Does Rami Malek sing in Bohemian Rhapsody?

The answer isn't completely straightforward.

During the shooting of the film itself, Rami lip syncs, which is not uncommon for a biopic, but whose vocals does he mime along to?

Malek's vocals are mixed together with master tapes of Freddie Mercury's vocals and that of Marc Martel, who has become famous for his uncanny likeness to the Queen frontman's in his YouTube videos.

Speaking to Metro News in 2018, Malek revealed: "It is an amalgamation of a few voices. But predominantly it is my hope and the hope of everyone that we will hear as much Freddie as possible. I think that is the goal for all of us."
