Kanye West performs on the Pyramid Stage at the Glastonbury Festival of Music and Performing Arts on Worthy Farm near the village of Pilton in Somerset, South West England, on June 27, 2015.  

Whether he butchered it or it was fair game, Kanye West would have done well to stay away from tackling Queen’s "Bohemian Rhapsody" when gave a headline performance at last weekend’s Glastonbury Festival. 

West isn’t celebrated for his singing skills and, well, the late, great Freddie Mercury was peerless at the craft. And the 1975 song showcases Mercury's talents.

While the mud settles on this year’s Glastonbury, someone has taken the time to edit Kanye’s performance with archive footage of Mercury looking on and laughing, before the Queen frontman takes the mic and delivers the goods, with a crestfallen Kanye looking on. The clip was created by Sam Valorose, a writer for Q1043.com. Watch it below (before it’s yanked from YouTube).
