Hello Freddie

Media Moment: American Idol
Queen-related: Randy’s pin?

Is it just me or was Randy Jackson wearing a pin on American Idol the other night that bore more than a passing resemblance to Freddie?

Every time the camera passed by Jackson I tried to get a better look at it but apart from the blue thing in the hair, it strikes me as a cross between ’70s Freddie hair and ’80s Freddie moustache . . . all crossed with Hello Kitty in some bizarre parallel universe. 

There’s actually a video clip of Ryan Seacrest asking Randy about the pin at a point during the show that the regular cameras were not rolling. Seacrest seems to keep a bunch of outtakes from Idol for his own web needs.

Unfortunately, Randy’s answer wasn’t very helpful in understanding who the likeness is supposed to be of. All we are told is that a friend of Jackson’s in New York makes them.

With the lack of Queen content in this year’s Idol season, maybe this is the closest we’ll get to seeing Freddie being part of the show.
