We're down to the final six queens on RuPaul's Drag Race, and this week they were tasked with performing choreographed dance routines in teams of two. We all know how much these girls loooove working together on shit.
The routines were actually mashups of popular dances, and the first team to rehearse was Kennedy and Pearl. They got the Charleston Twerk and they immediately hit a snag because Pearl can't dance AT ALL. We're talking zero rhythm, and you can forget about twerking. Pathetic.
Next was Violet and Katya who were Vogueing the Tango. Violet revealed that she's actually an aerial performer, so naturally she picked up the choreography in a hot second. Katya, not so much.
"With choreography, I can get it...if I have about 3 to 4 months," Katya says.
Even though they were both in different places with the choreography, Katya and Violet really had an emotional connection this week.
"Violet is way more likeable than I thought she was," Katya admits. "I admire her confidence. I’m 10 years older than the fucking bitch and I haven’t got that down yet!"
Last to rehearse was Ginger and Trixie who got stuck with the Country Robot. On a scale of 1-10, Trixie was about a 5. but poor Ginger was more like a 3. At first Trixie was terrified of being upstaged by ginger again this week, but after she saw Ginger attempt to dance she realized that that really wasn't going to be an issue.
“I just afraid I’m goin to look like Honey Boo Boo meets Rosie O’Donnell,” Ginger joked.
For the final runway show and dance performance, the girls had to dress as half dude/half queen. All three teams really rehearsed the hell out of their routines and did an amazing job. Even Pearl and Ginger pulled it together. But in the end, it was Katya and Violet who really impressed the judges and they won the challenge.
When it came to choosing the bottom two, the judges had to get really nit-picky because no one outright sucked. So when it came down to the small details, Trixie and Ginger had to lip sync for their lives.
Ginger hilariously pranced her padded, red-headed ass off and sent Trixie home for the second time. Totally the right decision on Ru's part. The level of talent just got knocked up a peg and Trixie was just out of her league.
