Adam Lambert Performs 'Love Kills' w/ Queen Live

New frontman Adam Lambert joined Queen for a live performance of a 30-year-old Freddy Mercury track "Love Kills" during their I Heart Radio show this week in promotion of their 17 city summer tour!

Check it out!

As described by Yahoo:

"Love Kills" is a relatively obscure song, but Queen fanatics definitely know (and love) it. It was late, great original Queen frontman Freddie Mercury's first song recorded as a solo artist, and was featured on electronic music legend Giorgio Moroder's soundtrack for the 1984 rerelease of Fritz Lang's classic 1927 silent film, Metropolis.

While the track wasn't necessarily well-received at the time (it was actually nominated for "Worst Original Song" at the 1985 Razzie Awards), it did make it to No. 10 on the U.K. singles chart, and it went on to become a cult classic. According to Queen's publicist, Queen never performed "Love Kills" live with Freddie, who died in 1991. Freddie never performed it solo, either. 

What do you think of Adam and Queen, Instincters?
