Discussion in 'RuPaul's Drag Race' started by dUb, Jan 16, 2019.
I wonder if it's going to be some RIDICULOUS GOOPERY of having them all lipsync against each other other than the top two...
So top two go through, the other 8 lip sync (1 from the remainers, 1 from the leavers) and the top two pick who goes through or something?
And if so, WHEN WILL RU EVER LEARN ?
There was a press release yesterday about it, here's what it says about the format:
According to a VH1 press release, the episode’s twist will involve a “midseason lip-sync smackdown” between the eliminated queens (Masters, Farrah Moan, Gia Gunn, Latrice Royale) and the final six queens still in the competition (Valentina, Trinity The Tuck, Manila Luzon, Naomi Smalls, Monét X Change, Monique Heart).
“For the first time in Drag Race Herstory, all of the eliminated All Stars get a chance to return to the competition,” the release reads. “But first they have to send home a competing All Star.“
So kind of what I said then. Why only four “LIFE”s though?
AND WHEN WILL SHE EVER LEARN
Could be interesting if Latrice can pull it out of the bag, though- I don’t see the other returning queens as amazing lip-syncers...possibly Jasmine at a push.
It's a shame that the four who have left are 75% unworthy of even being considered for a return
Yeah, it's a twist that works better if you feel somebody has been unfairly sent home, but Jasmine and Latrice barely made an effort, Farrah wasn't an All Star by anybody's standards, and Gia was fantastic television but dreadful at the actual competition.
IKR. Thank God for Farrah Moan
I guess Manilla and Monet will be safe, so it'll be last week's 'bottom four' versus the four eliminated queens?
As @Diddy rightly pointed out last week, the four of them stood there trying to be sassy and furious looked like a right load of old crud. Not exactly the AS2 return, was it? More like LOOKS LIKE THE BIN MEN HAVEN’T BEEN YET
I reckon Latrice will be the only queen who gets back in the competition
Sadly I think that this will be at the expense of Monique
I have to say I LIVE for Latrice's PETTINESS, and also, she looked GORGEOUS
I'm glad Latrice is potentially getting a second chance. A whole series without even seeing her lip sync would have been such a fucking waste.
Ooh it would be good if they went up against the queen who sent them home
Would that work out?
Valentina v Farrah
Monique v Latrice
Can’t remeber the rest but it must double up somewhere
Manila vs Gia
Jasmine vs Trinity
Yep, that works out! How convenient...
Would be sad to lose a strong player like Monique though, much as I'd like Latrice to come back.
Although that'd leave Naomi and Monet safe, which doesn't make a lot of sense in terms of last week's challenge.
It's all so CONFUSING.
Unless the other two lip sync against each other?
I guess they did their lipsync.
I wouldn't really care of Monique went, I've found her VERY annoying this season. The brown cow print on everything, the attempt to meme the worst of her phrases. If you want to know how a TRUE queen does it, learn from Alyssa. Nothing she said in AS2 was a repetition of her own season.
I don’t care if she goes either, although I’d obviously rather have her than so-called belov’d Latrice. And if I hear her saying “America” ONE MORE TIME
for some reason - “Why don’t you like her?” “Oh it’s the BROWN COW PRINT” - but EXACTLY!
I think me and Miss Beverley are Drag Race twins...
Having said that, I wouldn’t mind Latrice coming back if that elimination kicks her arse into gear but yes, at whose expense?
Monique doesn’t deserve to go yet (particularly since she won two weeks ago and was a comfortable third last week), But I wouldn’t be sad if it was her.
And to think you once called me BORING
So each of the 4 eliminated queens chooses who to face off against...
So basically it's yet another episode dedicated to flogging Ru's latest album.
Shame, the concept has the potential to be fabulous - if grossly unfair - if they were lip syncing to actual classics instead of a bunch of tired, low energy vocoder workouts.
that's not really fair though is it? they should have only been able to choose one of the bottom 4.
and what vor said - what a wasted opportunity to have them lip syncing to decent songs.
How many sales of his new tat will this even generate? What a self-serving TWAT
They at least ought to let them lipsync to songs by RPDR alumni.
I mean most of them are considerably less half arsed and sell considerably more than Ru herself, don't they?
AND I wouldn't be surprised if Ru has something in all their contracts that she's entitled to 10% of all future income in perpetuity anyway.
I quite like SUPER QUEEN to be honest, but let's face it, she ain't done much since SISSY THAT WALK.
But yes, what an opportunity lost. Imagine Latrice vs Monet with an all time CLASSIC
What is a LaLaPaRuZa? I don't understand.
It's a play on Lollapalooza, a popular US alternative music festival.
Oh, I should have known that.
I will be pissed if Monique goes.
I think it will be pretty clear by the style of song who is the favoured performer to stay.
Total missed opportunity on the song front
Does Ru have any soul queen ballads for Latrice?
I called it halfway through the episode, but still really happy with how that went down. The first three duels were pretty one-sided and obvious, but that Sissy That Walk battle was jaw dropping.
Now, DON'T FUCK IT UP (again) LATRICE
Of the other lip syncs, Jasmine clearly couldn't be arsed and didn't seem to know the words.
Poor Farrah seemed like her wig was limiting her movements a lot, but she pulled it back. Valentina was iconic though. Totally living the song.
I couldn't tell you a thing Gia did because Naomi was mesmerising. She didn't do much but she looked so fabulous she didn't even need to.
