"Bohemian Rhapsody" (Pre-recorded vocals and piano part by Freddie Mercury - taken from Queen's 1981 Queen Rock Montreal DVD, with lead vocals by Paul Rodgers for the hard rock section. Rodgers then duetted with the Montreal recording of Mercury for the "outro" section, which then allowed the audience to sing the final "Nothing really matters to me" line before Rodgers repeated it in a slightly varied way. The final (original studio vocal line) "Any way the wind blows" line was then heard while Mercury took a bow for the crowd on the big screen. Spike Edney played the "outro" piano part)
