Eight men start to sing Queen classic. 30 seconds later crowd erupts in fit of laughter
When a singer, a group, or a song makes a great impact in the world, other people often honor them by performing some of their songs during their concerts
Queen is considered one of the best bands in history and one of their songs, Bohemian Rhapsody, was voted as the UK’s favorite hit of all time in a poll made by the Guinness World Records British Hit Singles Book in 2002.
Faith Tap reported that it has been performed by many people and groups countless times in every possible genre thanks to its well-divided sections: an introduction, a ballad, an operatic passage, a hard-rock segment, and a reflective coda.
An a cappella group of the University of California named UC Berkeley Men’s Octet chose to pay their tribute to the aforementioned band performing Bohemian Rhapsody in front of an audience that didn’t know what they were about to sing.
The all wore suits and ties and stood next to each other with their heads down and hands folded across their chests. As soon as they pronounced the first word, the audience started laughing, cheering, and clapping.
UC Berkeley Men’s Octet proved that they not only sing flawlessly but also dance very good as they added some smooth moves and a simple yet impressive choreography to their performance.
One of the aspects that attracted more attention was that they played their vocal version of the guitar solo of the original song. Soon after that, the choreography began.
While one of them was in the front of the stage singing, the rest was behind him moving up and down simultaneously. They later got together and started pointing to the ceiling while walking sideways.
Three of them got to one knee while the rest was standing behind them just as if they were keeping them trapped. Reaching to the fourth minute of the performance, a member hit a note so high that the audience got clearly impressed.
To finish, they got together in the middle of the stage and took the same position they started the 5-and-a-half-minute show. The audience couldn't stop cheering.
