Season 6 of "RuPaul's Drag Race" is a very Idolicious one. Season 8 "American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert judged the season premiere, original "Idol" judge Paula Abdul is set to guest-star on a future episode, and among this year's competing queens are not one but two "Idol" alums: Season 7 "American Idol" finalist Danny Noriega, aka Adore Delano, and Season 1 "Australian Idol" fourth-placer Courtney Act.

This week, the two ex-Idols didn't lip-synch for their lives — they saaaaang for their lives, taking on the dual roles of Good Penny and Bad Penny in the show's off-off-off-off-off-off-Broadway smash, "Shade: The Rusical." Neither of these queens sashayed away with a victory on their respective "Idol" seasons years ago, but this week on "Drag Race," they certainly both delivered Tony-winning performances in their kinky boots.

But now it's time to ask the Rusical question...Ru sang it best? Watch Act 1 (starring Courtney as Good Penny) and Act 2 (with Adore as the fish-oil-swilling Bad Penny) HERE, and remember, it ain't over till the fish lady sings.
