Miley Cyrus goes undercover in drag on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11
Miley Cyrus is going all out for her appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11.
The “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” singer is set to be a guest judge on the first episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11, which lands in the US on February 28.
However, that’s not her only role in the season premiere—with a sneak peak revealing that the singer is going undercover as a member of the crew.
“Our special guest judge Miley Cyrus gets in drag to sneak around undercover in the werkroom,” read a post from RuPaul’s Drag Race‘s Twitter account publishing footage of the performer on Tuesday (February 26).

In the video snippet, Cyrus dons a fake beard and cap to become Barry Johnson, also known as BJ, and meet the queens for the first time.
She says: “What’s up, it’s me, Barry Johnson, AKA BJ, AKA Miley Cyrus, AKA Hannah Montana.
“I am the guest judge for the week on the panel, but first I wanted to go undercover with the ladies. I’m going in as a crew member.
She adds: “I’m gonna go up and meet the queens for the first time, but they don’t know they’re meeting me!
“Season 11’s not going to know what hit ’em.”

In character as BJ, she says: “I love me some f**king beautiful women! I’m pretty excited about this.”
Sadly, the sneak peak cuts off before BJ makes his debut in the werk room and meets the queens.

Cyrus is not the only famous face set to appear on the season 11 judging panel.
In addition to all those amazing guest judges, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow will make a special guest appearance on the show, although she won’t be judging the queens.
As usual, 15 queens will fight it out for the title of ‘America’s Next Drag Superstar’ and $100,000, with season 10 fan favourite Vanessa Vanjie Mateo—or “Miss Vanjie”—making a return.
Other queens competing for the crown include Miss Black Universe A’keria C. Davenport, of the House of Davenport, and “life-sized Bratz doll” Ariel Versace.
The line-up features two more House of Davenport queens, Honey Davenport and Ra’jah D. O’Hara, professional dancer Brook Lynn Hytes and Las Vegas showgirl Kahanna Montrese.
RuPaul said: “Just when I think to myself—‘shedonealreadydonehadherses’—a new crop of killer queens sashay their way into my heart and leave me gagging for more.
“Dare I say, this might be the most sickening season of all time.”
