Queen are set to rock at the 2019 Oscars on Sunday after confirming they have been asked to perform a medley from biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Lead singer Adam Lambert took to Twitter on Monday and posted a 15-second video of the band performing "We Will Rock You" as the words "Queen + Adam Lambert. Feb 24th. The OSCARS" flashed up on the screen.

He added the caption: We will rock The Oscars Feb 24th.

Academy Awards bosses confirmed the big news via social media, adding: "Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? We welcome @QueenWillRock and @adamlambert to this year's #Oscars!"

"Bohemian Rhapsody" is up for five Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Rami Malek, and Best Sound Mixing - the award John Casali and his team picked up at the 55th annual Cinema Audio Society Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing on Saturday night.

Queen and Lambert will join the likes of Bette Midler, Lady Gaga, and Bradley Cooper among the performers at the Oscars on Sunday.

Midler has been tapped to sing "The Place Where Lost Things Go," the nominated song from Mary Poppins Returns, while Gaga and Bradley will reunite onstage to belt out their hit "Shallow" from "A Star is Born."

Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson will also perform "I'll Fight" from the documentary RBG, Kendrick Lamar and SZA will sing "All The Stars" from Black Panther, and Gillian Welch and David Rawlings will tackle The Ballad of Buster Scruggs' "When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings."
