The queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10 have delivered some of the most iconic lip syncing moments in the show’s history: we haven’t recovered from last week’s double-save showdown between Eureka O’Hara and Kameron Michaels, while Monét X Change’s jump split fake-out in episode three still has us gagging. Tonight’s (May 24) episode delivered another nail-biter.
Proven lip sync assassins Kameron and Monét found themselves in the bottom two after underperforming in the season’s makeover challenge and were tasked with miming Lizzo’s “Good As Hell” — in front of the hip-hop diva!
Both queens turned it out, though RuPaul seemed confused by Monét’s decision to exit the stage for a second during the line, “Just walk your fine ass out the door.” In the end, Mama Ru sent the NYC fan favorite packing, granting Kameron another shot at the crown.
Fans — and queens from seasons past — took to Twitter to express their mixed opinions. Some were pleased with the result, while others felt that another double-save was in order. Some thought the bottom 2 were incorrect altogether. Either way, here are just a few of Billboard Pride’s favorite reactions to last night’s elimination on RuPaul’s Drag Race:
Sickoning lip sync two weeks in a row! YASS! Kameron knew every breath of that song bitch! WERK!

So u really tryna tell me on this entire season Monét was cheated out of 2-3 challenge wins, never actually got to win, turned out three lip syncs and easily gave us THE best lipsyncs this season? And THIS isn’t the lipsync that deserves a double shantay? #DragRace pic.twitter.com/4h5FHaUJKv

This is the most bittersweet episode of #DragRace in a while: Cracker finally won a challenge, but Monet went home. When I go to the grocery store tomorrow, I am going to cry if I see a sponge.

If @monetxchange does not wear a pussycat wig made of sponges to the finale she’s doing everything wrong.
