Cate Blanchett performs in drag show in the Big Apple

Cate Blanchett gave a show-stopping performance of You Don’t Own Me at a drag show in New York.

The Oscar-winning actress swapped red carpet glamour for a sparkly gold bikini, heels and plenty of bling for her performance at the Big Apple’s Stonewall Inn.

Cate, who wore a frilly black jacket over her glitzy get-up, lip-synced to the Dusty Springfield track alone on stage, as the audience went crazy.

She then returned (in a different bra top) to provide back-up vocals for another singer’s version of Adele’s massive hit Hello.
