RuPaul's Drag Race: 13 Favorite Moments From "The Unauthorized Rusical"

at .

RuPaul loves highlighting iconic performers and memorable celebrities. We've seen challenges featuring Madonna, Diana Ross, Britney Spears, and the Kardashians to name a few. During RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10 Episode 8, it was Cher's turn.

For the Maxi Challenge, RuPaul assigned each of the queens a role from Cher's legendary music and acting history. They had to bring the character to life in choreography and acting. Plus, to make it more challenging, each of the contestants had to sing live.

That's right! No lip syncs for  this Maxi Challenge. But who didn't hit the right key?

Asia O'Hara and The Vixen failed to shine as the legendary music icon. The third time was not the charm as The Vixen was eliminated from the competition.

In addition to the musical, RuPaul got slap-heavy during the Mini Challenge, Asia had a heart-to-heart with one of the contestants, and another Drag Race winner returned.

Below, we picked out 13 moments from "The Unauthorized Rusical" that made us listen to Cher music on repeat. Which moment was your favorite?

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10 airs Thursdays on VH1 at 8/7c.

13. Chad Michaels Returns

Chad Michaels Returns
RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 1 winner Chad Michaels makes another return to the Werk Room; only this time, it's on the TV screen. The famous celebrity impersonator channels her most iconic role as Cher for this week's video message. It's no wonder she won her Snatch Game during RuPaul's Drag Race Season 4. Chad Michaels is amazing as Cher!

12. Hold My Fish Mask

Hold My Fish Mask
The fish mask is a polarizing topic; some people love it while others hate it. However, you can't deny that it was hilarious seeing Asia have to hold the mask during her conversation on the couch. She refused to rip it off! But when she did, we knew why. (The makeup did look like a mustache.)

11. Empty Lunch Boxes

Empty Lunch Boxes
Miz Cracker has mentioned bits and pieces about her past, like how her parents were artists and they didn't have any money. For RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10 Episode 8, she finally revealed the extent of the situation ... and it was shocking. How did she not say anything? She did a good thing by opening up about her past; it helped to connect with her even more.

10. The Cannon

The Cannon
If we could turn back time, we'd be rewatching the scene of the cannon being brought on stage and Eureka singing on it. "Rockstar Cher" was out in full force, black body suit and all.

9. Lady Bunny's Drag Race

Lady Bunny's Drag Race
For the Mini Challenge, the queens had to come up with an insult that would cause RuPaul to slap a contestant. Miz Cracker went in a different direction and brought up RuPaul's longtime friend as her insult. RuPaul loved it enough to fake "stab" her instead of the slap.

8. Aquaria Wants Friends

Aquaria Wants Friends
Aquaria isn't the most welcoming and social queen, but it was great to see her take the first step forward. Moving to the other side of the Werk Room to be with the remaining queens will help her bond with them and loosen her up a bit. The new warmer Aquaria is a much more interesting character.

7. Grindr Hookup

Grindr Hookup
Billy Eichner was having NONE of Asia O'Hara's Cher performance. He delivered one of the funniest lines of the night! Hopefully he had a good time on his fake Grindr hookup; he was missed on the judging panel.

6. I'm Snapping, Ru!

I'm Snapping, Ru!
Perfecting Cher's iconic voice takes a lot of work to get it right. Eureka O'Hara needed to go back to the drawing board as even RuPaul noticed how bad it was. Her, Monet X Change and even Eureka were falling over themselves laughing at how much it ventured away from Cher.

5. You Wear It Well

You Wear It Well
For her slap, Monet X Change used one of RuPaul's songs against her. Her quip about wearing the outfit was a clever joke that even RuPaul admitted it was brilliant. If Asia had not delivered a bomb, Monet could've snatched the prize.

4. Cher Or Kameron?

Cher Or Kameron?
From the look of Kameron Michaels' makeup/outfit for her performance, it wasn't a surprise she started the musical. Kameron looked like Cher! It was shocking how much they were alike. She killed it during the Maxi Challenge!

3. Glitter Explosion

Glitter Explosion
For the glitter-inspired runway, Aquaria pulled out another incredible look. Her heavenly gown had the perfect amount of glitter, as well as interesting touches like the mask with glitter and the glowing crown. This queen should consider becoming a full-time fashion designer because she has talent!

2. The Sonny And Cher Show

The Sonny And Cher Show
You can't talk about Cher's past without bringing up The Sonny and Cher Show. Monet X Change, in her role as the variety show Cher, had the most confidence and funniest zingers during her number. She was a real contender for the top prize and she delivered one of the best vocals of the night.

1. Slap!

Slap!
It was the slap heard around the Werk Room! During the Mini Challenge, RuPaul accidentally slapped Asia during the fake slap. The slap was funny, but the reactions of the other queens and Asia's response back to RuPaul was what made it the best moment of the week. All of the contestants were jumping up and down over the misfire, and Asia was ready to takeover the show and become a millionaire. Watch out for episodes of Asia O'Hara's Drag Race.
