RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13 Episode 16 Review: Grand Finale

We have our win! After nearly four months, America’s Next Drag Superstar was crowned on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13 Episode 16.

The clash was hard-fought between Gottmik, Symone, Rose, and Kandy Muse in the Lip-Sync For The Crown.

In a crowning nighttime filled with Britney Spears music, the queens cultivated the stage to deliver the results we’ve all was awaiting. Though, the outcome was all too predictable.

Symone triumph RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13 was a great decision because Symone predominated many of the challenges, burned up the runway with iconic sounds, and left her stigmatize in the contender. It’s simply a exceedingly expected decision based on the season’s editing.

Right from the iconic directions on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13 Episode 2, Symone had video games in the bag.

Sure, there is indeed minutes where she stumbled and territory in the bottom two, but there was no way Symone was going home. She became a frontrunner and favorite that wasn’t going to be easily unseated, and her countless challenge prevails further shut the placement in the finals.

RuPaul’s Drag Race needs to improve its editing to allow a touch of surprise and misgiving. Two queens is just like frontrunners by the time we reached the finale( Symone and Gottmik ), and formerly one of them got eliminated, it was a guarantee the other would win.

It didn’t region the rival on a high note or generate Symone the full blow her prevail rightfully deserved.

The finale made a few new mutates this year to accommodate the pandemic regulations and social distancing.

Firstly, there was no audience at the theater; there was a separate Drag Race Drive-in of pre-recorded members watching from a different location. And nothing of the other eliminated princess was just here to do their runway accompanies. They “re coming back” for the Miss Congeniality segment only.

I liked the updates because they stiffened the grand finale and RuPaul hopped right into the action.

Plus, more time was spent on the important segments and the enjoyable gestures thrown in.

Like, the performance of RuPaul’s song with the backup dancers. We don’t get RuPaul singing and dancing often; it’s a moment we can all bask in and admire! And the heartwarming tribute to Chi Chi DeVayne star many of the past entrants speaking beautiful words.

“Grand Finale” featured many huge watches from the Top 4, as well as from the eliminated and returning queens.

The best( and favorite) regards of the night included Gottmik’s black and white Hellraiser look, Rose’s My Fair Lady gown, Kandy Muse’s red skin mini dress, Gottmik’s evil mistres, Rose’s emerald Scottish queen, and Symone’s gilded Medusa.

I affection a horror cite, so Gottmik’s stunning Hellraiser look blew me away the second she walked onto the main stage. The same exits for her Evil Queen look; the design alone could make a perfect Disney character in a fairytale.

Both Rose and Symone looked stunning in their tailor-make costumes; the Medusa and Scottish queens were ritzy royalty that could be in a publication. And Kandy Muse’s red inspection was unadulterated unabashedly Kandy that tied her tale together.

When it came time for the Lip-Sync For The Crown achievements, I choose the editors performed it less obvious who won.

The times were revised in such a way that they be concentrated on the acquiring princes for a majority of the members of the numeral. You could tell who won the lip-sync within the first 10 -1 5 seconds of the song. The editors hammered it in that a monarch was going to win.

For sample, Kandy Muse vs. Rose’s lip-sync virtually removed Rose from the performance. Beyond a few moments here and there, Kandy got the lion’s share of the segment.

Symone vs. Gottmik’s lip-sync was a little better, but the same issue persisted. Symone got longer increased pieces, and by the end of the song, all the clips focused on Symone. At least the Symone vs. Kandy Muse segment felt balanced with equal shares.

Speaking of the lip-syncs, Kandy Muse predominated the “Work Bitch” by Britney Spears lip-sync against Rose.

Why didn’t Rose approach harder on stagecoach? She returned a good multitude that involved walking around and providing gazes; it was nice but average.

RuPaul: Now, I love your Scottish brogue. I can say exclusively one thing with a Scottish accent, it’s “Lawrence Chaney! ” Can you school me how to say something else with a Scottish brogue? Rose: Yeah, here’s one … “Ellie Diamond! ”[ RuPaul chortles hard]

Kandy Muse, on the other hand, dished flame, demeanour, and intense gazes. Kandy knew she had to give it her all to get the finale spot, and part of that involved knocks and connecting with the song.

Rose didn’t competitor the same power as Kandy Muse, who had proven to be a tough lip-sync competitor.

The “Gimme More” lip-sync of Symone vs. Gottmik was the most exciting lip-sync of the night.

Both queens cuddled the sex colour of the song to serve sensual numerals. Outfit uncovers, divides, seductive examines, smooth moves … the queens drew it all to fight for that last spot.

Granted, the editing imparted it away who would earn the lip-sync, but the moments delivered by both kings were agitating and entertaining. “Gimme More” was the perfect song to give to two powerful and confident queens like Symone and Gottmik.

It’s a disgrace we didn’t get them in the Final 2 combating it out like this.

Symone vs. Kandy Muse in the Final 2 had an self-evident outcome.

Based on the stats penetrating “Grand Finale, ” Kandy wasn’t going to win. She had the worst track record from the competition, her gapes didn’t compare to Symone, and “shes had” been technically eliminated once before on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13 Episode 8. The writing was on the wall early into the finale.

And recollect, it ain’t over until you lip-synced from your living room! Just ask me.

The act vigour of “Till The World Ends” by Britney Spears had that belief. Both mistress acted face and some forceful moves, but it was an average lip-sync overall.

Even streamers exploding from Symone’s wig couldn’t make this an iconic finale lip-sync.

The final multitude was an average lip-sync to cover off an otherwise delightful and average season. Thankfully, we had Lala Ri’s surprising Miss Congeniality win that gave us all the shock and apprehension we needed for a finale.( Did anyone was hoped that ?!)
