The variety-talk show premiered on VH1 and lasted for two seasons and over the course of the series’ 100 episodes Mama Ru had some of the biggest names in entertainment grace his stage like Diana Ross, Olivia Newton John, Debbie Harry and of course, Cher.

To celebrate this special day see RuPaul and Cher gab about everything from boy crushes to where she keeps her Oscar—and watch as Ru lip syncs for his life with the iconic singer, performing her “Shoop Shoop Song” from Mermaids.
