In the middle of the evening, Queen and Lambert dropped in a surprise cover of the 1956 Elvis Presley classic, "Heartbreak Hotel", which was a US No. 1 hit for the late music icon.

"We're ready to take on the ultimate challenge... to dazzle Vegas!!", said guitarist Brian May when announcing the series, with Lambert adding: "I'm so excited to help share 'The Crown Jewels' with the Strip. You'll be humming them all night!"
