AceShowbiz - "RuPaul's Drag Race" has crowned its season 10 winner on Thursday, June 28 finale. The episode also served a look back at a decade of the Emmy-winning series.
Before viewers get to see the top four's lip-sync performance, host RuPaul invited season one queens, Victoria "Porkchop" Parker, Akashia, Jade, Ongina, Shannel, Rebecca Glasscock, Nina Flowers and winner BeBe Zahara Benet, to the stage. Following the fun, the final four, Kameron Michaels, Eureka, Asia O'Hara and Aquaria, went joining RuPaul on the stage to see who they would go up against in the next performance.
Kameron faced Asia with a stunning rendition of Janet Jackson's "Nasty". It was such an intense performance, but Asia wasn't going easy for her. She surprised everyone by letting butterflies fly out of her ensemble. However, Asia didn't advance to the next round despite the surprise.
Eureka and Aquaria, meanwhile, showed off their skills in the second lip-sync battle. Performing "If", another Jackson hit, the queens delivered an epic performance that made it hard to choose who would move to the round. And it was such a jaw-dropping moment when RuPaul announced that both Eureka and Aquaria both made it to the finals, making a history with three queens advancing to the ultimate battle royale.
The three queen faced off each other in a performance of "Bang Bang" by Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande. Their fierce stage performance drove the crowd crazy, there would always be one winner in every competition.
After an emotional elimination, Aquaria, who won the Twitter poll, was named as the winner of season 10 of "RuPaul's Drag Race". The official Twitter account of the VH1 series announced the big news, writing, "#DragRace Finale is ovahh! AMERICAS NEXT DRAG SUPERSTAR IS...," alongside a dope snap of the Aquaria.
Prior to the finale, the winner admitted to Entertainment Tonight that "this has been an incredible season with the craziest challenges, the craziest queens."

But I am screaming on the inside."
