Butterfly stunt goes horribly wrong on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' finale

Yahoo Entertainment

It was the grand finale of RuPaul's Drag Race Thursday night as the top four contestants- Eureka, Asia O'Hara, Aquaria, and Kameron Michaels- battled it out to be crowned America's Next Drag Superstar.During one of the last lip sync smackdowns of the season, between O'Hara and Michaels, O'Hara attempted a stunt that depended on the participation of living butterflies. Unfortunately for O'Hara, it was a flutter flop when nothing happened. While performing to Janet Jackson's "Nasty," O'Hara first attempted to open up a bracelet cage to release butterflies into the air, but the butterflies seemed to be having stage fright. The drag queen even tried blowing at the butterflies to give them a little nudge, but it was a total fail and that wasn't even the most embarrassing part. When O'Hara opened up her coconut-sized bra to release all of the butterflies... none of them took off. The butterflies remained within the net of the bra, while some eventually fell to the floor only when O'Hara made big enough dance moves that forced them to fall out. The stunt fail created a major butterfly effect on twitter, as fans hilariously tweeted:

Sadly, the butterflies weren't the only L's Asia was taking. After losing the lip sync smackdown against Michaels, she was sent sashaying away, while Aquaria was ultimately named this season's winner. And when RuPaul asked Aquaria if there was anything she'd like to say, Aquaria responded, "Sometimes in life, you're not always given a second chance. But if you do, take advantage of it and go out with a bang!"
