Don't be a drag, just be a queen.

Last Friday, March 24, RuPaul's Drag Race saw its season nine premiere with some serious guest judge star power: Lady Gaga. Mother Monster surprised the other drag queen contestants by pretending to be a Lady Gaga impersonator named Ronnie. This is, of course, not the first time we've seen Gaga as a drag king—remember Jo?

It took the queens a minute or two to realize that it was actually Gaga standing in front of them, which prompted lots of tears and a few Yes Gagaaaaas. In homage to the guest judge, the contestant's first challenge was walking the runway as different iconic looks of the singer. For the fashion buffs, Gaga broke down the significance of, and designers behind, each one. Sadly, she didn't perform herself.
