This fever dream of an acting challenge is two parts Mean Girls, one part Black Christmas and, as we see this week, not all parts are equal. Jinkx makes the very most of it, Jaida plays the low notes, Monet lets down her hair and Raja shmacts her way to a Top 2 spot with […]

All Stars is going old school Drag Race this week with a second design challenge! This time the inspiration is an imaginary Pinterest board featuring eight of RuPaul’s looks over the years, to varying degrees of memorability. Trinity and Jaida once again stitch a clear path to the Top 2, Monet covers all her bases, […]

We queened out on Art by Cheyne in our recent “The Art of Drag” episode, and this week we get to queen out WITH Cheyne! We discuss what inspired his comic book cover art series featuring the queens of Drag Race, his inspirations, favorite queens and advice for other artists. We also talk about his […]

This week’s episode is a strange early 2000’s MTV throwback to girl groups, but featuring boy band vocals and followed by a Dolly Parton runway. In teams of two, the queens take very different approaches to this, with Jinkx leading The Other Girls in a pseudo-acting challenge to a clear victory over the M.S.T.R. sisters. […]

The valedictorians of Drag Race take the stage in their magna cum laudest gowns to impart their wisdom to an undefined class of students of Drag U, a show we thought was canceled after three seasons. To the surprise of just about no one, Jinkx not only excels but could come back to Drag U […]

We’re kicking off Pride month with a bonus deep dive into the new gay rom-com with a little dram, “Fire Island”! We have as much to say about the movie as we do about what the movie is saying about class, status and social equity in this relatively tiny corner of an island. Plus: an […]

Once upon a time–this week, actually–the queens headed to court for an even more fantastical version of AS4’s “Jersey Justice.” (Judge Michelle Visage is still in leopard print.) We disagree WILDLY on this one, Mary’s, from Viv’s Little Red Lying Hood to Shea’s Halle Beary, and especially about Witch Theresa the Tuck and that porch […]

This week’s Wheel of Fortune inspired ball has the queens spinning to develop alliances and whip up a global rainbow of destination inspired looks. Jaida wins the challenge, the lip sync and our hearts, Raja misses the Top 2 by a hair, Vanna White is a potentially puzzling guest, and the Before and After theme […]

We’re releasing Nuance, the Alright Mary aftershow, for free this week to kick off All Stars 7! We discuss the continued impact of Gia Gunn’s hapless and hopelessly quotable presence on Twitter, the refreshing release of the trailer for “Bros,” a couple unpopular opinions that didn’t totally make it to the main episodes, and finally, […]

All Stars 7 wastes no time, oh at all, in dropping a second episode this week with a much anticipated and already legendary round of Snatch Game! Well, two rounds, actually, with all of the queens taking a page from the likes of Bob the Drag Queen and Nina West and serving two celebrity impressions. […]

Winning is the new winning as eight previous crown-holders compete in an elimination-free season with a $200,000 cherry on top! This week is your standard lyrics and choreography challenge, but the charisma and enthusiasm in the workroom, the whip smart reads during the mini challenge and the royalty on the runway are the reason to […]

Featured this week: Chad Sell Liam Draws Drag Art by Cheyne […]

We’re singing a love song to ballads this week, Mary! And in particular, ballad lip syncs. We’re veering off of the usual Drag Race path to look at three amazing examples of what a ballad can be in a queen’s hands (or lips, as the case may be): the “Llorando” performance from “Mulholland Drive,” Sasha […]

Queens have been lip syncing and live singing in musical challenges nearly every season of Drag Race, but this week we’re doing a Mary-sized bracket to determine the very Best Actress in a Rusical! 64 queens are up for consideration, but only one can walk away with absolutely nothing but our continued love and respect. […]

It’s been a long journey since June went home in January, but Season 14 ends in Las Vegas on the stage of Drag Race Live. The final 5 are given Leland produced songs and some backup dancers to perform with for about a minute and change, which just means more time spent watching RuPaul avoid […]

The queens catch up before we wrap up the season, and we are reminded of the early outs we haven’t seen in months. Jasmine Kennedie takes a show-stealing role as the central point of interest for at least half of the reunion, Kornbread looks in a look, Daya has a Housewives reunion strategy, Angie has […]

While a music video for the semifinal challenge of the season is a little predictable, this episode certainly was not. Angie’s two white feet continue to trip her up in the choreography and Bosco, no longer in a corset and panties, instead serves suburban space mom. Camden tiptoes her way to the top, Daya finds […]

There is life before and after this week’s talent show, easily one of the best episodes in Drag Race history. (Just ask IMDb!) After an 11 queen reading challenge and a welcomed return of the Season 1 queens as a much needed studio audience, we’re treated to a night of singing, dancing, stripping, painting, birthing, […]

RuPaul and Michelle have had their turns in the hot seat, but this season it’s Roast Mathews! The Top 7 take turns taking down Ross with, as per usual, varying degrees of success. Despite Dulce Sloan’s Masterclass, DeJa still puts her Bigfoot in her mouth, Daya is off beat, and Jorgeous just doesn’t have any […]
