Ok y’all. Last night I was at the RuPaul’s Drag Race Tour Kick Off Event. It was insane! A video hilights clip that I made is above. I didn’t get a lot (there were other things I wanted to focus on!), but there’s some great Sharon action, and a taste of Latrice! Shangela Emcee’d. We all watched the Reunion Special. Before the special, the Top 3 came out and gave little speeches (Sharon’s is on the video).
Chad Michaels is (a) stunning, (b) SO TALL, and (c) looks a lot like Joanna Gleason.
When Phi Phi came out, she was booooo’d!
After the reunion special, most of the girls from Season 4 each did a lip synch performance. Jiggly was FANTASTIC…and a mess (and her two sexy-as-sin back-up dancers sweetened the deal). Dida Ritz was pretty fierce too. Lil Kenya Michaels was NOT there, sadly. Phi Phi’s routine was really uncomfortable—no one was digging it; it was sad. And Latrice!!!! Latrice was so fabulous. I did grab a little bit of video of her performance—the crowd went NUTS for her. A bit of Sharon’s routine is included as well, so I’ll let that speak for itself. I will add that afterwards she gave a speech about how beauty is the establishment of self-identity which was rather touching.
(side note—the 30 Day Video Challenge prompt for today was “what do you like to do in your spare time?” so I’ve decided that this counts)
