Watch Lady Gaga Give Drag Queens a Pep Talk on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 9 Premiere: Exclusive

Nearly four years ago, Lady Gaga and RuPaul teamed up for a Studio 54-tastic duet on "Fashion" during Lady Gaga & the Muppets' Holiday Spectacular. Now, the pop star and the drag icon are back together for the season 9 premiere of RuPaul's Drag Race, which features Lady G as a guest judge.

Joining the cast in the workroom, Gaga offers them a pre-runway pep talk. "When you're having a bad day, just remember that I was nobody, and then I became somebody one day," Gaga tells the queens. "And it's the same right here," she said, nodding to Ru.

Best of all, Gaga leads the season 9 queens through a sing-along of RuPaul's breakthrough hit "Supermodel (You Better Work)." Watch it below. 

The RuPaul's Drag Race season 9 premiere airs 8 p.m. ET on VH1 (the show's new home) on Friday, March 24, as part of VH1's Fierce Fridays lineup hosted by Wendy Williams and Ross Matthews.
