On the season premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the contestants were all on their toes when RuPaul announced the return of season nine’s drag queen Farrah Moan.

But the reveal was a joke! The actual queen who entered the stage was none other than pop icon Christina Aguilera, this season’s first guest judge. And just in case anyone in the room still needed proof that it really was her, the pop singer belted out a few notes, because NBD.

RuPaul’s joking that Aguilera was Moan was most likely a poke at an incident last year, when a fashion blog mistook Farrah’s look at DragCon for Aguilera arriving at the Met Gala.



Once the queens had regained their composure, Aguilera joined the judges’ panel, where she had the best time watching the bottom two contestants lip sync battle to her hit “Ain’t No Other Man.”

Later, on the Untucked aftershow, we got to see a behind-the-scenes moment between Aguilera and the ladies, where the girl talk got real. During the conversation, in which one contestant mentioned that Aguilera’s hit “Fighter” was the first song she ever did drag for, another contestant asked Aguilera, “So, was that about someone?” The singer exclaimed, “Of course it was!” Aguilera also said that the guy “deserved it,” and revealed that “Infatuation” was about a guy who ended up being gay. “It was heartbreaking because I found out he played for your team, not mine!”

RuPaul’s Drag Race airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on VH1.
