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.
