Tonight “American Idol” treated us to some of the most amazingly talented musicians in New York City! We even had a chance to watch “American Idol” 2009 runner-up Adam Lambert perform Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which just happens to be the song he auditioned with originally back in 2008, back when Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell and Kara DioGuardi were judges.
