"Is this real life? Is this just fantasy?" tweets The Academy about Queen's involvement in the awards ceremony.
A song lyric or not, this is huge news for both Queen and 'Bohemian Rhapsody' fans.
The band Queen, along with Adam Lambert, will be taking to the stage at this year's Oscars ceremony on Sunday night. Lambert, the runner-up from 2009's 'American Idol', has been touring with the band since 2012; they even played Dublin's Marlay Park last summer.
The Academy tweeted their involvement in this year's ceremony, saying "Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? We welcome @QueenWillRock and @adamlambert to this year's #Oscars!"

'Bohemian Rhapsody' is up for five awards this year including Best Picture, and Best Actor for Rami Malek's portrayal of Freddie Mercury.
Other Oscar's news about who else would be performing on the night has also been announced. All Best Original Song nominees are expected to perform as part of a musical number, including 'Shallow' crooners Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, as well as Jennifer Hudson for 'I'll Fight' from 'RBG'.
Bette Midler announced that she will be "chanteusing" 'The Place Where Lost Things Go' from Disney's 'Mary Poppins Returns' - but there's been no word yet if Emily Blunt or Julie Andrews will be popping up out of a bathtub.
So, (drum roll) Ladies and Gentlemen, I will be chanteusing (that's singing) on the Oscars on Feb 24...the nominated song from "Mary Poppins"..."The Place Where Lost Things Go" ...so excited!!
