The eight season of Dance Moms has already brought some awe-inspiring group dances, but this week’s brought a little extra star power and musicality with a tribute to legendary British rock group, Queen. The kids were tasked with bringing on the rock and roll, with Abby’s new favorite student, Brady Farrar, embodying the late Freddie Mercury.
Taking a cue from Bohemian Rhapsody, the team performed a contemporary routine titled “King of Queens” at the Dream Maker talent competition in Pennsylvania. Dressed in white tanks and jeans — a recognizable ode to Queen’s noteworthy 1985 Live Aid performance — the team danced to a mix of "We Will Rock You" and "We are the Champions" (unfortunately, Lifetime could not secure the rights to the songs, so the the music was changed for the TV performance.)
Abby’s vision was for the team to become one cohesive group, and “be a band that a billion people want to watch, just like Queen.”
Brady Farrar wowed the judges by leading the team and channeling his inner Freddie Mercury, squashing the doubts of Abby who questioned whether or not he’d be able to carry the character and performance level of such a legend.
“I’m worried about Brady,” she said during an interview before the group took to the stage. “Is he going to pull off Freddie Mercury? Nobody can miss a note.”
In the end, Brady and the girls took the ultimate crown, earning themselves first place in the small group 12-14 division. Fans took to social media to express how impressed they were with the tribute piece.

#dancemoms That was the best group dance they ever did so far they didn't disappoint to Queen.— Kellye (@_Kellye_) June 26, 2019
But despite the memorable routine and first-place title, Brady still got the boot this week, and was asked to go home. We're looking to see how the girls carry their next group routine without him.
