Top 10 Best Vocal Performances At The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert

The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for AIDS Awareness was a benefit concert held in April 1992 at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
The concert was a tribute to the life of Freddie Mercury, the legendary lead singer of Queen.
Audience - 72,000 (with proceeds going to AIDS research).

Most of the songs were performed with Queen because they were Queen covers.

To tell you in advance my biggest disappointments were:
1) Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin) - he sang Queen's songs Innuendo, Crazy Little Thing Called Love
2) Roger Daltrey (the Who) - he sang Queen's song I Want It All

The Top Ten

1 Somebody to Love - George Michael

Eversince I hear this version of this song I get tears in my eyes. So good!

A song with some very difficult parts to sing and he nailed it. Flawless vocals and technique. His vocals in the 3rd part of the song, where are the hardest things to sing, were so good that even surprised me. And it was live. Moreover, he was a pop singer - I didn't expect to be so good at rock songs. Great job! (play the sample).
R.I.P. George. - Metal_Treasure

2 Bohemian Rhapsody - Elton John and Axl Rose

Even though it's a live version, it's still the best cover of this song for me. - Metal_Treasure

3 The Show Must Go On - Elton John

Mr. Elton John! He was very good, actually one of the best at this concert. Hands down. - Metal_Treasure

4 We Are the Champions - Liza Minnelli

From the first notes you can tell she's got a well trained voice. - Metal_Treasure

5 Tie Your Mother Down - Joe Elliott

Joe Elliott of Def Leppard was just great singing this Queen song (Brian May sang the first verse and Joe continued). - Metal_Treasure

6 Sad but True - James Hetfield
7 Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Axl Rose
8 These Are the Days of Our Lives - George Michael and Lisa Stansfield

Saddest performance of the night. - DaringXx

9 We Will Rock You - Axl Rose
10 Under Pressure - Annie Lennox & David Bowie

The Contenders

11 Stone Cold Crazy - James Hetfield, Tony Iommi and Queen
12 Too Much Love Will Kill You - Brian May
