Watch: Christina Aguilera Surprises A ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Superstar!
The fan favorite queen got emotional immediately.
Pop superstar Christina Aguilera played a big trick on the newest group of queens competing on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10 during the premiere episode on Thursday night, when she walked onto the set with them believing she was season 9 fan favorite Farrah Moan (the two share a very similar resemblance).
The jig was up very quickly, as the season 10 queens lost their mind once they realized it was HER! Little did any of them know, however, that Farrah was flown in by the producers for a very special meet-and-greet with the 5-time Grammy winner.
Farrah, who has no idea why she was flown out to begin with, walks onto the Untucked set (this is the behind-the-scenes show that airs after each episode) and commented on how much better the set looks compared to last year. She then quickly spotted Christina sitting on the couch, and the waterworks begin!
“Hi Farrah, I’m Christina nice to meet you!” exclaimed the “Ain’t No Other Man” singer, as Farrah stands there in complete disbelief. Farrah teared up immediately (something she was known for in her original season), and said “You look so perfect in your pink hair!”
The meeting was especially important for Farrah, who credits the pop legend for her beginnings in the drag world. “The first time I ever did makeup myself, everyone told me I looked like Christina Aguilera,” she revealed, while also saying that it was extra special because the first song she did drag to was “Genie In A Bottle.”
The two also gushed about each other’s looks, with Christina knowing who Farrah was due to a Met Gala inspired look that the season 9 queen did during DragCon in Los Angeles last year. “It’s so awesome that you know that I exist,” exclaimed Farrah.
