Every Queen was on point: Courtney’s ‘Wings’ from season 6, Sharon’s solo spookiness, Jinkx’s vaudeville charade, Violet’s mesmerizing burlesque, Pandora’s kitchy comedy, Adore’s stunning vocals and Katya’s fucking brilliant Titanic performance art piece sung in Russian… Snatch Game, Rocky Horror, Michelle Visage singing Madonna’s Take A Bow… The entire thing was a masterstroke of genius!

Christmas Queens

Oh Christmas Queens…
Oh Christmas Queens…
How lovely are your baubles!

O2 Academy Christmas Queens

Christmas Queens rocked up into the O2 Academy in Glasgow on Dedember 3rd as part of the UK leg of the tour.
Featuring Michelle Visage, Katya, Detoxx, Alaska, Manila Luzon and Phi Phi O’Hara in a festive themed evening of decadence, humor and fuckery, the entire show was as bizarre and brilliant as anyone could imagine! Showcasing the recent Christmas Queens 2 album (available on iTunes…) The cast on the Glasgow gig were hilariously brilliantand kudos to Katya, Detoxx and Alaska for their unexpected performance of Read U Wrote U from the All Stars 2 finale!

Michelle Visage singing O Holy Night was a lighters in the air (or iPhone flashlight in the air for the shady fuckers) moment that brought the evening to a poignant could-actually-hear-a-pin-drop for a few moments segment. She really is a fantastic singer with a brilliant voice.

It was all Queens together as the night ended with a group sing a long to Auld Lang Syne!

And check out the utterly amazing Katya at the end of We Wish You A Merry Christmas! I cannot wait to see her live in Glasgow next year at AXM! She’s an absolute All Star in my eyes!

I hope a Christmas Queens Tour becomes an annual tradition!
