After impressing the English trio Bee Gees with their imitation of "Too Much Heaven," the TNT Boys have caught the attention of one of the members of the iconic rock band Queen with another memorable performance.

The "Tawag ng Tanghalan" graduates — Francis Concepcion, Mackie Empuerto, and Kiefer Sanchez — recently returned to the US version of "Little Big Shots," where they once again wowed host Steve Harvey and the audience with their rendition of Queen's "Somebody to Love."

Just a day after "Little Big Shots" released a clip of the performance online, Brian May, one of the members of the British quartet, shared the video on his verified Facebook page.

He wrote: "Check out these lovely young lads from the Philippines. Brilliant. Great to see youngsters relating to Queen so well — and enjoying."

 

Queen, best remembered for enduring hits like "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "We are the Champions," also included as members Roger Taylor, John Deacon, and the late Freddie Mercury.

Of late, there has been a resurgence of interest in Queen, as promotions for the biographical film about Mercury and the band's formation, titled "Bohemian Rhapsody," are on full swing, leading up to its October release.

The TNT Boys, who are currently contestants in ABS-CBN's "Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids," previously went viral for their cover of Beyonce's "Listen" on "Gandang Gabi Vice" — which they reprised during their first appearance in "Little Big Shots" in the UK in April, and then in the US in May.
