The only contestant to compete in two seasons of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” finally served her particular brand of energy and crazy to gay Atlanta fans for two command-performance nights on Thursday and Friday.

One of the show’s most notorious queens joined the Dance Floor Divas show on Thursday (photos) and came back for more on Friday during the Fab Five show. Rocking three looks, Shangela was joined by fellow “Drag Race” alums and Atlanta girls Phoenix and Mariah.

She’s just the latest in a long line of “RuPaul” cast members in Atlanta. Revisit Burkhart’s guest spots by finalist Raven, former Atlantan Sonique and Vegas showgirl Shannel.
