A new 'Idol' ditty: Ace Young rocks you!

Poor Brian May! The Queen guitarist served as this week’s guest vocal coach on American Idol, but says the segment showing him rehearsing with contestant Ace Young ”was edited in such a way that it looked as if I was purely negative – they very naughtily inserted a bit that I said about ‘not on my own song’ so it appeared that I said it AFTER we had played together, which was not the way it happened…making me look like I was against the whole thing.” Inspired by May’s plight, PopWatch reworked one of Queen’s beloved hits, ”We Will Rock You,” as a foot-stomping testament to The Truth. Look for it on the Billboard charts later this spring.

Brian May’s a boy, makes a big noise
Plays guitar for Queen, coached the Idol singers this week
The show made him lose sleep
Gave him the creeps
But everybody knows TV editing’s cheap

Ace Young, Ace Young rocked him!
Ace Young, Ace Young rocked him!

Brian May’s a nice man, kind man
Shoutin’ on his blog: Ace Young was ”pretty damn good”
And he’s majorly vexed
Wicked perplexed
Sayin’ the producers took him out of context

Ace Young, Ace Young rocked him!
Ace Young, Ace Young rocked him!

Brian May’s not foul, not a Simon Cowell
Pleadin’ to his fans that you really shouldn’t get him wrong
He liked working with Ace
It’s no disgrace
Fox twisted his comment about “not on my song”

(All together now)
Ace Young, Ace Young rocked him!
Ace Young, Ace Young rocked him!
