Which RuPaul's Drag Queens Did Miley Cyrus Perform With At The VMAs? It Was A Multi-Season Reunion
As if you could expect anything else, Miley Cyrus was super over-the-top during the MTV Video Music Awards. And, the antics only grew wilder at the end of the night when Cyrus performed "Dooo It," the first single off her new album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz. (No, I'm not making this up.) Not to be outdone by her 2013 twerking duet with Robin Thicke, the singer took the stage for the final number and performed alongside 30 drag queens who, if I'm being honest stole the show with their epic dance moves and awesome clothes.
There's a reason these performers may have caught your eye, aside from their bright and bold costumes. You may have recognized several of them from their appearances on RuPaul's Drag Race. Earlier this week, rumors surfaced that Cyrus recruited 30 contestants from RuPaul's Drag Race to perform alongside her at the VMAs (and was even taking one of them as her date.) And, damn, did she pick a great group. From old favorites to reality star victors like Shangela, Pearl, Violet Chachki, Willam Belli, and more, here are the RuPaul's Drag Race contestants that graced and owned the stage at the 2015 VMAs.
