With Adult Goth/possible vampire Adam Lambert at its helm, Queen is set to dazzle us all during the awards show, which controversially tried to cut four categories from its broadcast in hopes of saving time. Is this just fantasy?'

The band will perform at the Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, the Motion Picture Academy announced on social media today.

'Is this the real life?

The two will perform at the 91st Annual Academy Awards at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California, on February 24. "We welcome @QueenWillRock and @adamlambert to this year's #Oscars!". "Feb 24th. 5pm PST".

"Queen + @adamlambert will ROCK YOU!", the official Queen account also tweeted.

‘Leaving Neverland’ Trailer: HBO Documentary Finds Abuse Victims Speaking Out
Jackson was acquitted of molesting 13-year-old boy Gavin Arvizo at Neverland after a highly publicised 2005 trial. The abuse alleged in the film was so appalling there were counselors on hand for traumatized viewers.

'This is not my music that I wrote: This is me, as a guest, with one of the greatest rock bands of all time, singing the songs that one of the greatest rock singers of all time brought to life'.

The band, whose late frontman Freddie Mercury is the subject of biopic Bohemian Rhapsody now comprises original Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor along with former American Idol star Adam Lambert.

The Indiana born entertainer added, 'Freddie is irreplaceable'.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" has five Academy Award nominations, including a best actor nod for Rami Malek, who takes on the role of Mercury in the film.

Variety reported last month that the Academy's original plans were to only have two nominated songs performed during the telecast, but in keeping with its track record this year, walked back on that decision after backlash. Malek won Best Actor and the film won Best Motion Picture-Drama.
