LOGO’s very own “Rupaul’s Drag Race” is one of the hottest reality shows out there today, and has truly put not only LOGO on the map but several of its stars over the past five seasons. The show has also birthed many spin offs, including “Drag U” where women get made over by past drag contestants, and an “All-Star” edition where some of the best contestants compete for the title at hand. Now the show is going on tour across America and is stopping in Huntington at the Paramount Theater tonight for it’s “Battle Of The Seasons”.
The show will be hosted by head judge and Rupaul’s bestie Michelle Visage who came into the show on Season 3 with a roar and a much larger (and better in my opinion) presence than her predecessors. We even did an interview with her a couple of months ago shortly after Season 5 finished. You can check it out here.
Some of the other contestants who will be lighting up the stage and dazzling you on Saturday night include past winners of the show including Season 5′s Jinkx Monsoon and the “Spooktacular” Sharon Needles. Also on hand is Sharon’s boyfriend and Season 5 runner up Alaska Thunderfuck, who came out of the woodwork in her season to prove that she can stand alone in her season and not just be a Sharon knock off. Fellow Season 5 competitor and runner up Detox will also be there, who became quite famous for “Boy Is A Bottom” a parody version of Alicia Keys “Girl On Fire” which she did with Season 4 contestant Willam and fellow drag queen Vicky Vox.
New York Natives Ivvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvy Winters and Phi Phi O’ Hara will also be on hand as well as Jersey girl Carmen Carrera and Mimi Imfurst, who is good and lifting fellow queens. Hehe. All in all, it should be a great time if you are a die hard Drag Race fan like me. Check out Paramount’s website for more information. This should be one that is not to miss!
