I am pretty sure this is a bromalaid of some sort. It has very rough edges on each leaf and spots. The bloom is a bright pink with bluish tips, very pretty. Thanks

I wouldn't know what anyone meant if they asked me what a Queen's Tear was. What you definitly have is a Billbergia LOL as to the species, to me it looks as close to my Billbergia nutans as you can get hence the identification.

Ok thank so much again.

You're Welcome Sprouts

If you do find its another species of Billbergia please let me know :)
