Former "American Idol" finalist Adam Lambert will join rock band Queen as its lead singer this year, according to a report from UK's Daily Star.
Lambert said, "After the EMAs, I heard faint little slithers of a backlash from people saying, 'You can't replace Freddie Mercury.' But I already knew that. There's no intention in my mind of replacing Freddie. That's impossible. The way I'm choosing to view it is that it's a great honor and one I'm in no way going to shirk... Being asked to front Queen is the best thing that can possibly happen."

"American Idol" launched Adam Lambert into stardom -- and the pop star believes the show will be a continued success despite the departure of Simon Cowell.
"Ultimately, after the first couple weeks of auditions, the audience tunes in every week for the contestants," Lambert reveals on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," airing Tuesday, as reported by People magazine.
He adds that the show's success is all about the viewers. "[Audiences] grow fond of one or a couple of the people and they get behind them, and they're invested in them. And of course, it's great to hear... what Simon's going to say. But we tune in to hear the contestants blossom or not."
The show will go on -- but Lambert admits that future hopefuls will miss out on the chance to grow from Simon's honest critiques.
"The contestants will miss out on, like, really honest criticism. Sometimes it can be a little personal, and I know other contestants took it to heart sometimes and got really stressed out about what he would say," Lambert explains. "[But] I think that that's important to making you a better performer... You've got to hear the good and the bad."
