The best lip-syncs of season 5, ranked


Now that iconic queen Shea Couleé has been crowned the winner RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season 5, it’s time to look back at the lip syncs of the season from worst to best.

Unlike the previous one All stars seasons where the two best queens of the week would face off in a Lip-Sync for Your Legacy, a lip-sync assassin was hired each week to play against one of the best queens of the week.

Lip-sync assassins are former queens who are known to have memorable performances or who have won a large number of their lip-syncs over the course of a season, knocking out many of their fellow queens.

Note: This list will not include the final lip sync against Couleé, Miz Cracker, and Jujubee.

7. Miz Cracker vs. Kennedy Davenport – “Fantasy”

Nothing was worse this season than seeing Davenport, one of the franchise’s most beloved performers, being relegated to perform a country song. And it’s not that country songs can’t be performed on a drag race – they can and some of them even fit perfectly! But in the words of Alyssa Edwards, there was Rigga Morris here!

6. Shea Couleé vs. Vanessa Vanjie Mateo – “Open Your Heart”

Although not a “bad” lip-sync per se, but many fans just couldn’t fathom why Miss Vanjie was brought back as an assassin, as she is not considered a lip-syncing assassin in the fandom. . She didn’t do either bad in performance, but Couleé clearly surpassed her and won that match with flying colors.

5. Jujubee against Monét X Change – “Juice”

Jujubee might have been a lip-syncing assassin in any other season, but this time, she didn’t know Lizzo’s words to “Juice.” Still, it was a fun time and Monet X Change’s performance made many of us realize that she was in fact a lip-syncing assassin even though we were confused at first by her appearance. After that I’m sure a lot of viewers watched his season 10 performances and All stars 4, including its iconic fake-out of the old one.

4. Miz Cracker vs. Roxxxy Andreews – “One last time”

Overall, this lip sync was not this exciting from a wide perspective… but Roxxxy Andrews was there to make it clear that she was going to leave an impact on All Stars 5! She came prepared with all the gags and literally eclipsed everything Miz Cracker had to offer.

3. Miz Cracker vs. Morgan McMichaels – “Where Have You Been”

There’s a conspiracy theory on Reddit that this lip-syncing was filmed twice because the show’s producers wanted it to be a tie when McMichaels was clearly going to be the winner. Either way, it’s clear that she was the best at it and it’s still odd that the two of them got a victory. Let’s face it, McMichaels was so good, it made us forget that she’s not actually a lip-syncing assassin.

2. Shea Couleé vs. Alyssa Edwards – “Neutron Dance”

Alyssa Edwards delivered such a rare and seemingly low-energy lip-sync (for her) that led fans to believe she was being paid to lose this game. However, that can’t take away the fact that Couleé left everything on stage and performed this song thoroughly, making up for how odd that lip-syncing could sound.

1. India Ferrah vs. Yvie Oddly

The very first lip sync of the season was the best. This lip-sync is Course de dragsters de RuPaul to his favorite. While not an “assassin,” Oddly gave the franchise some memorable lip syncs. The Season 11 winner presented herself as if she had something to prove, just like India Ferrah. Unfortunately Ferrah couldn’t keep up with Oddly, but wow that was great.
