The following contains spoilers for RuPaul’s Drag Race, Season 12, Episode 7.
For weeks on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12, Jan has been safe, and as such aching for some attention from the judges. Then came “Madonna: The Unauthorized Rusical,” a musical ode to all things Madonna. As Jan is a skilled song-and-dance queen, this seemed destined to be her moment. She wowed the judges were her early Madonna jam then came out strong in the “Night of a 1000 Michelle Visages” runway look. She got lots of love from the main panel as well as from extra special guest judge Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Yet, the win went to Gigi Goode.
Goode’s fans took to Twitter to cheer.
