Soul Train Realness & Punk Rock Rage On RuPaul's Drag Race


Last night’s episode saw the queens singing — not something most of them felt comfortable doing! It was the same song, over and over — RuPaul’s “Superstar,” but each contestant had a different version. Manila Luzon grooved to a disco cover; Alexis Mateo rapped her hip-hop track; Shangela’s ditty was country; Yara Sofia warbled as a half-naked pop star and Carmen Carrera played a drugged and depressed reggae artist. The winner of the challenge? Raja, of course. Even though she didn’t really evoke a drag queen, her punk performance impressed guest judges Jody Watley and Carmen Electra. It seems inevitable that Raja will be crowned winner of the show, but I think I might be team Manila now. She never fails to bring it. Alexis Mateo is also a strong contender, but she’ll never win — too nice!

Of course, the best moment of the evening was when Michelle Visage exposed her breasts. You’ve got to expect the unexpected on RPDR.
