The reigning queen of the Grammys has crowned a pair of her fellow royals.
Following Friday night’s jaw-dropping RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 4 finale — which saw Mama Ru inducting two winning queens into the Drag Race Hall of Fame for the first time in series history — country singer Kacey Musgraves invited the freshly minted champions onstage for their first public crowning during the Los Angeles stop of her Oh, What a World Tour.
“If you’re here tonight, it means you’re missing out on the season finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars,” Musgraves told the audience gathered at L.A.’s Theatre at Ace Hotel. “And I was lucky enough to go hang out with Ru and the queens this season. Tonight we have not one, but two queens!”
All-Stars 4 champions Monét X Change and Trinity The Tuck then joined Musgraves for a rendition of her 2018 single “High Horse” while she presented them with their crowns and scepters.
Photographer Catherine Powell later posted an adorable backstage photos she snapped at the concert, which shows Musgraves applying lipstick in a makeup mirror next to Trinity and Monét.
Musgraves, whose 2018 LP Golden Hour won the Grammy for Album of the Year last Sunday, has long supported RuPaul‘s Emmy-winning reality competition series: She previously expressed interest in casting All-Stars 3 champion Trixie Mattel in one of her music videos and subsequently appeared as a guest judge on All-Stars 4 in December.
RuPaul’s Drag Race returns for season 11 Thursday, Feb. 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET on VH1. Watch Musgraves crown Monét and Trinity above.
