    Is Cheryl finally going to serve something more than tepid?

    It's hard to see anyone other than Crystal going home so far. I guess it depends on if they go for two from the losing team, or one from each.

    Yep, pretty one sided.

    Cheryl was the best of the other three, but I didn't think she was that great if this is her schtick. I think I'd quite like a three way lip sync.

    I'd probably favour Divina as winner, but I think any of them could take it.

    They are being rather FREE AND EASY with those Ru Peter badges. I can get behind them all being winners, though.

    The Vivienne finally did a half decent lip sync.

    The thrust of that episode did almost feel a little contrived in making it clear this isn't The Vivienne Show, but I'm pleased about that, as Baga and Divina absolutely are better than also rans and very worthy contenders.

    Pleased Blu delivered in the challenge as well, although I didnt think her runway was as good as was made out. Perhaps I just expected too much after last week.

    I'm kind of hoping this episode was Cheryl's moment of glory and that she'll be off next, but isn't she supposed to be a great lip syncer?

    Kind of disappointed we seem to be getting more Graham Norton than Alan Carr, though.

    What a fabulous episode!

    I think Divina should have won, really. But Blu and Baga did very well too and it made sense as they were all really in sync.

    Crystal pulling off her hat to reveal that HIDEOUS Whatever Happened To Baby Jane wig was certainly a choice.

    Jade definitely showed Geri up in terms of how to be a great guest judge.

    I suspect Cheryl will do well if it's a marketing challenge, as she certainly has the gift of the gab.

    They're obviously setting up Divina for a tough week, though of course that could be misleading. Blu also strikes me as most likely to come unstuck.

    It's hard to see Blu or Cheryl being top 3.

    Crystal had some fine moments and will make a great all star at some point.

    I thought Blu was really good tonight. Just behind Divina for me, and actually I thought she was better in the challenge. Baga I think is great, but it’s always the same old schtick- I don’t understand how that outfit was “Day at the Races” either.

    Best lip sync so far but still not a classic. Severely lacking this season. Right person went home though. Wonder when we’ll get a double save?

    Having said that, my ranking for tonight based on everything before the lip sync:


    1. Divina
    2. Blu

    3. Baga
    4. Cheryl

    5. Crystal
    6. The Vivienne

    Blu was my favourite this week but their group were excellent

    The right bottom two and an improved lipsync but still lacking

    What an episode! This really is the best series of Drag Race since All Stars 2!

    The right winners for sure and I think a joint win was a good decision here. I really love Divina, what a lovely person she is. Just genuinely nice. Blu was great too this week and Baga was just hilarious as usual. They all worked well together and it was nice to see Baga away from The Vivienne for once, as it brought out another side of her. It was nice to see her have a bit of humility - her brashness is definitely a front for insecureness.

    Cheryl was the best of the other side, but she still wasn't as good as any of the other three on Frock Destroyers. She's a decent queen but I still think she's second tier. As for Crystal, she wasn't great in the challenge but I did like her runway look. I actually think she was better than The Vivienne in that lipsync, shit wig reveal aside. But they were never gonna get rid of one of the frontrunners like that. The Vivienne is an excellent queen but I just don't LIKE her. I did think that maybe her being in the Bottom 2 might make her less of a bitch and more humble but it seems that going by the teaser, next week that's not the case.

    I really can't see anything other than a Viv/Baga/Divina top 3 at this point.

    Jade was fantastic and she can come back anytime. She always has been my favourite member of Little Mix.

    I echo everyone else, that episode killed it, great humour, great challenge, lots of talent on show and Jade was a star

    Did we realise the guy in background producing the song was Ian Masterson of Trouser Enthusiasts (Dannii, Saint Etienne, Planet Perfecto) fame?

    Yeah, I clocked that. I'd have been OMG at him more than MNEK tbh, but MNEK WAS great.
