A Newcastle-born drag queen was overjoyed to sing a duet with country music royalty, Shania Twain during her Queen of Me tour.

Drag queen, Samantha Stone, whose real name is Josh Bamling, was born in Newcastle however currently resides in London.

Samantha was invited up on the stage to sing a duet with the iconic singer, and they performed her top five hit, That Don’t Impress Me Much.

As the pair took turns in singing the track to one another line by line, Samantha was decked out in a leopard print outfit, inspired by the outfit Shania wore in the music video for the hugely popular song.

In the line where Shania references Hollywood actor Brad Pitt, the singer changed the lyrics to compliment the Newcastle drag queen, as she sang: “Ok, so you’re Samantha Stone, that DOES impress me much.”
