The singer and the series announced the news on Twitter, revealing that Gaga would appear as a judge on the season opener. In a promo clip, the superstar appears in front of the 13 contestants -- who are freaking out over the presence of Mother Monster -- and declares, "May the best woman win." Whatever the competition is, we have no doubt the queens will be pulling out all the stops to impress superstar.
In a Twitter post sharing her excitement, Gaga referenced her hit 2011 single "Born This Way," hashtagging the lyrics "Don't be a drag, just be a queen." The official "Drag Race" account also tweeted out a series of ecstatic messages, writing, "#DragRace is so ready to go #Gaga!"
The show also dug up an old tweet from Gaga, who asked the account back in 2013 if she could be a judge. "Wish finally granted Mother Monster!" the show tweeted in response on Tuesday.
