Known From10 Female Power Songs Known From Legendary Drag Race Lip Syncs


Drag Race fans beware, season 3 of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars is coming to you! Your favourite queens from previous Drag Race seasons will be competing against each other on screen from January 25th onwards. Time to review - what were the most memorable Drag Race lip syncs? Whether it was Drag Race or All Stars, a lip sync for your legacy, life, or simply a challenge: gentlemen, start your engines... and may the best woman win!

10. Taylor Dane - Tell It To My Heart

Alyssa Edwards vs Detox, All Stars Season 2
During season two of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, the top two queens of the week got to lip sync for their legacy. Here, Alyssa Edwards competes against an all-silver Detox to win a prize of $10,000 dollars, and the power to send one of the bottom queens home. 80s hit 'Tell It To My Heart' does very well for this lip sync!

9. Natalie Cole - This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)

DiDa Ritz vs The Princess, Drag Race Season 4
Every once in a while, queens are given the unique opportunity to lip sync in front of one of their idols. DiDa Ritz really took her chance and gave it all while lip syncing for her life, before the one and only Natalie Cole herself!

8. Jennifer Holliday - And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going

Chi Chi DeVayne vs Thorgy Thor, Drag Race Season 8
It is the ultimate battle song for a lipsync for life. These black-and-white ladies sure as hell left an amazing impression on stage.. and a lot of beads, too. 

7. Willow Smith - Whip My Hair

Alyssa Edwards vs Roxxy Andrews, Drag Race Season 5
Lip sync for your life? More like whip sync! These ladies gave everything they got when they found themselves in the bottom two in season 5. As Jinkx Monsoon declared, it is a "a photo finish" for these two...

6. Rihanna - Shut Up & Drive

Tatiana vs Alyssa Edwards, All Stars Season 2
Once more we find Alyssa lip syncing on stage, though fortunately for her, she's doing it for her legacy this time. Miss Edwards might be a professional dancer, but Tatiana has made up her made to show the audience what she's got - and she sure knows how to move like a true queen!

5. Bonnie Tyler - Holding Out For A Hero

Aja vs Kimora Blac, Drag Race Season 9
Also known for its appearance in Shrek, 'Holding Out For A Hero' is another brilliant power song perfectly fit for the Drag Race stage. And we all know a lip sync isn't truly complete without a jump split, right?

4. Ariana Grande - Greedy

Valentina vs Nina Bonina Brown, Drag Race Season 9
We are looking at what was ultimately one of the most shocking moments of all RuPaul's Drag Race seasons. Who could've known Nina Bonina Brown would have it this easy lip syncing against fan favourite Valentina?

3. Paula Abdul - Straight Up

Raja vs Carmen Carrera, Drag Race Season 3
"Raja is getting naked? Well this is going to be hot, because Carmen is all about nudity!" Watch out for one of the steamiest lip syncs you will ever see. 

2. RuPaul ft. All Stars 2 cast - Read U Wrote U

All Stars 2 Last Four 
Time for a RuPaul original! The last four candidates of All Stars 2 put their hands together for a contribution to RuPaul's 'Read U Wrote U'. The choreography, especially on Katya's extremely flexible part, is phenomenal. Oh, and for fans who are not keen on Roxxy's part, an audio without it can be found online too.

1. Whitney Houston - So Emotional

Sasha Velour vs Shea Couleé, Drag Race Season 9
The grande finale of season 9 saw one of the most legendary and memorable performances in the herstory of Drag Race. Queens Sasha and Shea were given the honour of competing for the top prize on one of RuPaul's all-time favourite tracks: Whitney Houston's 'So Emotional'. And this final performance in the list has got us feeling so incredibly emotional.
