Ever since she was announced as the first guest judge of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11, fans of Miley Cyrus have been chomping at the bit to see what the 26-year-old pop star would do to shock the newest batch of queens. Now, they have their answer.
In a new sneak peek posted on World of Wonder’s Instagram account, Cyrus is shown going undercover as a male crew member named “BJ” to get an unencumbered look at the season’s competitors. Sporting a fake beard, a pair of glasses and an authentic stagehand outfit, the singer disappears into her new identity.
“I am the guest judge on this week’s panel, but first, I wanted to go undercover with the ladies,” Cyrus says in her confessional clip. “So I’m going in as a crew member. They’re never gonna know what hit ‘em.”
Cyrus is just the first of a stacked cast of guest judges for season 11, including stars like pop singer Troye Sivan, reality star Tiffany Pollard, actress and producer Lena Waithe, actress Cara Delevigne and many more.
It’s clear that Cyrus has been a fan of the show for years, especially since she performed with 30 drag queens, many of whom had appeared on Drag Race, at the 2015 VMAs. Even in the initial trailer for the season, Cyrus can be seen living her dreams; “Are you freaking out? Because I’m freaking out,” she said in one clip.
The season premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race will air Thursday, February 28 at 9 p.m. EST on VH1.
