PANIC! AT THE DISCO win Favorite Alternative Rock Artist at AMAs 2018


Besides getting the award, Panic! At The Disco performed Queen’s legendary ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

October 10, 2018

Last night we were glued to our screens, watching the 2018 American Music Awards. And it didn’t disappoint fans. From the rare appearance by Home Alone’s Macaulay Culkin to show host Tracee Ellis Ross’s recap of the decade’s most viral dance routines in the opening. And guess who took home the award for Favorite Alternative Rock Artist? Panic! At The Disco, of course!

Sadly, the award was not announced during the live broadcasting from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, which means we can’t show you this momentous moment. What we can show you is Panic! At The Disco tribute performance to Queen with the undying ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ during the AMAs.

Brendon Urie had previously covered the song ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, starting with the 2015 APMAs to releasing the cover for the Suicide Squad soundtrack in 2016. Urie once said about the song: “If there is one song that I wish I would have written myself, it’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’”
