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

At the age of 19, a young woman from Hoover, Alabama traveled to Syria to join ISIS - the so-called " Islamic State ". Fox News White House Correspondent Kevin Corke compiled an informative thread on Muthana and her background.

The impressive list of performers at this year's 91st Academy Awards just keeps getting better. "We welcome @QueenWillRock and @adamlambert to this year's #Oscars!". "Feb 24th. 5pm PST".

This morning, the Academy made the announcement, revealing that Queen will perform at the event as their current incarnation, Queen + Adam Lambert.

The performance will be in support of the biopic Bohemian Rhapsody about the band and their front man, the late singer, Freddie Mercury.

"Freddie is irreplaceable. There's no way to compare to him". The Bradley Cooper-directed movie has received a staggering eight nominations including best actor for Rami Malek and best picture. 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. Unfortunately it was pipped to the post at the Baftas earlier this month when Alfonso Cuarón's stylish drama Roma picked up Best Film.
