On the scene at 'RuPaul's Drag Race: Reunited': RuPaul crowns three America's Next Drag Superstar winners (for now)

Last night at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood, Calif., the 13 contestants from season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race gathered for the show’s annual reunion and — because host RuPaul refused to pick a winner in Monday’s season finale episode — a very special crowning of this year’s winner. Only, you know that’s not how that was going to go down.

'RuPaul's Drag Race' shocker! America's Next Drag Superstar NOT crowned in season finale

DRAG-RACE-FINALISTS

You read that headline right, Drag Race fans: RuPaul pulled a fast one on the queens — and the show’s rabid viewership — by shockingly announcing on tonight’s season 4 finale of the reality competition that she would not be crowning America’s Next Drag Superstar. Chad Michaels, Phi Phi O’Hara, and Sharon Needles all remain in the competition…for now.

“Ladies, I’ve made my decisions,” RuPaul said, with all the drama in the world, just as she was about to reveal her choice on the runway. “Chad Michaels, Phi Phi O’Hara, Sharon Needles, the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, America’s Next Drag Superstar is…going to be announced next week on RuPaul’s Drag Race Reunited.” (Note: EW will be on the scene for the reunion, which is taping Wednesday evening in Los Angeles, and will share all the details will you in time.)
