‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Season 11 Finale: And the Winner Is…
The Thursday, May 30 episode of the Emmy-winning series kicked off with Silky Nutmeg Ganache choosing Brooke Lynn as her a rival for a lip sync performance to ‘Bootylicious’.
AceShowbiz -“RuPaul’s Drag Race” aired its season 11 finale on Thursday, May 30 with one of the Top 4 being crowned as the winner at the end of the winner. The episode kicked off with Silky Nutmeg Ganache, who chose Brooke Lynn as her a lip sync rival.
Following their battle, which saw them lip syncing to Destiny’s Child‘s “Bootylicious”, Silky was eliminated. Next up was A’Keria C. Davenport who went against Yvie Oddly in a battle of lip sync to “SOS” by Rihanna. As A’Keria was sent home, it was leaving Yvie and Brooke to have the final lip sync battle.
The Top 2 were giving their best in lip syncing to Lady GaGa‘s “Edge of Glory”. It was hard to predict who would come as the winner since both Yvie and Brook were equally incredible. However, there was always one winner, and it was Yvie! Congratulations!
In the episode, the show also presented the award for Miss Congeniality. Monet and RuPaul then announced that the winner for the award was Nina West. Fans might not be surprised with the revelation given how beloved she was by her fellow queens.
Prior to the finale, Yvie told Entertainment Weekly, “I want to be that one piece you see is missing, that one representation for the ‘other.’ There needs to be representation for that countercultural viewpoint. [We’re] there to stir the pot, whether visually or with [our] words!”
“People expect a finished product and expect you to look like you spent thousands of dollars or dripping in diamonds. My drag has shaken a lot of the viewers up: It’s not polished and it won’t ever be polished, but that doesn’t mean it’s not finished or it’s not good!” she added.
