The bottom two contestants last night on RP's DR were troublemaker Akashia and quirky Tammie Brown, who had to "lipsync for their lives." They mouthed a song by guest judge Michelle Williams from Destiny's Child.
Akashia was saved from elimination, not only because her performance was so amazing that she brought Michelle Williams to tears — but because Tammie hadn't memorized the song, and therefore did not lipsync at all. This was an odd finish to an episode that saw the contestants forming rival girl groups, each of which did a Destiny's Child number. Ongina's group, Serving Fish, did a great job with "Say My Name," but Akashia's group, 3D, didn't really bring it with "Independent Women." When Michelle Williams critiqued Akashia's dancing, Akashia disrespectfully disagreed, saying "I know I brought it." Judge Santino Rice said Akashia "radiated a bad energy." Clearly she's being made out to be the bad girl of the show, so thank goodness she wasn't kicked off. You'd think with so many drag queens, there would be more drama, but so far, Akashia is the only one worth watching. Clip above; watch the full episode here.
