“People can be more complex than you expect,” says Ruby Red, the drag superstar played by RuPaul in the third episode of Netflix's new show AJ and the Queen. “You can be a hunter from Ohio, and still enjoy a fabulous drag queen. Nobody's just one thing.”
Not only does AJ and the Queen offer up a heartwarming message about American optimism and self-love, but it also sees RuPaul delivering a series of fabulous drag numbers for the first time in years. Every episode of the show features a different performance from the star, as seen in a new supercut from Netflix (premiering below); sometimes you'll get to see Ru sing an original track, and in other scenes, he performs jaw-dropping lip-syncs to an eclectic mix of tracks. Whether it's Sia, Kim English, the original Broadway cast of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, or any of the numbers featured on the show's soundtrack, each performance shows off Ru's raw, unfiltered talent.
