'American Idol' Top 6 'honored' to sing with Queen

american-idol-queen-fox.jpgIn case you were wondering, singing with rock and roll legends is just as cool as you think it'll be. The "American Idol" Top 6 tell Zap2it after the performance show that the opening medley they sang with Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor was a highlight of their young lives.

"That was crazy, performing with Queen," Joshua Ledet says. "I was super excited. I mean, how many people can actually say they performed with Queen? [It's] ridiculous. It's a big highlight of my life and I'm going to take it everywhere."

Elise Testone
says she has fond memories of listening to Queen as a kid. "When I was little, my dad collected jukeboxes and we had a ton of Queen records in ours," she says. "I would roller skate all night long and blast Queen and sing every word. That's why during the medley I was like 'Yeah,' because I knew every song and I'm looking at them like 'Come on!' It was awesome."

It was especially cool for her that she got along so well with May and Taylor. "That was amazing, oh my God. It was kind of like with Stevie Nicks. [I had] that same feeling when I met them -- that vibe like we're kindred spirits or whatever. I felt like I connected with the guys. [May] said he might play on an album with me. He said it three times. He was like 'Call me!' I was like 'Okay, I will!'"

Skylar Laine says she was surprised that May and Taylor were so polite and normal. "They are so down to Earth," she says. "They are so nice. They say thank you and please to everybody. You would never know that they are rock stars. They're incredible musicians so I was so honored."
