Meet Brazilian ‘Queen of the Universe’ Finalist Grag Queen
We’re already down to the Finals on Queen of the Universe, and only three drag queens remain to compete for the title. That includes Grag Queen, who’s up against Ada Vox and Aria B. Cassadine in this week’s grand finale.
Grag, aka Grégory Mohd, has shown off her singing talent and personality with four performances over the course of the season so far. The queen, who is from Brazil, has already released music and has an impressive TikTok following.
Meet ‘Queen of the Universe’ Finalist Grag Queen
Grégory Mohd is 26 years old. He was born in Canela, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Mohd called his hometown a “tiny, tiny little place.” Grag was challenged to sing the Brazilian national anthem for the show, and she pulled it off flawlessly until she forgot the lyrics part of the way through.
Grag also shared that the drag scene in Brazil is “huge,” and the drag queens are very competitive. Her first language is Portuguese, and she joked that her strategy for the show was to act like she didn’t understand what people were saying. She also shared that she would never compete on the typical Drag Race show, because she doesn’t know how to do things like sew.
As for Grag’s name, she explained, “I’m a Grag Queen. It’s more than a drag queen, because actually, I know it doesn’t look like it, but I’m a man. And my name is Grégory. So a Grégory who does drag.”
Earlier this year, Grag released an EP called DESPERTA, which you can listen to on Spotify. She also has a single called “Bota Fé.” Grag uploads her music on YouTube and TikTok, where she has over 2 million followers.
Grag’s Journey on the Show So Far
“Welcome to the Brazilian fantasy!” Grag said as her entrance quote on Queen of the Universe. Throughout the competition, she’s performed songs such as “Rehab” by Amy Winehouse, “Dream a Little Dream of Me” by Ella Fitzgerald, and “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper.
She also teamed up for a duet with fellow contestant Rani Ko-HE-Nur. They performed the original song “Damn That Man” during Week 4. In all of Grag’s performances, she shows off her personality through her voice and stage presence. Is it enough to take her to the top? We’ll find out soon.
Grag is up against fellow finalists Ada Vox and Aria B. Cassadine in this week’s grand finale, which will be available to stream on Thursday, December 30, on Paramount Plus. Until then, you can stream “Damn That Man” on Spotify.
