Watch Sebastian Bach Be Transformed Into Queen’s Freddie Mercury
Over the last four weeks, former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach has been invading prime-time television as a contestant on ABC’s program ‘Sing Your Face Off,’ which bills itself as a talent variety competition. Celebrities are transformed and work with choreographers and vocal coaches to perform as a specific musical star.
In the most recent episode of the show, Bach takes on one of rock’s truly iconic vocal performances, Queen‘s ‘We Are the Champions.’ Replicating the vocal range and mannerisms of Freddie Mercury, one of the most dynamic performers of the 20th Century, is no easy task but Bach does a commendable job rising to the challenge, as seen above.
Although he vocally breaks character at a couple of different times early in his performance, ‘Sing Your Face Off’ judge and Saturday Night Live veteran Darrell Hammond seems rather impressed with Bach when he initially hit the stage.
And while other judges can be seen clapping along during his performance, their enthusiasm wasn’t enough to keep Bach on the program. The Canadian native ranked last of the contestants competing and, as such, the singer was sent packing.
Don’t break out the pity party invites for Bach just yet though. Although he was embroiled in a back and forth argument with Motley Crue‘s Nikki Sixx last month, things have been rather quiet between the two lately. Sebastian Bach released his latest solo record, ‘Give ‘Em Hell’ this past April and kicks off an almost month-long European tour on June 28 in France.
