QUEEN drummer ROGER TAYLOR offered singers the chance to upload a video to QUEENEXTRAVAGANZA for "a chance to be a rock star" in celebration of the band's 40th anniversary, according to the website HYPERVOCAL.
DOWNHERE vocalist MARC MARTEL took up the challenge. His video jumped from 127,000 views this morning (9/22) to over 277,000 this afternoon. HYPERVOCAL is touting MARTEL as FREDDIE MERCURY reincarnated: "It's safe to say that the contest is over."
