It truly is the age of Aquaria. 

RuPaul's Drag Race named a winner for season 10 tonight, and while we'd have been shocked to hear it at the beginning of the season, we're kinda thrilled here at the end. She really killed it tonight, as she has the past few weeks of the competition. 

Tonight's finale featured a first for the series, with three of the final four being allowed to lip sync for the crown. Asia O'Hara was eliminated after her first challenge with Kameron Michaels, probably due to the fact that her attempt at a trick failed more miserably than maybe anything we've ever seen on this show. It was like a whole other level of secondhand embarrassment.

Basically, Asia meant to have living butterflies fly out of her wrists and her boobs, but when she released them, no butterflies flew. They were all either dead or stunned inside Asia's outfit, so her trick fell flat and everything felt awkward. It was no surprise when Kameron was named the winner of that lip sync, but it was a surprise when both Eureka and Aquaria got to advance after their lip sync. 

The final performance, to Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande's "Bang Bang," was the only real showstopping lip sync of the night. Aquaria even shot sparks out of her hand! She was really the one we found ourselves watching, so it only made sense that she ended up winning. 

For what it's worth, Aquaria also won our Twitter poll about which queen should win, so clearly the right winner has been crowned.
