This week in RuPaul’s Drag Race, the last four queens sing and dance to the end with the debut of Ru’s new song “Lucky”. Along with that, the runway is all about drag excellence, and queens bring looks that define them and show off their best drag. The following article breaks down the challenges and eliminations for Season 13, Episode 14, with plenty of spoilers ahead.
The consequences of the past week
With Olivia Lux missing RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13 has its top four: Rosé, Gottmik, Symone, and Kandy Muse. The queens are all excited to be in this together, and they remember where they all stand in terms of highs and lows. Rosé has won three times and has never lip-synched. Gottmik has never lip-synched, either, winning two of the most notable challenges: the Snatch Game and the Ball Challenge. Meanwhile, Symone has the most wins at four, but she’s lip-synched twice. Finally, Kandy is the most recent winner after roasting, but she’s lip-synced three times.
The Maxi-Challenge: Luck
In classic RuPaul In fashion, the top four of maxi-challenge is a rendition of Ru’s newest song, “Lucky.” The queens have to create their own original verses for the song, and then they will work with choreographer Jamal Sims on their dance numbers. After this, everything will come together in a colorful performance.
In addition to this performance, the queens will sit down with Ru and Michelle Visage on their podcast. Gottmik is the first, and he talks about his transition and where his drag name comes from – it’s the first part of his last name and the first part of his old name. She also talks about how she realized that she is more than just a beautiful face throughout this competition, and Ru and Michelle comment that she has come so far and that her freedom is contagious.
Rosé is next and talks about how lucky she is to have parents who support both her and her drag. It also delves into his theatrical experience and how drag gave him a new sense of freedom from his performing art. Rosé also hopes that one day she can be on Broadway as her drag self and that her musical group, Stephanie’s Child, can appear on the radio.
After Rosé, Kandy talks to Michelle and Ru, and like Gottmik, they discuss where Kandy’s name comes from. Inspired by a movie, she wanted to be a muse and used the first letter of her birth name Kevin for Kandy. Along with that, they jokingly talk about her runway look last week, which neither of them fondly recall. On a more poignant note, Kandy reveals how she initially thought she had to be a badass bitch to succeed in the competition, but as the show has progressed, she has been more vulnerable with others and embraces the parts of herself that others do. they have mocked. from outside the show.
Finally, Symone takes the stage to discuss her time with the House of Avalon. The entire household, including herself, moved from Little Rock to Los Angeles, which was a difficult but life-changing move for the queen. He also talks about how throughout the season he has had to face his inner saboteur in order to truly shine, especially when everyone else sees how strong Symone is as an artist.
The catwalk: excellence in drag
After the performance, the queens hit the runway for some of their best drinks. Gottmik comes out in a black and white polka dot dress that Cruella de Ville I would envy. Her makeup complements the look, showing off her white clown face. Kandy follows her, and she goes against the grain. While most queens over the years have worn dresses for the top four, Kandy wears a colorful and elegant outfit with a corset and a red wig that Daphne blake I would love to use.
Rosé, who is originally from Scotland, is channeling her heritage in a tartan dress this week. She also wears a long red wig that completes the look. Finally, Symone comes out in another stunning outfit. The purple dress screams royalty, especially with its huge sleeves, which rival the most regal capes. She also wears another amazing wig, this time with platinum braids.
The reviews are nothing but positive this week. Starting with Gottmik, the judges love how her dress this week combined glamor with chic humor, commenting on how she has worn it with every look, delivering some of the best outfits in drag racing history. Also, it’s clear that she was excited to be here during the performance, giving it her all. She has impressed the judges once again, as her creativity always excites them.
As for Kandy, this look is one of her strongest, from the proportions, to the makeup, to the tailoring. His charisma also shines through during the performance. While she has had ups and downs throughout the show, Kandy has stayed true to herself and fought for her place in the competition. His humor has won over the judges, but so has his heart and drive.
Once again, Rosé is praised for her professionalism, and Ross Matthews comments that she is consistently the most prepared on set. She always hits the mark and is the complete package as she can sing, dance and act. In addition, his refined style and humor have favored him on most occasions.
Finally, the judges argue about Symone, and her outfit makes her look like a queen, and the judges even want someone to email Anna Wintour so they can get Symone on the cover of fashion. She has delivered some of the most iconic looks this season, but the clothes never wear it; she uses them. Like Kandy, her charisma is also reflected in the acting, and the judges are ready to buy whatever Symone is selling. While she has had some bumps, Symone has learned immensely while staying true to herself.
It’s close to this season, so Ru decides to lip sync the four queens to Whitney Houston’s “I Learned from the Best”; however, instead of competing on the same stage, each queen will perform the song alone. At the end of the lip sync, Ru made a decision and the four queens will move on to the finale, which will air in two weeks. Before Ru crowns America’s next drag superstar, all the queens will remotely tune in for a reunion next week.
