'American Idol' season 17 contestant Dimitrius Graham gushes about performing with Adam Lambert for the finale

A new winner was crowned on 'American Idol' season 17. 

But before the series could reveal the title winner this season, the grand finale had a star-studded lineup of contestants from the past season who have made it big in the music industry. 

The lineup included Carrie Underwood, Daddy Yankee, Dan + Shay, Jon Pardi, Montell Jordan, Kool, Weezer, Kane Brown, Andra Day and Adam Lambert. Apart from them, the judges also performed along with the Top 10 contestants and Top 40 contestant Shayy. 

Season 16 winner Maddie Poppe also made a brief appearance in the finale alongside host Ryan Seacrest. Though everyone's performance was off the hook, one performance that stood out amongst the rest was Adam Lambert and Top 10 contestant Dimitrius Graham's performance of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.

Before Graham could perform with Lambert in the finale, he spoke to MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) in an exclusive interview and revealed his excitement about performing with the current lead singer for Queen.

After last week's episode, the lineup for the grand finale was revealed which stated that Graham would be performing with Lambert. Revealing his excitement prior to the finale Graham said, "I am excited about performing with Adam Lambert because we both have very similar styles. You know we both have that rockish classical bad boy type of style. So, I am looking forward to that and it feels great." 

Performing Bohemian Rhapsody during the finale, Graham's performance will be remembered. His vocal range, especially during the operatic session made him shine during the performance. The two were a good duo and performed really well.

Talking about the biggest inspiration in his life, Graham revealed, "My biggest inspiration I would probably have to say, Michael Jackson, and Beyonce." 

Now that 'American Idol' season 17 has come to an end, the series will soon begin auditions for season 18.
