If you've got the spare time, this is a well-researched article on lip-syncing, comparing straight and gay origins and uses, etc.

It's a very fun feature -- and you will rule the next cocktail party chatter!     Crazy?

Plus, it's an excerpt from Legendary Children: The First Decade of RuPaul’s Drag Race and the Last Century of Queer Life.

Thanks, JA, and don't miss the links throughout the article to some of Drag Race's most amazing "lip syncs for your life."

There's one with the late, great Natalie Cole as a guest judge, and she is so pleased by the over-the-top (yet perfectly on-point) performance of This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) that I got a little misty-eyed, to be sure.

Edit:  Oh, here's the Natalie link for those of you too busy for reading right now...

Bump... to get ahead of people asking for free invites to other torrent sites on the wrong board.    Fighting

Dida Ritz was amazing. That was my all time favorite performance on Drag Race till Sasha Velour and her rose petals. Brought the show to a whole new level.

Sasha's "third rose reveal" -- as you noted, in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgAw66DZ54E -- is, indeed, one of the most electrifying drag moments I've ever seen.  The crowd collectively lost their minds.

I definitely have plans to buy or borrow the Legendary Children book mentioned in original post -- here's a nice long excerpt:

Being from the New York City area I have seen so many drag artists over the years. Years ago I feel it was more of an art then it is now. I'll keep my eye out for the book.

Thanks for posting. Smiley
