While we all continue to cope with RuPaul’s Drag Race Withdrawal Syndrome, let us pay homage to one of the show’s most soulful queens.
The only thing better than watching the drag queens turn it out every season on Drag Race is seeing how they take what they learn on the show and apply it to their club appearances on the road. Latrice Royale, a favorite from Season 4 of, is known for giving performances that are both energetic and soulful. And her lip syncs on Ru's main stage were legendary. But in the time since she left the show, Latrice has been touring nightclubs across the country and taking audiences to church! Having developed a style that suits both her persona and taste in music, Latrice has been consistently giving performances that are above and beyond what we saw from her on Drag Race. It's time for us to pay homage.
"Think It Over" by Jennifer Holiday
I love this performance because it shows off how Latrice uses every tool at her disposal when onstage. Costume changes, choreography, splits, hair-flips and jazz hands. If you're going to werk it, WERK EVERYTHING.
"Movin' Up" by Inaya Day
The above lipsync was great, but this one is BEYOND. This performance includes not one but two onstage costume changes. And, as if all the twirls and shoulder shimmies weren't enough, Latrice does the splits twice.
