I looked it up: http://rupaulsdragrace.wikia.com/wi...nc_Performances

The answer is no, but it's the first one not sung in falsetto that has male vocals in its entirety.
The other ones (aside from RuPaul's) were:
Bob vs. Derrick performing "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" by Sylvester
Jaymes vs. Kimora performing "Love Shack" by the B-52s
and tonight's!

I can't believe the other girls let Alexis down like that.

Kidding aside, Peppermint loving KILLED it on that lipsync, and I loved Sasha's Trinity puppet. I couldn't stop laughing at the hot glue line.

Now for some hating on Alexis, as it's the last time I'll get to do it this season:

"Sasha's rainbow outfit is so basic…*comes out in a rainbow stripped pantsuit*" forever.

The only thing better than the second wig reveal was watching the life drain from Alexis' performance as Peppermint went into overdrive. By the end, she was just vaguely gesturing and trying not to give in to the urge to storm off.

In the mini challenge, the feather joke was funny, but it went nowhere, and the whole bit just became "I don't understand half of what Sasha says, so I'm just gonna try to make fun of it as best I can" (or as I call it, "Republican comeback mode").

On a positive note, however, at least her Native American costume wasn't as racist as I thought it would be.

Alexis got in one last "why didn't they tell me my look was basic in the workroom?" before she was put out of her misery. I want a Trinity/Sasha/Shea F3 but I don't see how Pep can lose a lip sync. She's insane.

The final lip sync will be between all 4 of the remaining girls and basically doesn't matter if the last regular seasons are any indication.

I laughed pretty hard when I actually saw what Sasha's outfit was. What a wonderfully put together look, also very clever and cute. Alexis is such a puzzle to me, like she seems to me like a very...typical drag queen who should know drag poo poo but at the same time she doesn't seem to know a single drat thing about style (what a hideous pantsuit! Also was she wearing leggings that covered her shoes?). Like not understanding that simple and basic aren't synonymous when it comes to clothing. Sasha's outfit was simple, but very well executed and tailored.

The bar had had it with Alexis. I thought the floor was going to collapse when she shuffled off this mortal coil. Willam, who hosts at my local, had also had it with Alexis and kept yelling "NO. NO. STOP TALKING." in that inimitable Willam fashion whenever she opened her mouth.

She will not be missed, and godDAMN that was a hell of a lipsync. I love when a queen goes to battle with that "oh, I'm going to enjoy the gently caress out of this" gleam in her eye. Good job Pep you're awesome.

Sasha's not even my favorite queen this season, but I feel like this win was stolen from her. Her unicorn was unquestionably the best, and the rainbow look was cute and clever. Maybe her cowboy wasn't draggy enough, but 2 out of 3 should've been enough to win. It's a shame, since her winning would've made it anyone's game for the finale. I guess it's pretty obvious who will win the season now.

Also, it's pretty hilar that the winner of a "Macho Man" lipsync is a woman.

If you could please stop posting from my head, that would be great. I came to say everything you said, point by point.

The only thing I'll add is it's very clear Alexis does not have imagination. Every look she had was basic as gently caress and a literal interpretation of the assignment. Rainbow? I have rainbow stripes everywhere! Unicorn? I'm a gold unicorn! Indian? Beaded corset and tribal print skirt! I mean, she didn't even have a necklace for the Indian look. A beaded, turquoise necklace would have been amazing as gently caress. A lot better than a bow on your head.

I was gaga over Trinities cop look. Balls out amazing.

I'm happy with final 4. Shea is gonna win it I think.

YES! I just sorta stared at the screen in shock when she dangled the dreamcatcher over her ear, and I was kinda scared to look when she came out. I wonder if a producer pulled her aside and was like "Um, look, we're okay with controversy and spectacular flameouts, but could you maybe just not do yours in some sort of Native American minstrel abomination? I know you are the most basic of white bitches, but could you please just work with us on this?"

Exactly! Though, even being basic, she could have done more, but she refused to listen to criticism. Every time she was given any criticism, she reacted one of three ways:

  1. "How dare you all let me go out like that, you should have told me I looked basic!" (Especially frustrating when she spent the rest of her time trying to be the older, wiser drag mother.)
  2. "I just don't think that the judges got it. I'm too smart and clever for them."
  3. " I've tried nothing, and I'm all out of ideas! I just don't know what else to do!"

She never really rose to a challenge, she just stood there, sighed, and said "Why is this challenge not coming to me?? I'm good, so I should win!"

I think Shea hit it on the head when she said "I could throw a rock in New York and hit 5 other queens that do what she does". She's somewhat polished, but she's just...Basic. She doesn't really have a niche, she doesn't really have a wheelhouse, she's just a generic starting queen that mastered the basics through rote repetition, then said "OK I am good now!" and decided that was enough.

Though I disagree about Trinity's cop look. Trinity would never have her balls out. The Haus of Taylor TUCKS, gurl!

Trinity's reactions to everything this season have been insanely giffable. It's too bad we didn't have any major drama other than Nina's low self esteem and Alexis. I would love a cut to her during like a Detox/Serena moment. Her sipping that drink while She read Nina was amazing.

Had Eureka stayed, there would have been a lot more drama. Trinity was doing a good job at maintaining her composure around Eureka in the few episodes that she was around, but I think we would have gotten some really great bitchy retorts back at Eureka eventually.

If Sasha wins, I will be over the moon (making a clear intertextual reference to the 1902 Méliès film, Le Voyage dans la Lune), but if Peppermint or Shea wins, I'll be just as happy.

I like Trinity, too, but in a very tight pack of 4, I think she's the one who's just 0.000000000000000000001mm below the others, and will probably get sent home next week with well-deserved accolades.

It's curious, isn't it? Part of me feels like it was an attempt to throw Sasha under the bus via producer fuckery in case it was bad, because she was in charge of it.
But then they really never mentioned that she did a good job putting it together so I don't know.

What's with these garbage minichallenge prizes anyway? "You're responsible for this production hope you don't gently caress it up!" is the worst reward ever.

I think Shea did a really good job this week and actually liked her village people look better, but agree that Sasha probably deserved it.

I really didn't like Trinity at first but god drat if she hasn't grown on me a lot.

Holy poo poo Andie McDowell looks amazing for 59. Like, impossibly amazing.

gently caress you Alexis, it isn't anyone else's job to tell you what looks good. If you were any more basic you'd have line numbers and GOTO statements.

Shea did great but I would have gone with Sasha as the winner this week.

Peppermint just destroys when she lip syncs, and you could see the moment in Alexis' eyes when she realized how outclassed she was.

If any of you youngsters haven't seen the Village People movie (Can't Stop the Music), get on that right away.

Final 4 all have to LSFYL, right? And I mean normally that hasn't been an issue, but what if the person is bad at it? I am worried about Sasha because most of what I've seen of her lip sync is very media driven avant garde. Can she do a traditional lip sync? I hope it isn't a Valentina repeat!

Also, yes Andy McDowell has to be a witch because bitch hasn't aged since the 90s. She looked drat good!
