On this week’s (June 14) episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the final four queens write, record, and perform their own solo verses to a remix of the title track of RuPaul’s latest album American, and join RuPaul and Michelle Visage on their What’s The Tee? podcast.
In an exclusive clip shared with Billboard, Eureka works on recording her verse with help from Drag Race regular Todrick Hall, who will be choreographing the girls’ performance.
Earlier in the season, Eureka faced roadblocks with singing on the show, opening up to Todrick during the “Cher: The Unauthorized Rusical” challenge about the PTSD she faces stemming from a childhood experience.
This time around, she seems to have much more confidence. Though initially struggling with staying on the beat of the track, Eureka delivers her verse with no shortage of theatrical character after some coaching by Todrick.
“I have normally been terrified of singing in front of people,” Eureka says in the clip. “But, bitch, I feel great today.”
After rapping her last line of her verse, “C’mon, y’all, let’s live free/I’m an elephant queen — what’re you gonna be?” Todrick suggests the self-titled “big-girl-sexy” queen makes her own elephant noise to sign off the verse. Eureka and the producers go back and forth with helpless attempts to utter a convincing sound.
Watch the clip below, and tune into RuPaul’s Drag Race tonight at 8:00 PM on VH1 to see if the elephant noise makes the final cut and who will make it to the season finale, airing June 28.
