I'm thrilled. I think Candice & Kree were the strongest. (Other than my beloved Amber .....but that wasn't to be). I would be happy if either won.
Judges: I was surprised by them this year and liked them much more than I was expecting to. I think generally they were honest and offered good coaching advice.
Absolutely! Angie is amazing and will soar even without this win. The final two i'm happy with and i hope they either which one has the spunk to continue in their career if they are not chosen.
I disagree. I never liked Angie, because she doesn't seem genuine. This was touched on in the article, so interesting to also say Angie was the one the show wanted to win. That is ridiculous. Kree is the person I want to win and I suspect millions of others do to. She is genuine and a great singer. I'm not even a country fan and I love the girl! I hope Kree wins this thing, but even if she doesn't she will be a huge star. I am sure Candice will do well, but even with a win I think Kree will outshine her long term.
My faith in Ru is once again supported. Sharon Needles last year, Jinkx Monsoon this year. Ru know what best. The final decision is her's and she makes the right choice every time!!
My BF and I both wanted Amber Holcomb to win the entire show because she truly is the WHOLE idol package...pretty face, long legs that go on for days, and a Whitney Houston voice!! So, now that our favorite's gone, :-( we would be happiest if either Candice or Kree leaves as our next "American Idol!" We are way more connected (especially emotionally) with those two. Both home visit videos were SO touching; especially Kree's (what a tear jerker :-( and very sweet and genuine. Angie, throughout the competition, has come off a bit cheesy, over dramatic, and fake to us. She is an amazing vocalist, no doubt, but the connection is just not there. GO Candice and Kree!! They're in it to WIN it!!!! :-) p.s. Judges SUCK this year bigtime! It was the BEST with Steven Tyler and my celebrity girl crush, (lol) hot and sexy J Lo...please bring 'em back!!
I am really ready for this to all come to an end. I loved the home videos for Candice and Kree. They seemed so genuine and heartfelt and they didn't have to say how much they lvoed their home as it was obvious. I just dont; quite buy Angie and all the joyful clapping and references to "Boston Strong".
The songs. Far too many bad choices. I actually liked Angie this week for the first time ever as she was singing more so than shrieking and then she pulled out the piano. Now I do agree that she looks very comfortable on it and is an unsual formula for a woman etc but I truly find her just screeching and no musicality to it. She does look like Miley Cyrus before she got her gorgeous new do.
Kree...not good song choices at all but her voice generally sounded good. And. Her. Story. (sob) Love her in so many ways and I can see her getting lots of votes.
Candice: Absolutely phenomenal. Her voice, her background, her sincerity, her attitude. Loved tough old Nikki getting all worked up talking about her Candice is an inspiration as a woman.
I have no idea how this is going to play out. I am rooting for Candice.
This article picked up on something about Angie that I have been noticing for a while. I think she is talented, but the video they showed of Angie illustrated it all the more. I found Candice's and Kree's home coming videos somewhat touching, but I sendsed a certain non-genuine nature of Angie's video. It seemed borderline forced. Something you might see from a beauty pageant contestant who is doing a mandatory video, while knowing full well that Kree's video was going to be really touching.
If I had to go with the final 2 solely on performances tonight, I would say it would be Candice and Angie. If I was going on who seemed genuine in the video packages, it would be Candice and Kree.
Lastly, it must be said that I was absolutely loving how emotional Nicki got following seeing the videos of Candice and Kree. Candice and Kree's videos were touching, but Nicki's emotional response to those videos really amplified the genuine nature of their videos. The same can be said of Keith's reaction there for a minute as well.
Agree. Candice should be in the final. Her voice is like honey. Flawless.
I think Jinkx is the clear winner here. She is very talented and will only get better with time. But Jinkx took the high road and seemed much more secure in herself as well as a maturity level above anyone else. She endured a lot of bullying not only by Roxxxy but also by Coco and Detox. Roxxxy just never wowed me. If I went to see a Drag Show and she was headlining I,d be quited bored. Alaska I thought really came on towards the end . Ill Poundcake was hysterical and her one line jabs off camera were hilarious. My only issue with Alaska is that she she didn't break from "Rolodex" sooner. Detox was the biggest disappointment of the season. Detoxes look in the reunion shattered anything she wore during the season . By the way..where was Detox this season? She clearly has it all but for whatever reason didn't bring it this season. Alyssa Edwards is the break out star this season by far. This girl doesn't even know how funny she is . She totally outshined Coco who just couldn't let go of a ridiculous pageant contest(really?) I thought season 5 was just as good as any of the seasons to be honest. Each had its only flavor and my only regret is I wish Ru would go back to the season reunion where the girls all talk candidly as opposed to this almost scripted insincere awkward finale. If she wants to do a live finale please don't deprive the viewers of the queens talking about the season honestly .if you need to add another show please do because I have been left these last 2 seasons wanting answers to my own questions. I miss when the girls talk honestly . Otherwise I'm already waiting for season 6!!!!!!
Thanks for connecting the dots. I didn't read the books...well, that's a lie. I read the first and couldn't get past the first chapter in the second.So the show is all new to me and I am not aware if the plot line has deviated from the books etc. I do find it all fairly confusing tho.
Thanks - that makes a lot more sense!
Wonderful conclusion, and for once Rupaul got it right , Jinkx monsoon was the true superstar and clear winner. I love Alyssa Edward but even a starlike her saw Jinkx as the one to beat. I will cherish this season as the most memorable and was so happy to see a Star Born.
I believe he said "fringed" sleeves.
I was rooting for Alaska, too. Out of all the queens, she seemed to grow the most. She's not a comic, she's just naturally funny. I'm happy that Jinkx won because there's a lot of talent there that could go in all sorts of directions. Jinkx was also a little kinder and not as ruthless as some of the queens (Roxxxy!). And Lineysha, girl really? She actually returned to the show only to tell Ru that she still didn't know who Diana Ross is! Considering she's one of Ru's inspirations, she could have Googled her or faked it or something!
I honestly think if you are to give Sharon Needles the "superstar potential" bill that (I also think) she rightly deserves- you also need to admit that, beyond the awkwardness she displayed in the reunion episode (because let's face it- everyone was awkward and stilted in that thing) Jinkx has just as much, if not more, potential to transcend the very limited bounds of current generic drag to become something mainstream. I can see her successful on Broadway, her video shorts show a strong potential for cinema, and she's already done Funny or Die. And, from all the evidence I've seen, she's just an overall smarter person than Sharon Needles. Sharon is amazing and deserves her win and I do believe she has what it takes to be one of the most successful winners, but so does Jinkx- and to think otherwise is to put on those Rose-tinted glasses the op described earlier.
Go to Amazon books look for The Whistleblower Author Roger Clifton, it is unbelievable and well worth a read.
I love this show and jinx really deserved it I'm so glad it was her!!!!!!!!!

Jinkx was brilliant, funny, intelligent, all around a star. So thrilled she won. This my first year watching, I'm hooked because of Jinkx. The courtroom theme was hilarious because of Jinkx and Alaska, I could watch it many more times.
