Panic! At The Disco Perform Sensational Cover Of Bohemian Rhapsody

Panic! At The Disco told the audience they were going to do a live cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody”, but no one could have been prepared for how incredible it would be. Lead singer Brendon Urie is known for his impressive vocal range, but hearing him let loose on this Queen classic really does highlight his exceptional talent.

Even though they managed to infuse their own style into the classic, some fans couldn’t help but compare Brendon’s vocals with Freddie Mercury’s. Their cover went mega-viral online, reaching over 55 million views becoming one of the most popular covers of this classic song. Watch video below.

Next we have another cover of Boeheim Rhapsody, this time by Putri Ariana – a very talented singer from Bangkinang, Indonesia. Despite being blind Putri is a self-taught singer and musician (she plays the piano, guitar, and flute).

Her vocals are simply stunning and will take you on a musical journey when you listen to her. In the video below, she covers Queen’s classic song “Bohemian Rhapsody” with a calming and delicate tone. It’s a mesmerising cover and potentially one of the best on YouTube. Listen below.

It is easy to get jaded by television talent shows. The shows have a formula and while many of the contestants are talented enough, a fair number are just not to your taste. Then there is the occasional special performance that is impeccable, unexpected, and would not be heard were it not for the talent show franchises popularised by Simon Cowell.

The appearance of Putri Ariani, 17, on the audition round of America’s Got Talent on 6 June 2023 was special for a number of reasons. Putri is from Indonesia, and her trip to the US to appear on AGT is her first visit; without AGT we might never have heard of her – or heard her. And yes, her voice definitely deserves to be heard.

What an audition! I don’t think I’ve seen so many audience members shed tears on a tv talent show. Putri is blind, and she sees her appearance on AGT as a stepping stone to her dream of going to college at the prestigious Juilliard School of Music. So there was an emotional response to her circumstances in the reaction from the judges and the audience. Mostly, however, the emotions came from the sheer quality of her performance. Simon so loved Putri’s first song that he asked for an encore.

For her encore, Putri dedicated Elton John’s Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word to Simon. The biggest surprise was when Putri revealed that she had written the first song of her performance. It sounded like a classic song that had slipped people’s minds or a great song from a major artist that one had somehow missed. This is one occasion when few people will dispute that an artist deserves to get the golden buzzer. Here is Tak Mampu Lupa, Putri’s Indonesian interpretation of a Mandarin song:

Tak Mampu Lupa has 12M views on YouTube in less than a year. In Indonesia, Putri Ariani came to public attention when she won Indonesia’s Got Talent 2014 at the age of 8. Putri was a finalist on The Voice Kids Indonesia, 2016, aged 10. Two years later, when Indonesia hosted the 2018 Asian Para Sports, Putri sang Song Of Victory during the opening ceremony. She has a YouTube channel on which she releases singles & live performances, and she also features on the Go Music Group channel.

Her appearance on AGT was so impressive that Putri is already a favourite to win. The US Sun ran the following headline about Putri Ariani on 9 June 2023: “AGT fans are convinced contestants with jaw-dropping talent will ‘definitely’ win despite being only 2 weeks into season.”

On AGT, before she sang, Putri said: “My biggest challenge is people look at me just as a blind person, not as a musician. But when I’m singing, I feel like I’m a superstar.”

Whatever happens on AGT, let us hope that Putri Ariani gets to study at the Julliard School of Music. If you would like to see more from Putri Ariani, you can subscribe to her YouTube channel. You can also visit her official website for more information.
