As the event was underway guests entered with excitement as to what was in store for the remaining of events. It was All Stars 3 winner Trixie Mattel's performance that really took the cake! Mattel made quite the entrance as she rode in on a Mattel Barbie Dream car before taking the stage. “We’re here to celebrate all different types of drag," Mattel stated. However, bitch, I hate getting in drag -- and that’s what inspired this song.”
The queen wowed in her performance donning what would be similar to a Dolly Parton piece.
