RuPaul’s Drag Race Look Back At The Finals and “RuPaul” the show is coming!!

It’s been a week since the Drag Race Finals and all that came with it and on Monday the RuPaul show will start.

What happened at the finals and what can we expect from Ru? We’ll talk about all this here.

Well let’s first say: what a fabulous final!! One of the best in a while.

While some finals dragged on as we waited for the crowning, this one was filled to the brim:
Each top four queen had their own moment to talk, do a sketch and share the stage with Ru.

There was music (Christina and the Queens performing “Cover Girl”), Queens from the past, Vanjie!! And Ru seemingly living her best life joking and glowing. A joy.


Another highlight was Michelle Visage who got her deserved moment to talk about Breast Implant Illness Awareness. Michelle is such a big part of this show she should have a section each year. It would be great if she could perform one of the songs she has been doing on the road with the Rugirls one day.

Then on to the lip-syncs: Silky vs Brooke Lynn, Yvie vs A’Keria: the right result in both cases. It was sad to see Silky so scared and seemingly already giving up before it all started. Apparently she had been suffering from a social media hate campaign that tarnished her confidence. Very sad.

The big finale: Yvie vs Brooke Lynn. One of those historic lip-syncs we’ll be talking about in years to come. While Yvie was absolutely shining, and was the deserved winner, Brooke Lynn would have won every other year. Her “Reveal” coat, her dancing: stunning. But Yvie was unbeatable she drew everyone’s attention in her mirrored dress and majestic poses. She seemed already a star and the audience lapped her up.

As the winner Yvie of course quickly released some music and a video that was absolutely on brand Yvie style!!


Now it’s been a whole week without Drag Race but not without RuPaul. Mama Ru has been doing the chat show rounds promoting the Rupaul show. Her new daily live show, that is more than just TV.
Watch one interview here:

We might also see Michelle Visage back soon in the UK as our tiny diva is rumored to be signing on for Strictly!!

But before that don’t forget: Drag Race UK is coming soon!! New Queens, new styles new accents! Are you excited? I am!!

We’ll leave you with Ru talking about LGBT rights and Donald Trump on the View this week, because … Well, because!!
