Gay Twitter is melting down over her high-kicking, duck-walking performance.

“Sissy that walk” has officially been replaced with “walk that f**king duck” thanks to an epically gagworthy performance by Anetra during the season 15 premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

In the two-part premiere, the 16 queens opened up the season with a talent show to show off their charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and, well, talent. While many of the queens showed out, one, in particular, stole the show with her combination of voguing and Judo.

“You betta motherducking WALK, @iamanetra! 👠✨ Ru-live the One Night Only Talent Extravaganza on the #DragRace YouTube channel now & get your fix FRIDAYS at 8/7c, now on @mtv 👉 https://t.co/IawC3M8vGu”

Anetra, who hails from Las Vegas, duck-walked out on the stage, showing off her considerable skill, wowing the audiences both in the room — which included an utterly blown away celebrity guest judge Ariana Grande — and out in the world.

But that’s not all: As it turns out, the queen is also a former competitive Judo fighter who put those skills to use by first-hand striking and then high kicking through wooden planks held by Pit Stop member Bryce.

Everyone was gagged and fans rushed to Twitter to heap glowing praise on the drag star.

“@RuPaulsDragRace @iamanetra @MTV Talllllllllllent 👏🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆👏”

“@RuPaulsDragRace @iamanetra @MTV”

“@RuPaulsDragRace @iamanetra @MTV”

“@RuPaulsDragRace @iamanetra @MTV I’ve watched this an unhealthy amount of times. Instant classic and I can’t stop watching. @iamanetra is a superstar. Amazing performance !”

“@RuPaulsDragRace @iamanetra @MTV All of us”

“absolutely one of my FAVORITE talent shows ever, anetra fucking DEVOURED #dragrace”

The performance unsurprisingly landed Anetra in the top three alongside Jax, who did a dancing and tumbling routine during which she turned her hair into a jump rope, and Marica Marcia Marcia whose ballet performance to Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love To You” saw her pirouetting across the stage before humping a portrait of Ross Mathews.

While all three of the top talent performances were stellar, Anetra’s was a high kick above the rest, clinching the win for the Vegas queen.

It was a well-deserved victory and a truly thrilling way to kick off the new season.
