"Drama Queen" was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2007, performed in English by DQ. This was the first appearance of a solo drag act in Contest history (Slovenia having previously been represented by drag trio Sestre).
In this song DQ describes herself as the "drama queen" and urges her listeners to join her for a party.
As Denmark had not finished the previous Contest in the top ten, this song had to be performed in the semi-final. It was performed 12th, following Albania's Frederik Ndoci with "Hear My Plea" and preceding Croatia's Dragonfly & Dado Topić with "Vjerujem u ljubav". At the close of voting, it received 45 points, placing it 19th in a field of 28 and thus ensuring that Denmark would have to qualify from the semi-final at the next Contest.
Unusually, the song had also failed to qualify for the Danish national semi-final, but reached the final after securing a so-called "wildcard", before eventually winning the competition.
