Pabllo Vittar makes ‘herstory’ in Indio with a gorgeous Coachella performance. The Brazillian drag queen was supposed to take the Coachella stage in 2020 but had to wait out the pandemic. Coming back in full force this year, her giddy-inducing, crowd-pleasing performance of her Lady Gaga Chromatica remix, “Fun Tonight” was well worth the wait.

The Drag artist was humbled by the roaring cheers of the crowd. For many, this was more than just another Coachella performance, this was a proud moment of LGBTQ history in the making.

It remains a mystery to me why @pabllovittar isn’t a renowned international pop star.
That #Coachella performance was unlike anything I’ve ever seen before (aside from her compatriot Anitta yesterday). Brazilian pop queens are built different. The basic girlies should be scared. pic.twitter.com/yZzUESgq92

She was later joined on stage by British-Japanese pop artist Rina Sawayama to duet their new track, “Follow Me.”
