The self-proclaimed Nancy Drews of the drag world (aka Reddit users in the subreddit r/rupaulsdragrace) have stumbled upon Maltese singer Jessika’s performance at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, and it seems they’ve loved it enough to post it on their threads and make it a meme.
The whole thing started with a screenshot of a robot dancing on stage during San Marino’s performance. The robot was brandishing a ‘Justice For Valentina’ placard, and the international community of fans instantly jumped on the bandwagon claiming the sign was a tongue-in-cheek reference to the supposedly-robbed drag queen from season nine, Valentina.
Eliminated for not knowing the words to her lip-sync, Valentina’s die-hard fans have been calling for justice for their fave for over a year now, and seeing Malta’s Jessika celebrate this sent them into a tailspin.
Within the comments section the users also meme’d the infamous rap verse of San Marino’s entry, adding emojis after every second word in an ‘in-joke’ reference to Shangela (another top drag queen) and her iconic confrontation with Mimi Imfurst.
But the best part of the whole situation is that Jessika’s original message is just as shady as the drag references. The slogan #JusticeForValentina is a dig at Valentina Monetta, the Sammarinese singer who took part in the Eurovision Song Contest four times.
