Look, no one can replace original Queen front man Freddie Mercury, but Adam Lambert and James Corden are going to give it their best shot.

American Idol alum Adam Lambert has been touring the world as Queen's surrogate front man. But talk show host James Corden told his audience on Thursday that he thought he could best Lambert as the iconic rock band's lead singer. After inadvertently challenging Lambert to a sing-off, the two men went head-to-head and belted out some of Queen's most iconic tunes, including "We Will Rock You," "Don't Stop Me Now" and "Somebody to Love" with original band members Brian May and Roger Taylor.

Although Lambert clearly slaughtered Corden in this battle of the vocal chords, James Corden's latest excuse to sing on television ended the way they all do— with the talk show host and the guest coming together to sing an epic duet. You did Freddie proud, boys.
