If you thought RuPaul was done breaking the rules after Monét X Change and Trinity The Tuck’s controversial double crowning, then honey, you’ve got a big storm comin’!
For this week’s maxi-challenge, the queens were tasked with putting their pop icon knowledge to the test when they had to perform in live diva worship chat shows, in two opposing groups led by Nina West and Ra’jah O’Hara.
Nina’s team composed of Silky Nutmeg Ganache, Yvie Oddly, Vanjie, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Ariel Versace Diamond while Ra’jah’s team included Shuga Cain, Scarlet Envy, Plastique Tiara, Honey Davenport and A’Keria C. Davenport.
Britney Spears was the chosen diva for Nina’s she-vangelical talk show, while Ra’jah’s team paid tribute to Mariah Carey, despite most (all) of her team having no knowledge of the whistle icon. Like, huh?
Unsurprisingly, Ra’jah’s team floundered in the challenge, and because Nina excelled in bringing her team together, she was declared the winner of the challenge and the rest of the queens on her team were declared safe.
On the runway, Ra’jah, Shuga, Scarlet, Plastique, Honey and A’Keria received negative critiques across the board. When Mama Ru asked each contestant to place the blame on one of their fellow queens, they unanimously voted for themselves.
After they sashayed backstage, RuPaul told all six queens that they had to lip sync for their lives, which left the remaining contestants, Michelle Visage, Ross Matthews and guest judges Troye Sivan and Guillermo Diaz gagged to the mothertucking high heavens.
Watch below to see which queen got the chop…
Obviously, the Drag Race fandom expressed their opinion towards the amount of goopery and gaggery on Twitter. See the best reactions below.

The lip sync in this week's drag race is basically the brexit debate to music.

When I first read the tea about the 6-way lip sync, I honestly thought the team would perform worse than they actually did, but some of them did ok #DragRace
