercial breaks.
Queen medley: What a mess.
Jessica, Bohemian Rhapsody. Yikes, she can sing, but that wasn't much fun.
Skylar. I have to say, she never seems to get it wrong. Always so assured. She could win this thing!

First round:
1. Elise ‘I Want It All’
2. Skylar ‘The Show Must Go On’
3. Joshua ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’
4. Phillip ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’
5. Hollie ‘Save Me’
6. Jessica ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

Second round:
1. Hollie ‘The Climb’
2. Joshua ‘Ready For Love’
3. Jessica ‘Dance With My Father’
4. Skylar ‘Tattoos on this Town’
5. Phillip ‘The Stone’
6. Elise ‘Bold As Love’

Combined:
1. Hollie ‘2: The Climb’
2. Joshua ‘2: Ready For Love’
3. Jessica ‘2: Dance With My Father’
4. Elise ‘1: I Want It All’
5. Skylar ‘1: The Show Must Go On’
6. Joshua ‘1: Crazy Little Thing Called Love’
7. Skylar ‘2: Tattoos on this Town’
8. Phillip ‘2: The Stone’
9. Phillip ‘1: Fat Bottomed Girls’

From the looks of it, I thought Joshua was overall the best tonight.
And I thought Phillip was overall the worst tonight, will he be bottom two? Pffft yeah right.

Missed so much as didn't know it started early so only got end of ITV2+1 show.

From clips, looks like Jessica was the best. I always love Philip and Hollie's Climb was great.

I'd have thought a 'greatest hit' would have to reach top 5 or top 10 at least

In fact Queen should easily have enough top 10's to fill a Greatest Hits album without having to include a No 11
It got to number 5 in Netherlands, loads of their songs got to high in the charts all over the world,but never made it big time on the UK or USA.

Ok after watching the top 6 show it clearly showed who the BEST singer is.

1 - Hollie is the best singer in the competition. Her standing ovation was well deserved unlike someone else's where they should not have been given at all.
2 - Phillip, not my type of singer but at least he can sing
3 - Skylar, was actually surprised by her the shouting/screeching was almost gone and she SANG!?
4 - Elise, Better of the three worst really.
5 - Jessica, only scrapes 5th for the 2nd song being sung and not shouted/screeched through.
6 - Joshua, equally worst singer there along with Jessica. Standing ovations were a complete joke for him and the judges constant desperation for him to be in the final is so disgusting.

If Simon Cowell was there he'd be telling the truth about Joshua and Jessica and it is not what those three "judges" a.k.a clowns are saying.

I'm just not "connecting" with Joshua or Jessica. I think with Joshua I'm just not a fan of his voice. And with Jessica, I think it's the judges over-hyping her. She's good, but not one of the best singers America has ever seen (Randy : rolleyes

On the flip side, I love Hollie and Philip. Philip is Philip. He was Philip before the show, he's still Philip on the show, and he will continue to be Philip after the show. He's not going to go out there and do a song that's something different to who he is just to not be "boring". He's been a favourite of mine right from his first audition. And the same goes for Hollie, but make it from her first audition last season. Really happy she did The Climb again, and I thought she overall had a great night last night.

My top two (obviously!) were Phillip and Hollie, then I'd have Skylar. Personally, my least favourites are Joshua, Jessica and Elise, so I guess that would be my bottom three. I reckon Elise will go though, regardless of what the bottom three actually is.

Funny how differently we all see it. For me, Joshua is so far ahead of the rest of them, it's not even close. He is the best singer in one of these contests since Fantasia and up until now, I've always thought she was in a league of her own.

Jessica, I don't really get. She is called a soul singer but I don't hear the soul.

Phillip, I can not understand the appeal at all. I really don't get it. He's just so 'meh' that he's almost invisible.

Elise, love her voice but she's so awkward and unconfortable that she's hard work to watch.

Skylar and Hollie both pass me by. They're probably good at what they do but their style has no appeal to me what so ever

I really don't like Joshua's voice. I can't even describe what I don't like about it.

I disliked most of Fantasia's performances too.

Hello all.

Phillip, I can not understand the appeal at all. I really don't get it. He's just so 'meh' that he's almost invisible.
I'm not saying ALL his votes come from them, but I think the reason why he hasn't hit the bottom three yet is because alot of girls vote with their eyes.

Since everyone else has hit the bottom three it would be exciting if he did aswell. Just to make things more unpredictable.

AI Results' show on....hope for some fun on it.

Queen's extravaganza....that lead singer will never replace Freddy that's for sure....he ought to take off his shirt which would be a start I reckon.

Simon Cowell and the truth do not belong in the same sentence. Cowell merely sees £££ and what is in it for him

wtf is this? lol

I suppose the singer has alot of quirks similar to Freddie.

That guitarist showing off doing a back-flip, he had to stop himself landing on his face.

No one could replace Freddie, IMHO, huge Queen fan here. There was a chemistry in the band that couldn't be repeated.
Having said all that, I do enjoy some of the versions of Queen songs I have heard.
