Never have more iconic (or more baffling) words been uttered by a departing queen from the mainstage of RuPaul’s Drag Race. (Well, Tammie Brown comes pretty close.)

Despite being the first queen eliminated from season 10, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo’s mesmerizing exit (backwards and in high heels, remember) inspired memes, tweets and celebrity shout-outs and an overwhelming demand to see more of this charismatic queen. Guess what? Miss Vanjie’s pulling a “Shangela” and she’ll be back to compete once again! She’s coming back with a “Vanj-eance” for RPDR season 11, premiering March 11 on VH1, but can the queen live up to the memes? You be the judge!

Here’s the best part! You’ll see if Miss Vanjie survived the first four challenges Mama Ru gives when she makes a live appearance as the headliner in the Phoenix Pride VIP Experience on Sunday, April 7, exclusive to VIP ticket holders.
