The Next Freddie Mercury?!

 Earlier this year, the members of Queen got fed up with the glut of unauthorized Queen cover bands out there sullying Freddie Mercury's legacy. And so they decided to host a talent search to create a sanctioned cover band for the 2012 "Queen Extravaganza Tour," a Cirque de Soleil-style royal road show, overseen by Queen drummer Roger Taylor, celebrating the music of one of the best stadium rock bands EVER. This week, Queen's nearly three-month talent search culminated at the Foo Fighters' Studio 606 in Los Angeles, and now Queen have finally announced the winning lineup. Unsuprisingly, the official Queen Extravaganza band will be fronted by YouTube sensation Marc Martel, who also lends his mind-blowingly Mercury-like vocals to the Canadian band Downhere.
