X Factor 2011: Queen's Brian May backs Kitty Brucknell!

Kitty Brucknell x factor

While many viewers weren't too keen on Kitty Brucknell's cover of Queen's Who Wants To Live Forever on Saturday night's show, Brian May loved it! The Queen guitarist, who also wrote the track back in the 1980s, gave the kooky contestant his backing after the performance.

Kitty had given a very dramatic performance of the song, as she was raised up on the stage on top of a platform.

The Sun quotes May as saying: "Kitty, try looking at what they said about Freddie Mercury when we started out. Jealousy is a powerful emotion — it turns people into beasts. They are all wishing they were you."

And praising the song choice, he added: "Thank you, Kitty, for putting your heart into it in such an individual way. Go Kitty!""
