Finale: So You Think You're a Drag Queen [video]

Eight winners return to Town Danceboutique for the $2,500 grand prize

In the finale of Town Danceboutique’s So You Think You’re a Drag Queen, previous winners from the past year compete to win the $2,500 grand prize — Anastasia, Kimora Iman, Miranda Rights, Shineta Iman, Liquid Amour, Mecedes Cassadine, Ginger, and Sasha Chalet.

Hosted by Shi-Queeta Lee and Lena Lett, the contestants had to perform solo numbers, win challenges — including runway limbo and the most ferocious game of musical chairs you’ve ever witnessed (drag queen catfight alert!) — and even make an outfit out of Metro Weekly magazines.

In the end, there was only one winner — and she was… well, you’ll have to see for yourself. And do stick around through the end credits for a revealing surprise.

Held on Friday, Jan. 7, 2011 at Town Danceboutique in Washington, D.C.
