She's nothing if not a PROFESSIONAL.

The audience at LA's GLAAD Media Awards were treated to the ultimate in Beyoncé tributes last week, with RuPaul's Drag Race star Shangela performing a seven-minute mega-mix of Queen B's hits.

The performance was all the more significant because Beyoncé herself was in the audience with husband Jay-Z, giving Shangie a well-deserved standing ovation.

The famous couple were in attendance to accept GLAAD's Vanguard Award for their ally-ship and cultural contributions, with Beyoncé spotted mouthing "how great" as she danced along to Shangela's heart-pumping dedication.

“I’ve already cried,” Beyoncé told the audience as she accepted her award later in the evening.

“I put a run in my stocking from Shangela.”

All we can say is HALLELOO!
