More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2020 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Freddie Mercury, the late lead singer of Queen, is widely considered to be one of the best singers in the history of rock music; he died in 1991 at the age of 45 due to AIDS complications. His career with Queen formed a major part of the hit 2018 biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, which was nominated for five Oscars.
The quote in question came from a 2019 article describing Marc Martel, the vocal double for Rami Malek in Bohemian Rhapsody, making reference to the Queen classic “Bicycle Race”.
