New York Fashion Week has been very good to the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race. All the clothes, the parties, the male models of questionable sexuality. Willam and Sharon Needles even got to walk in the Betsey Johnson show.

But Latrice Royale really snatched NYFW on Tuesday night when she took the stage with the indomitable Jennifer Hudson during CBS’ Fashion Rocks special.

Being in total control of herself, Latrice introduced Hudson, who paid tribute to disco queen Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” owning every note, lyric, treble and clef.

Later, Royale tweeted about their special moment.

Hmmm, JHud has a new album coming out on September 23—what are the odds Miss Large and In Charge makes an appearance?
