Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton team to open show by singing "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions"

NBC's popular "The Voice" will open the first of its live episodes on Tuesday, June 7 (9-11 p.m. ET), with a lively medley of memorable Queen songs from musician coaches Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

The announcement was made today by Paul Telegdy, executive vice president of alternative programming at NBC and Universal Media Studios.

The four coaches will perform a three-song medley of such Queen standards as "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions."

The event marks the first time that the coaches have collaborated on a song since they gained widespread positive reaction for their joint performance of "Crazy" on the premiere episode of "The Voice."

"Kicking off the debut of the live episodes of 'The Voice' with these high energy renditions of classic Queen hits will set the tone for our live shows," said Telegdy.
