Tonight marked the end of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3, and yours truly has quite a bit to say.....
It's not exactly going to be positive.
In a finale that saw Trixie Mattel crowned champion, it took us awhile to get there. With plenty of drama. And some bullshit new format courtesy of Mama Ru.
After a bit of a rocky & uneven season that saw BenDelaCreme bow out after being the clear front runner for the crown, the final 4 of Shangela, Bebe Zahara Benet, Kennedy Davenport, and Trixie Mattel battled it out.
The queens took part in an epic music video extravaganza set to RuPaul's 'Kitty Girl', but that wasn't the big shocker of the episode.

Britney Spears took the stage at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley, and girl didn't just bring it.....
SHE DESTROYED THE STAGE!!!
Our favorite Louisiana girl brought the house down right out the gate, with a scorching performance that included 'Work Bitch', 'Womanizer' (THAT BREAKDOWN!!!),'I Love Rock N' Roll, 'Breathe On Me', 'Touch of my Hand', 'Slave 4 U' and of course, 'Toxic'.
What has to be mentioned is Brit's energy on stage. Her smile was back, she moved like the pro we all fell in love with, and it was FIRE from start to finish.
Check out the FULL performance below!!
And don't......oh DON'T.....ever forget this moment:
You may not know Louisa Johnson, but the singer won season 12 of the UK 'X Factor', and while she's always consistently delivered bops, she's gone dropped her best yet!
'Yes' is a sure fire hit for Louisa, which takes us straight to the dance floor. The instant earworm of a chorus is contagious immediately, her vocals soar, and it's somewhat reminiscent of Christina Aguilera's 'Dirrty'.
