Adele Gives Drag Queen The Thrill Of Her Life On Stage

Needless to say, the queen was left starstruck.

Australian concertgoers got two Adeles for the price of one Tuesday night. Well, sort of. 

At her Feb. 28 performance at Perth’s Domain Stadium, Adele gave local drag queen Feminem the surprise of her life by inviting her onstage. Coincidentally, Feminem is both a DJ and an Adele impersonator, Billboard reports

Day One Adele Fans filmed the moment the two divas met and uploaded it to their Facebook page

“I impersonate you professionally for a job,” Feminem told the star, before showcasing some surprise vocals on a verse of “Rumor Has It,” as seen in the video above.  

After the show, the drag queen shared photos of the experience on Instagram

“Adele, you have [sent] my world into the most insane tail spin I’ve ever experienced,” a starstruck Fenimem later gushed on Facebook, before asking, “Did last night actually happen?

A longtime LGBTQ rights advocate, Adele is making a habit out of making her shows extra special for her most diehard fans, many of whom identify as queer. At a 2016 concert at Denmark’s Forum Copenhagen, she invited a gay couple onstage to get engaged onstage. 

If all that love doesn’t inspire you to buy tickets to the next Adele show immediately, we don’t know what will.
