Shantay, you stay!
Aquaria and Jorgeous gagged fans of RuPaul's Drag Race on their respective seasons, but they're now turning out their best looks yet in Las Vegas.
RuPaul's Drag Race Live! has wowed audiences ever since it premiered just before the pandemic in 2020. In the live show, fans of Drag Race get to see queens walk the runway, perform show-stopping numbers, and, of course, lip sync for their lives.
"Honestly, this experience has been phenomenal... a dream come true. My inner kid is screaming at the fact that I'm a Vegas headliner. I'm living the fantasy right now," Jorgeous tells Out.
As a queen who delivered consistent runways on her season of Drag Race, Aquaria is also bringing high fashion to the Sin City stage.
"For me, a lot of it is just doing what I want right now. [I'm wearing] some of the stuff that I brainstormed in 2019-ish. I'm here. I'm taking over the Las Vegas Strip! I be eating the girls up... or at least the audience be eating me up," Aquaria says.
Beyond the stunning looks, audiences will be rooting for their favorite queens in the mesmerizing lip sync numbers. Since Jorgeous dominated many of her lip syncs on season 14, fans can be assured that the queen puts on a memorable performance.
"I'm not just punching ghosts! The person that you saw on Drag Race is a completely different person now. I'm Jorgeous 2.0 now. Everything's next level. All of the looks are next level. I was getting ready to think I was going back on All Stars, [so] I took it as that. Let me serve these looks. Let me give a full on show," Jorgeous says.
Jorgeous and Aquaria join a current cast of queens including Asia O'Hara, Jaida Essence Hall, and Derrick Barry. Other Vegas-based queens that pop in also include Coco Montrese, Kahanna Montrese, Alexis Mateo, and Yara Sofia.
"Working with the girls and working with Aquaria and Jaida... they taught me so much. I love it," Jorgeous says.
Previous queen in the show include Eureka O'Hara, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, Yvie Oddly, Latrice Royale, Kennedy Davenport, Roxxxy Andrews, Jasmine Kennedie, Plastique Tiara, Naomi Smalls, Kameron Michaels, and many more. With so many past contestants to choose from, both Aquaria and Jorgeous have high hopes as to who will join the show in the future.
"I know she's been in the cast plenty of times before, but Kennedy Davenport. I think she's the most exceptional entertainer ever. Maybe sometime in the future, we'll be lucky enough to have Kennedy come back," Aquaria says.
"Honestly, Sasha Colby! That would be so sickening. That would be everything! I'm ready for it," Jorgeous concludes.
