A documentary charting the rise of vocalist Adam Lambert is set to be screened this spring.

The film titled The Show Must Go On: The Queen & Adam Lambert Story will be broadcast on ABC on April 29, with Jim Beach and Simon Lupton behind the project.

It’s reported that the documentary will explore the vocalist’s career from his early days, through his time as a competitor on American Idol, through to joining forces with Queen’s Roger Taylor and Brian May.

The film will include concert footage along with interviews with Taylor, May and Lambert himself, while it’ll also feature Oscar-winning Bohemian Rhapsody actor Rami Malek, and Foo Fighters pair Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins.

Queen and Lambert opened the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday evening with a medley containing We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions. Bohemian Rhapsody went on to clinch four Oscars on the night.

Queen and Lambert will head out on the Rhapsody tour across North America this summer.
