'RuPaul's Drag Race:' Gay Twitter Reacts to Last Night's Shocking 'Lip Sync For Your Life'
There is nothing better about RuPaul’s Drag Race than witnessing a satisfying, gag-worthy "Lip Sync For Your Life." This season has already had a number of wonderful lip sync moments (we are still not over Monét X Change’s fake jump split in episode three), and last night’s (May 17) episode of Drag Race gave us yet another one.
After two lackluster performances in this week’s “Breastworld” acting challenge, the season’s two Tennessee queens, Eureka O’Hara and Kameron Michaels found themselves on the bottom two. Dressed in full-on old lady drag, the pair began their lip sync to Patti LaBelle’s hit dance single “New Attitude.”
Both queens turned out every trick they had in their book. Kameron delivered a high energy performance, complete with ridiculous hair-whips, hilarious comedic timing and a number of stunts. Eureka’s performance started out more subdued, but she quickly erupted into high kicks and splits (one that was even simultaneous with Kameron’s) to show the judges that she was worth saving. At the end of it all, RuPaul found that she had no other choice and decided that based on their fabulous lip-syncing skills, both of the queens would remain in the competition.
Naturally, as soon as the double “Shantay, you stay,” was announced, fans took to Twitter to express their pure shock. Some were pleased with the result, declaring this one of the best Drag Race lip syncs of all time. Others felt that the double win was unearned. Either way, here are just a few of Billboard Pride’s favorite reactions to last night’s Lip Sync for Your Life on RuPaul’s Drag Race:

Oh...no ones going home you say? Eureka is staying even though Kameron slayed her because that’s what a lip sync should ‘look like’ you say? Yet Dusty went home when you said the same for her lip sync against Monét... #DragRace pic.twitter.com/ugimwJ0LpO— morticia munster-- (@taylorrandsuchh) May 18, 2018
