On this Friday’s finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race, a special cameo is made by RuPaul’s cousin, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker.

“Now, to explain the rules of the Lip Sync Smackdown, please welcome United States Senator – and my cousin – Cory Booker,” RuPaul said in a sneak peek clip.

“Thank you cousin RuPaul,” Booker said in a video message. “You all know the rules so I just want o say thank you. In life we were not born to fit in, we were born to stand out, to make the most out of ourselves and always elevate and enrich the lives of others.”

The senator then quoted the late Rep. John Lewis, “Never let anyone, any person or any force, dampen, dim or diminish your light.”

He added, “Thank god for you, thank god for America and thank god for my cousin RuPaul.”

“Thank you senator,” said RuPaul as he moved on to explain the challenge. “My queens, on this wheel are each of your faces – I’ll spin the wheel and where it stops will determine which queen lip syncs first.”

The season finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race will air Friday April 30 at 8 p.m. on VH1.
