Spain’s Got Talent 2016 winner Cristina Ramos performed an unorthodox version of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody“, and everyone was blown away.
Cristina started off with a soprano voice, making everyone think that it was how she will interpret the iconic Queen song.
But after around 40 seconds of that soprano portion, the music drops and Cristina takes off her cape. Clad in a glittering black bodysuit, she blasts into a rock version of “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
The audience and judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel, were all taken aback. Even host Terry Crews was delightedly surprised.
Cristina continued rocking the song, punctuating the high notes with her soprano voice.
The arrangement of her version of “Bohemian Rhapsody” was superb, the late Freddie Mercury and the band Queen would be pleased.

After her performance, Mel B shouted, “That was brilliant!” Howie Mandel described it as “very original, very different” and said people didn’t expect that.
Heidi Klum said she loved it because it was “so much fun.” She said Cristina started like opera singer Maria Callas and then turned into Courtney Love all of a sudden and then went “completely bonkers.”
Simon said the Cristina’s performance was spectacular, unbelievable and amazing, that her voice was “off the charts”.
Heidi Klum was asked by Simon to press the Golden Buzzer for Cristina, but she did not. Instead, Heidi awarded her Golden Buzzer to extreme knife-throwing duo, Deadly Games.
When it came to the superfans vote, Cristina Ramos won over ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer, the AGT 2017 winner, who got the second highest number of votes. Teen rock star Courtney Hadwin received the third highest number of votes
Darci Lynne Farmer (age 14) sang Tina Turner’s classics “Nutbush City Limits” and “Proud Mary”, with her puppet Oscar The Mouse, and received a standing ovation from the audience and the judges too.
Courtney Hadwin (age 14) sang an original titled “Pretty Little Thing”. The audience were up on their feet and so were the four judges after her amazing performance.
