Bring back my season 12 girls — but virtually of course.
In a new clip from tonight’s season finale episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the queens are back and more socially distanced than ever. Set to RuPaul’s own “Bring Back My Girls” track, this year the finale red carpet is being done from home.
In the footage, each of the season’s contestants show off some of their best drag in self-shot footage from home. Well, almost all of the contestants! Sherry Pie, who was disqualified from the season before she ever debuted on the show, was not featured. This is in line with the terms of her disqualification.
The finale is the second virtual episode of the season, following the virtual reunion that aired last week. For tonight, the queens have pulled out some of their best drag — not going to lie, I was extremely impressed by self-proclaimed “bedroom queen” Aiden Zhane, and was slightly tickled that Brita Filter seemed to be offering up a redo, drag version of her Madonna look. Well, it was mostly their best drag! Crystal Methyd, as always, did things her way and came as a piñata. Kind of a fun, camp take on a “reveal,” no?
According to a release, the episode will include a revolutionary lip sync between the final three, Methyd, Jaida Essence Hall, and Gigi Goode. It was revealed at the reunion that this would contain five songs.
There will also be celebrity appearances, the announcement of Miss Congeniality, and virtual "red carpet" interviews by Asia O'Hara on Twitter starting at 4 pm EST. That red carpet will include a Fan Fashion show.
At the end we expect for "America's Next Drag Superstar" to be crowned, virtually of course.
