The winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11 has been crowned after a finale containing a memorable lip-sync sudden death match.

A’Keria C Davenport, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Silky Nutmeg Ganache and Yvie Oddly all made it to the final four and were in with a chance of being named America’s Next Drag Superstar.

It was whittled down to the final two, with Yvie and Brooke going head-to-head to win the crown.

After an intense final lip-sync battle to Lady Gaga’s Edge Of Glory, Yvie walked away with the title – and the 100,000 US dollar prize money.

Fans were quick to send their congratulations on Twitter.

One said: “I LOVE YVIE ODDLY WITY MY WHOLE HEART #dragracefinale.”
