SPOILER ALERT: After nearly an hour of reunion interviews and delightfully draggy festivities — Willam revealed what she did that got her eliminated from the show earlier this season, Latrice Royale was awarded the Miss Congeniality award, and RuPaul interviewed the three finalists Phi Phi O’Hara, Sharon Needles, and Chad Michaels — Drag Race host RuPaul finally crowned America’s Next Drag Superstar.

Check back later this evening for a full interview with Sharon Needles, America’s Next Drag Superstar.
