There is nothing bigger than the RuPaul’s Drag Race 2017 premiere, but they gave it to us fierce tonight, as Lady Gaga made an appearance! Yes, Drag Race Goes Gaga was the rage tonight on VH1, as the RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 premiere aired and it did not disappoint. Check out the details in our RuPaul’s Drag Race 2017 Recap below and see who got eliminated on RuPaul’s Drag Race 2017 tonight!
For RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9, we have 13 new queens looking to walk away with that $100,000 prize and the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.” From the looks of these queens, I don’t think it is going to be an easy task of winning! They all look like they came to play and no messing around, honey!

The fun has taken place for tonight, so check out all the details in our recap below!
Warning: This post contains spoilers from RuPaul’s Drag Race tonight on VH1, so stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happened!!!
The queens are arriving and Peppermint is there first! Valentina is looking fierce, but definitely over-the-top. Eureka is bringing the big girls to the house. Charlie Hides doesn’t say her age, but it shows on the screen she is 52 years old! Farrah Moan is showing a lot of skin there. Sasha Velour comes in and just screams so loud and is a bald queen! Alexis Michelle said she is the Broadway queen and would love to be on Broadway in drag. Shea Coulee did not come to play, she came to slay. Trinity Taylor does not pad and loves plastic surgery and has had a ton of it. Kimora Blac and she said Kimora is everyone’s sexual preference and she has a big booty! Jaymes Mansfield builds puppets and is cooky. Nina Bo’nina Brown comes out in a mouse costume and is high energy. Aja said her style is streets of New York meets streets of Tokyo.
Trinity and Eureka know each other and the gloves are coming out already. Valentina has only been doing drag for 10 months! They all throw some shade after the arrivals and Eureka is funny, but comments on everyone!
The last “queen” comes out and they are all blown away by her, but it turns out it is actually Lady Gaga! The queens are blown away and Eureka breaks down thanking her for letting them be who they are. RuPaul arrives and we get some words of wisdom from Lady Gaga and we sing some “Supermodel.” RuPaul tells them that no one is going home tonight on the RuPaul’s Drag Race 2017 premiere, so relieve sets in!
RuPaul said they are throwing a pageant, as it is the Miss Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve & Talent Pageant! There will be two parts to it: wearing a frock that represents their home city and then they will show off their best Lady Gaga drag!
The queens all race to get their looks for Lady Gaga. We have Aja constantly talking about being from New York and so and so made this look for her and Kimora is not impressed. Farrah is whining and cannot find a station to work at. Eureka just wants to beat Trinity.
The panel of judges for tonight are Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, Ross Mathews and Lady Gaga! They will start by introducing themselves and wearing the frocks and Peppermint is Lady Liberty and loving it. Eureka is representing the redneck woman. Charlie Hides is a pilgrim! Farrah Moan is kind of blah while talking. Shea Coulee is wearing hot dogs all on her head. Kimora is beautiful and Aja’s makeup is looking rough. Nina Bo’nina Brown is a big ol’ peach!
Now it is time for the best Lady Gaga drag on RuPaul’s Drag Race 2017! I love Eureka’s look, which is from the “Telephone” music video. Charlie Hides is look great with the huge wig. Farrah Moan is rocking her look. Alexis Michelle is looking great from the Golden Globes. Jaymes Mansfield has a crazy wig and being campy.
Time for the judges to discuss the looks tonight. They thought Peppermint was good, but meh. Michelle said Eureka was one of her favorites. Ross loved Charlie’s Gaga look. They did not seem to be impressed with Farrah Moan. Michelle thought Sasha Velour had too many props, but Ross disagreed. They thought Alexis Michelle’s Gaga look was amazing. They thought Shea did not go into enough details with the Gaga look. They loved Trinity’s Gaga look and Lady Gaga said she nailed it. Lady Gaga said Kimora needs some time to get comfortable. Ross said Jaymes Mansfield left him with drag comedy blue balls. Lady Gaga sees a star in Nina.
The queens are back on the runway and we have Eureka, Sasha Velour and Nina Bo’nina Brown as the top three tonight on RuPaul’s Drag Race 2017! The winner of this pageant is Nina Bo’nina Brown!!! RuPaul said wait though, as the competition truly starts now! Nina did win, but he is bringing a 14th queen into the competition! They are returning to the runway, as it is someone that has been there before, but we only get a tease of who it is. Who do you think it is???
