Mika

If I had to compare Mika to any one singer, it would be Queen's late and great frontman, Freddie Mercury. Evidently, Mika agrees and sings about "[trying] a little Freddie" in his song "Grace Kelly." Whether this line further implies anything about a shared sexual orientation with Mr. Mercury, I can't say. Many swear by Mika's homosexuality, but he's been mum about it. But it don't matter -- Mika's so much more than his sexuality. His songs "Grace Kelly" and "Love Today" have graced the waves of MTV many a time and for good reason. Mika's sound is very much accessible and simply enjoyable to listen to. Dancey, fun, and quirky, his falsetto is also a hoot to impersonate. A strong melody is present in every one of his tunes, making his music perfect sing-along songs.
Take a listen and hear for yourself! You'll have him stuck in your head in no time.

Perhaps he is referring to Freddie of the era of Grace Kelly rather than your Freddie Mercury . . . since it does go along with the song a little better. Just a thought.
