Watch Shangela Perform a Beyoncé Medley in Front of Queen Bey Herself

It all went down at this year's GLAAD Media Awards in L.A.

Shangela ran the world at this week’s GLAAD Media Awards in L.A.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z were at this year’s ceremony to accept the Vanguard Award for their allyship and how their music has influenced queer people around the world. But before Queen Bey stepped onstage to accept the honor, she was treated to a surprise medley of her biggest hits—performed by RuPaul’s Drag Race legend Shangela.

Now, Shangela is a professional, and she is no stranger to performing a fierce Beyoncé medley—but never in front of Queen Bey herself. So how did Beyoncé and the audience react to the All Star’s performance?

To quote the Carters themselves: Have you ever seen a crowd goin’ apeshit?

Shangela absolutely slayed the medley, prompting everyone to jump to their feet for a standing ovation—including Beyoncé and Jay-Z. After Shangela’s legendary lip sync, the Carters took to the stage to accept their award, with Beyoncé noting how she was “super-honored and overwhelmed.”

“I’ve already cried,” Beyoncé told the audience. “I put a run in my stocking from Shangela.”

If you are gagging over missing Shangela’s Beyoncé tribute, don’t worry because LGBTQ activist—and Logo correspondent—Raymond Braun captured the magic on video and tweeted it out to the Beyhive.

Get ready to shout “Halleloo!” when you watch clips from the performance below.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
