Like the good Angela Bassett earlier than her, Marcia Marcia Marcia did the factor on Friday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Thoughts you, “the factor” was not profitable this week’s maxi problem, as Marcia didn’t precisely wow the judges along with her one-woman comedy present. Nor was it the runway class, because the judges learn her for mainly sporting a variation of Loosey LaDuca’s pageant runner-up look from the Crystal Ball.
On this case, I’m singing Marcia’s praises for managing to carry her personal in a lip sync towards licensed murderer Anetra. Let’s be actual — when Ru hit play on Doja Cat’s “Boss Bitch,” all of us anticipated Anetra to wipe the ground with Marcia. The pairing appeared borderline merciless. Then once more, it could be unfair for the present to pit virtually anybody towards Anetra, as few of the remaining contestants would stand an opportunity battling the queen of the duck stroll.
So think about my shock when Marcia not solely stood an opportunity but in addition labored with Anetra to ship arguably the perfect lip sync of the season, topping Anetra’s Fifth Concord face-off with Sasha Colby. (Yeah, I stated it.) I imply, we’ve seen gymnastics on the runway earlier than, however hardly ever have we seen this sort of synchronicity. The queens had been giving us elevated leap frog!

I haven’t had essentially the most optimistic issues to say about Marcia, particularly final week. However it doesn’t matter what occurs to her from this second ahead, I’m going to recollect her for this lip sync. Make no mistake, nothing will ever excuse her blasphemous Beyoncé look, however this lip sync proved that Marcia will not be one to be trifled with — it doesn’t matter what she’s sporting.
I may need made this one a double shantay, if solely to present the right ending to the season’s long-awaited first 90-minute episode, however Ru had different plans, sending Marcia packing.
Did that lip sync change the way in which you take a look at Marcia? Or have you ever been a fan all alongside? Drop a remark together with your ideas on this week’s Drag Race under.
