RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 Episode 7 Review – Madonna: The Unauthorized Rusical

Last week’s Rusical was a controversial episode for the diehard fans of the show when fan favorite and season’s frontrunner Gigi Goode was awarded her third maxi challenge win for her “unapologetic” portrayal in the regular musical challenge of the show dedicated for the queen of pop  – Madonna.

Some fans deemed Jan to have been robbed of her first win after delivering a very well-executed “Early Madonna” performance and sashaying the runway with her very accurate Michelle Visage-inspired looks!

Personally, I thought her performance was flawless. Her vocals was amazing, the dance moves was there and her Michelle Visage outfit was on point! What I think made her overall performance “just safe” is the lack of wow factor in it. Maybe because it was expected since we’re seeing the show from behind the scenes up to the actual performance while the judges just get to see the finished product.

Gigi on the other hand has that oomp in her performance. She was Madonna in that performance. The looks, the move and the attitude! It was very exciting! Her outfit, wearing a two-piece bikini  inspired by one of Michelle Visage’s earlier looks with  her band The S.O.U.L. S.Y.S.T.E.M.  I actually loved it! Fans were saying that if Gigi wasn’t “beautiful, skinny and white,” she’s be read to filth for parading in that very basic outfit with no reference to what people came to expect from Michelle Visage.

But that’s the thing! It was actually a near-perfect reference to an earlier Michelle Visage look! She researched and did her assignment and came up with a very unpredictable look! I thought it was genius to be quite honest. And Michelle was a judge herself so she knows that looks from the moment Gigi went appeared in that runway.

Okay, enough of Gigi and Jan. Can we also talk about Miss Jaida Essence Hall? I mean, that performance is just WOW. The sex appeal, her perfect mug and the lyrics! Ugh! I would’ve thought that she’s the one whose fans should cry robbed for her underrated performance! She embodied Erotica on that motherfucking stage! And that runway look is fire! A total Michelle Visage vibe!

Crystal Methyd performance was equally entertaining. Crystal is very likable but it feels that she’s still not doing the maximum effort to actually get noticed. I do hope that she’d come out 100% of her shell soon since we’re halfway through the season. Her ray of light was very charming and her outfit, the redhead Michelle Visage was really refreshing!

Low for me this week are Heidi, Widow and Brita. Whilst I love their confessionals, I seem to forget what they did during their performances and the runway. The Cone Bra Madonna was totally wasted no Brita. I though she’d do well as Evita who went to the queen who should not be named. Heidi on the other hand was still loveable but I didn’t see Madonna nor Michelle in both of her performances on the Rusical and the runway. And for Widow – I’m not sure. It’s too forgettable for me but it looks like she really enjoyed it!

Bottom Two: Brita and Heidi N Closet.

I really thought it was Brita’s time to go. Although the exposure was nice, I feel that it’s going to be too much for her reputation if she stays one more week. Her Madonna was clearly the weakest, but unpopular opinion – I though she’d won that lip-sync again Heidi. Too bad, she’s no storyline to offer anymore.

Do you think Heidi will have a big comeback the next episode or will Miss Goode continue to annihilate the competition?

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 Episode 6 Review – Snatch Game

MAXI CHALLENGE: Snatch Game

TOP: Wow! I didn’t think Miss Gigi could pull it off!!! She was so funny and on-point!!! You could tell that she really rehearsed this seriously!!!

Love me some Jackie!!! Spot on impersonation of Lisa down to her cardigan!

SAFE: Heidi’s hilarious but it felt like I’m just watching Miss Heidi herself.

I wished Widow brought a longer wig for that. It looks like a really short mane. I wished she did the legendary Miss Aretha Franklin instead.

Jan faded a bit for me. I only remembered the weed answer but she wasn’t that bad at all, just not memorable.

I thought Jaida was funny but not fully committed.

BOTTOM: Aiden and Brita were cringy af.

[Redacted] is Katherine Hepburn with all the Parkinsons joke is very uncomfortable. Upon googling, I’ve learned that she’s actually got Essential Tremors (KH).

RUNWAY

As for the runway looks – I thought Jaida, Jackie and Jan had the best looks!

TOP Jaida is giving me Jadis from Narnia vibes! I loved the top and the hair and her make up! Her flawless mug! Ugh!!!!

I loved A blonde Jackie! It suits her!!! ‘Loved the silhouette of her gown!

Jan’s concept was wow!!! Loved the white walker and the wig reveal!!!

SAFE Gigi’s outfit was really cute! It’s cut to perfection and her make up – flawless! I’m putting her as safe because this didn’t wow me the way the the three J’s did. I want a big ballgown or something dramatic from her next time!

Crystal’s outfit is chic indeed, as Ru mentioned! Love her make up and her pulled back wig! Same reason with Gigi’s outfit – it feels very ‘safe’

REDACTED’s outfit was actually beautiful. Not spectacularly beautiful but good enough to sail through to the next round.

BOTTOM: Widow – I loved the concept and I immediately got the reference the moment she went out to that runway but I thought the execution was messy. It’s Frozen Eleganza after all.

Like what most of you sis are complaining about Gigi’s outfits having the same silhouette, it’s also the case with Brita from New York rolls eyes. I didn’t like the color. I thought if she made it with white or silver, it would’ve been magic.

Aiden – I don’t know what to say. I love her uniqueness but this was just a mess for me.

I’m a Gigi stan and I am extremely happy that she won the maxi challenge because she really killed it but I really thought at first that Jackie will get her first win because her Snatch was solid and her outfit – ugh, get out of here! She looks marvelous! But yeah, I get why Gigi won the whole thing considering her perfect snatch game and flawless execution on the runway!!! Gosh, this bitch is annihilating the competition and I cannot even pinpoint her rival for the crown!

Aiden vs. Brita’s lip-sync. I cannot. It was horrible. The only thing good about it was the snow falling. I thought it should’ve been a double sashay.

I feel like this season has only given us just one great lipsync so far and that is the first episode and it was not even a LSFYL episode!

I wonder if Brita will go home next week or will she get a Rudemptopn arc?
