JoJo Siwa rocked The Queen Family Singalong with an epic performance of one of the most popular Queen songs.
Joined by guitarist Orianthi, the pop superstar and Dancing With The Stars’ contestant performed one of Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” a track that Siwa labeled “one of their most iconic songs ever” from the legendary Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel during The Queen Family Singalong on Thursday (Nov. 4).
“I’m so excited. I have been a fan of Queen for a very long time and I mean Queen changed my life. Freddie [Mercury] changed my life and so to be a part of this is awesome,” Siwa said ahead of her performance. “I actually get to do ‘We Will Rock You.’ I get to sing ‘We Will Rock You,’ I get to perform ‘We Will Rock You’ and I am just ecstatic.”
