A drag queen has proven that the art of drag is all about reinvention, as she took to the stage dressed as “Lady Voldemort” while lip-syncing to Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman.”

The incredible clip shows drag queen Florida Man taking to the stage in a glittery black cape, and donning the trademark Lord Voldemort make-up.

She then begins an epic lip-sync to Grande’s hit, strutting across the stage in killer heels.

But it isn’t long before the performance gets a little risqué, when she whips her cloak off to reveal a black leotard.

Later in the performance, a man appears on stage, who strips for Lady Voldemort, before a wand battle ensues.

The amazing clip ends with Voldemort making out with her nemesis.

The hilarious clip has both Harry Potter fans and Ariana Grande fans going wild, as two interests that are seemingly completely opposite come together in the best way possible.

In a tweet after the event, Florida Man quipped: “For those of you asking – it’s the third movie. That clip of Lady Voldemort performing was from the third movie. Director’s cut.”

The performance has blown up online, with fans going wild for She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.

Speaking to BuzzFeed News, Florida Man explained that she grew up reading the books, but pointed to the lack of diversity as a problem.

“For a series with hundreds of characters, the fact that no characters were openly queer in the books or movies was discouraging,” she said.

“The character, for me, is about reimagining what a queerer universe for Harry Potter could look like.”

She added that she would love for either J.K. Rowling or Ariana Grande to see the performance.

Who knows – Lady Voldemort could go on to conquer the world of drag, making dark wizards of everyone.
