BenDeLaCreme vs. Aja
This All Stars 3 Lip Sync For Your Legacy is one for the history books. BenDeLaCreme and Aja performed “Anaconda”, by Nicki Minaj.
BenDeLaCreme worked her campy persona to her advantage and ended up winning the lip sync over Aja and her more sexuality-focused performance. BenDeLaCreme continued to be a frontrunner in All Stars 3 until she eventually quit the competition.
Raven vs. Jujubee
All Stars 1 isn’t the best season of Drag Race, but this moment between Raven and Jujubee is a standout. The two queens, who have been competing together, must face off for a chance to join two others in a finale. The subsequent performance of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” is more tearful than anything else, but it shows off the love between Raven and Jujubee.
Even Robyn herself has seen and loves this lip sync! You can learn more about drag queen Raven today.
Brooke Lynn Hytes vs. Yvie Oddly
Not all lip syncs end with a winner. In the lip sync battle between Brooke Lynn Hytes and Yvie Oodly, both performers were so good that they earned a Sashay Away, and both were allowed to continue.
They performed Demi Lovato’s “Sorry Not Sorry”, and between Brooke Lynn Hytes’ ballerina moves and Yvie Oddly’s superhuman flexibility, the judges just couldn’t decide between them.
But, this notable performance isn’t the only time these two queens have faced off. they went on to lip sync for the overall winner of the Drag Race crown that season.
Peppermint vs. Trinity Taylor
Everyone loves a Britney Spears lip sync, and this “Stronger” performance stands out for a reason. Both Trinity Taylor and Peppermint put their all into their performance, and killed their dance moves.
However, Peppermint held out her outfit reveal for just the right moment, adding to the song’s dramatic tension. This helped propel her to the win, although she would then lose the overall competition.
Chi Chi DeVayne vs. Thorgy Thor
Sometimes, a performance is more about the emotion than anything else. When Chi Chi DeVayne performed “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” from the musical Dreamgirls, the sheer emotion she portrayed blew Thorgy Thor out of the water. She built it up slowly, making her performance even more powerful.
