The hype has been massive for Lady Gaga's Drag Race debut, and boy did Mother Monster deliver, bringing all the 🔥 possible.

Season nine of the RuPaul show kicked off last night (March 24) in the US, with Gaga making her long-awaited debut in the best possible way - by fooling all of the contestants.

The superstar entered the room with her own perfect illusion in play and her face partly obscured by a headpiece.

The queens were pretty damn impressed from the off, unaware that the person who just walked in was the real deal.

"That's a damn good Lady Gaga impersonator," remarked contestant Charlie Hides.

Heck, Gaga even recorded a backstage segment as a new contestant Ronnie, declaring: "I'm New Jersey's number one Lady Gaga impersonator."

However, before long her real identity was slowly but surely revealed, leading to emotional scenes when the contestants realised that actual Lady Gaga was in their midst - so much so that Eureka O'Hara even burst into tears.

"I have been the closest to death, and you've pulled me out of it," Eureka said. "You don't even realise what you do for people, and how much you inspire people like me and all of us."

Gaga then told the contestants: "I have always really admired the craftsmanship that goes into what you all do. Drag has for me been an opportunity to leave myself, when I didn't want to be me and I felt so completely out of place when I was in high school.

"Drag has just been part of my life for the longest time. It's just really an honour for me to be here, to be here with you."

Well, it's safe to say she definitely did not f**k it up.
