Get ready to hear “Bohemian Rhapsody” like never before, in this unique rendition that is sure to leave you grinning from ear to ear.
When a group of sharply dressed college men stood next to each other with their heads down and hands folded across their chests on stage, the audience had no idea what they were about to be treated to. Members of the University of California, Berkeley, a cappella group Octet begin singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” much to the delight of the audience. It doesn’t take long for the performance to take an interesting turn, and the moment it happens the audience erupts in a fit of laughter.
They throw in some fancy footwork and fun choreography throughout their performance, which includes short solos and beautiful harmony. But the moment they begin singing the instrumental parts themselves a cappella, the audience completely loses it.. At the 2:48 mark, the crowd cannot stop cracking up when they perform their vocal version of the guitar solo from the original song. At 3:48, one of the guys hits such a high note that the audience is stunned. Their choreography takes it up a notch when they reach the final head-banging section. Pay close attention to end when they segue into the next section of this song. They’re really good and fun to watch!
