Every so often, someone will claim that a RuPaul’s Drag Race group performance was “even better than ‘Read U Wrote U’.”

These people are wrong.

While there are a few Drag Race group performance that have provided genuine moments of TV magic – All Stars 3’s ‘Drag Up Your Life’ and Drag Race UK’s frock-destroying ‘Break Up, Bye Bye’ are notable stand-outs – as a game-changing jaw-dropper, All Stars 2’s ‘Read U Wrote U’ remains unmatched.

You’ll be pleased to know the, that the girls responsbily for the jewel in All Stars 2’s already sparkling crown – Alaska, Detox, Katya and Roxxxy Andrews – have reunited via the power of technology to recreate the track.

With Detox using a cartoon avatar while recovering from surgery, all the moments you want (and maybe don’t want) are effortlessly recreated – and the queens’ reaction to Roxxxy’s famously maligned verse (a 45-seconds so wildly unpopular it’s somehow gone full circle and become iconic), is worth its weight in gold.

Check out the girls’ quarantine efforts and then relive the (unmatched!) original below:
