What a difference a few years (and a VERY good wig) makes!

"American Idol" Season 7 alum Danny Noriega will compete in a totally different reality TV show these days -- with a totally different look.

Noriega, who made a name for himself thanks to his witty banter with Simon Cowell back in 2008, will compete in the sixth season of "RuPaul's Drag Race" as his alter-ego Adore Delano.

Sporting a giant pink wig, a leather skirt, tattoos and a fierce face, the 24-year-old looks ready to lip-sync for her life

"She's very, very vulgar, crazy. She's a party animal," Noriega told Yahoo! about performing as Adore. "She's fun. Just like no f---s are given, you know? Everything I can't do as Danny, I can do as her. She's just punk-rock. She's a punk-rock mermaid!"

We can't wait to see her in action when "RuPaul's Drag Race" returns to Logo in February.

See who Adore Delano will be competing against in the gallery above.
