RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars: Lip Sync LaLaPaRuza Smackdown (S07 E12)

It’s the moment we’ve all been dreading: RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 7 has come to an end. The most wholesome and heartwarming season is over. How unfair! But you know what they say, don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

Anyway, the episode kicked off with the queens reflecting on the last episode. In case you forgot, Jinkx Monsoon, Monet X. Change, Trinity “The Tuck” Taylor, and Shea Couleé would be competing for the queen of all queens title, while Jaida Essence Hall, Raja, Yvie Oddly, and The Vivienne are facing off in the She Already Done Had Herses contest, whatever that means.

When the queens were reflecting on the episode, it was ruvealed that Trinity and Monet had an alliance, which was surprising to no one. Thankfully, Jaida was a good sport about not being chosen for the top four. I loved Jaida during Season 12, but I am completely obsessed with her now. Anyone else?

Before the lip syncs started, the queens gathered at the big orange tables one last time. RuPaul entered to remind everyone the competition is ending. Girl, we know, and we’re sad about it, jeez. They did give us one last mini challenge though, a tribute to Soul Train, which is always fun, especially with these queens.

It was time for the lip syncs. Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, and Ross Matthews joined RuPaul on the panel. Don’t worry, there was also a runway challenge. The queens had to wear their grand finale best. Everyone looked perfect, of course, but Jaida, Raja, and Yvie were my favorites. 

The looks were great, but then it got emotional. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house when Ru and the judges went around and gave everybody a title from the season. Everyone on the stage was crying and listen, when Shea cries, I cry. That’s just how it goes.

The moment was ruined by RuPaul’s lip syncing with some prancing gay clowns. It was a bizarre bit, but thankfully, it ended quickly.

First up was the She Done Already Had Herses smackdown. First up was The Viv against Yvie. They faced off to Push It by Salt N Pepa. Yvie won it and rightfully so, she nailed it! Jaida and Raja were next and they performed Let’s Hear It For The Boys by Deniece Williams. These two were clearly having fun and so were the judges. Moving on to the final round against Yvie was Raja!

Before Yvie and Raja faced off, the contestants of the Queen of All Queens smackdown took the stage. First up, Jinkx v. Shea to Judas by Lady Gaga. The lip sync was so good Trinity was screaming from the side of the stage. How Ru picked between the two is beyond me, but Jinkx was headed to the next round. Then came Monet and Trinity, who faced off to So What by Pink. They were doing all of the stunts, which was fun. Monet advanced!

It was time for Raja and Yvie to hit the stage for the final round. They competed to Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves by Eurythmics & Aretha Franklin. Yvie lost her wig but don’t worry, she had another one under her WIG CAP! It was a great performance, but in the end, Raja was the winner! 

Next was the fierce competition between Monet and Jinkx. They faced off to Swish Swish by Katy Perry. The performance was SO good. I wasn’t envious of the judges’ decision. However, the title went to Jinkx!

Wow, what a season! I’m ready for another all winners run already!
