Imitation is truly the best form of flattery. Hopefully you guys are tuning into RuPaul's Drag Race on LOGO. The hit reality show hosted by RuPaul is on the search for the next big drag superstar. Last night the 8 remaining contestants were given the "Pop Challenge" and were split off into two girl groups. Solo artist and former Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams was on hand to lend her expertise as a guest judge.

On the chopping block for elimination this week were contestants Tammie Brown and the designated bitch of the series Akashia. In order to save themselves from being sent home the queens were ordered "to lip-synch for their life".The chosen song this week was Michelle William's #1 Billboard dance hit "We Break The Dawn".

I think it's an unspoken rule that no female singer has arrived until drag queens everywhere are imitating their stage persona. Akashia did just that last night by saving herself from elimination and bringing Michelle Williams to tears.

I absolutely love Michelle Williams because she is such a wonderful ally to the LGBT community. Given her background in gospel music and the "don't ask don't tell policy" many artists in that genre adhere to(although we know the truth), it's nice to see her openly support her gay fans. And to recognize the talent in Akashia to the point of being moved to tears I thought was pretty damn cool.

I have to admit I am sincerely enjoying this joy!! LOGO could use more programming along this lines. It knows and understands its place and purpose and does a great job of imitating Project Runway and America's Next Top Model. A lot of fun!!! I would have liked to have seen the drag queens perform in their OWN style. So we get some idea of their identity before they got kicked off the show. I have a feeling Tammy doing her own thing rather than the diva singing dance club thing would've beaten anything Akashia(sp?) could've come up with. Seems she was put on teh show for being unique and different but was always forced to perform in a cliche' drag-queen fashion. It's too bad.

I also wish they would stop using the vaseline lenses on Ru when she is in drag. If she is looking that bad then let us see it, otherwise stop with the blurry images!! Makes me think I dropped my contacts!!
