Pabllo Vittar has made history as the first drag queen to play Coachella.

On Saturday evening, the Brazilian pop star performed a powerful set to a packed crowd, during which many fans celebrated the big moment by tweeting out the hashtag "#VITTARCELLA."

Prior to this year's festival, Vittar was supposed to perform at Coachella 2020, which was canceled due to growing concern over the coronavirus. However, she more than made up for it this year with an electrifying performance of her Lady Gaga Chromatica remix, "Fun Tonight," before being joined onstage by Rina Sawayama to duet their new track, "Follow Me," which Vittar previously called a "perfect combination of our music styles."

Watch snippets from Vittar's performance below.
