Shanté, Stay, and Watch the Most Sickening 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Lip-Syncs Ever
No tea, no shade, no pink lemonade: Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle is good clean fun, but no one, and I mean no one, lip-syncs like the good queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Seriously, these gurls have to lip-sync for their lives. FOR THEIR LIVES! And sometimes they even have to perform in front of the musical artists that originated the songs.
That’s some serious pressure, so it’s not surprising that Drag Race contestants do sometimes fail to heed Ru’s advice, and do in fact “f— it up.” But when they werk it out, they prove that they really have charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent.
To commemorate this coming Monday’s Season 8 RuPaul’s Drag Race finale, let’s take a look at the most memorable Drag Race lip-syncs of all time. In the words of Adore Delano, party! And in the words of Shangela, halleloo! You. Betta. Watch. (WARNING: Some of the videos below contain profanity.)
13. India Ferrah vs. Mimi Imfurst, “Don’t Leave Me This Way” (Season 3)
This definitely was NOT one of the better Drag Race battles, but it deserves a mention because it will forever live in infamy for that scary moment when the loud, brash, and confrontational Mimi violently flipped a freaked-out, shrieking India over her shoulder. Not cool. “Drag is not a contact sport,” RuPaul scolded, before ordering Mimi to sashay away.
