The Oscars 2019 will become a slightly rockier affair with Queen and Adam Lambert confirmed to perform at the star-studded awards ceremony.

Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody has been a colossal success since it hit cinemas previous year, raking it in at the box office and absolutely smashing awards season. "Is this just fantasy?" the account tweeted, quoting lyrics from Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody". Is this just fantasy? "Feb 24th. 5pm PST".

If you don't know, the band now performs under the title Queen + Adam Lambert.

Lambert recently opened up about his filling in for the late Mercury in Queen, but stated "Freddie is irreplaceable".

'This is not my music that I wrote: This is me, as a guest, with one of the greatest rock bands of all time, singing the songs that one of the greatest rock singers of all time brought to life'. "It was always my hope that audiences would understand that I'm up there just excited to sing great music that everyone knows", he said.

The band, whose late frontman Freddie Mercury is the subject of "Bohemian Rhapsody," is now made up of original members Brian May and Roger Taylor with former "American Idol" star Adam Lambert taking on vocals.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" has five Academy Award nominations, including a best actor nod for Rami Malek, who takes on the role of Mercury in the film.

Key early kudos: Golden Globes Best Picture (Drama); multiple Best Actor wins (Malek).
