Eric, thank you for writing such a balanced piece. And I so agree. Alaska has shown growth and maturity. And then, so has Jinx. Roxy ... well, lets face it ... she thinks her shit doesn't stink! And I'm guessing that it does! She is nasty and can be overly personal. She talks about being pageant, but let's face it, she is a plus size pageant at best.
I was definitely TEAM JINX, but now I certainly wouldn't be upset if Alaska won! If Roxy won, well ... Here's my view ... Roxy is a total ankle! And we all know an ankle is 3 feet lower than a C*&%%%! ANd I mean that in a non female anatomical way!
I think either Jinkx or Alaska should win
Are you guys serious? Jinx is the embodiment of all things drag and glamour!
You have my vote Jinxy!
Alaska BETTER win this! Jinx is a bit too sloppy / cliche, and Roxy is the epitome of tacky, in overall look & attitude. Alaska embodies spontaneity, personality, consistency & growth.
JINXX! Were pulling for you!
ALASKA ALASKA ALASKAAA!!! i love you girl you have everything that it takes to be America next top superstar! Thru all the bs and all the criticism of being the partner of the last winner, you became your own person & role model. I love you girl & YOU ARE AMERICAS NEXT TOP DRAG SUPER STAR!!!! Your beautiful funny & the most importantly you showed how a real champion should be. Win it girl for the real people, you kept it 100%. LOVE YOU GIRL HOPE YOU MAKE IT TO NUMBER ONE BECAUSE YOU DESERVE ITTTT!!!!
Alaska should be the next drag superstar.
ALASKA IS THE BEST DRAG SUPERSTAR AND SHE SHOULD BE THE NEXT QUEEN. MISS RUPAUL YOUR SHOW IS BEST AND I WILL BE WATCHING NEXT SEASON SWEETHEART. NANCY SAUNDERS
OF COURSE I missed a Donna Summer medley. Of course. I am listening to "Bad Girls" right now in protest. Stupid VCR...
It really is a strong Final 4. I think Kree's B2 appearance will likely help kick her into the F2. Her fans have supported her consistently throughout the season, and the fact that she just started having trouble this close to the finale means that they'll be super energized the next few weeks. Plus, she'll absorb all of Janelle's country votes. So I am predicting a Kree/Candice F2 right now.
I did not watch Clay's original season. I started with S3. But personally I found him awkward and manic last night. That little bit between him and Ryan was so weird. "A lot sure has changed since then!" "I miss Reuben right now." Mmhmm. I do think they should do an all-stars season (I can't imagine Fox is not pushing for that right now, given the massive ratings slide this season), and Clay would be an obvious pick for it. At this point many of the contestants who had signed to labels have lost their representation. I imagine they'd have a pretty hearty roster of singers to pick from, and since you'd skip all of the initial auditions/semi-finals it could be markedly shorter than a regular season...

Damn. I wanted to hear what you thought of the group number. I tease you not, they did compilation of Donna Summer's hits. Most curious to get your take on it.
Cute that Paula came on and lovely that Dolly Parton wrote the note. She would be awesome as a judge but she is such a big personality and dresser etc, it might be brutal for anybody trying to get attention away from her. Mind you, they've managed this season with Nikki and Mariah. & you are right, Mariah, really focused in this week and said some very sweet things without rambling.
Agreed with the voting public....Janelle was the one to go and she should not have been saved.
One last thing: This is such a strong Top Four and totally likable/adorable.
Was Clay really weird?
Somehow I happened onto your blog (all the way from Seattle) a few weeks ago. Your rundowns are spot on -- more importantly - written with a keen sense of humor. Such fun. Where in the hec is Rochester anyway?
I think Amber is really a gem of a singer, but for whatever reason she is simply not garnering votes. Even with two very good performances last night I think she'll be in danger. The surprise for me would be Kree or Angie in the bottom along with Janelle. But we shall see!
I spent alot of time considering how Nikki contained her breasts. Quite the dress. Awesome make up. But, I digress:
Candice: She did a far better job of PA song than she did but I also thought it was too simple a song for her to choose at the point. The 2nd song, i wasn't familiar with but thought a fabulous vocal.
Janelle: I don't think she has any problem with confidence. I think she is a happy soul who loves Country. I actually preferred the first song but I think she is in the bottom this week and the judges will not use the save.
Angie: I have figured out what I think is her problem. She sounds better when she sings in her bottom register. When she sings higher she sounds like she is shrieking. I hated that she dedicated the song to Boston. Right. Ryan has already done that. Was this vote garnering? If so, it backfired on me. Also, I LOVE the Pretenders and she blew this song so badly. Just like she ruined that BB song last week. The second song was better.
Kree: I was surprised by the two song choices as well. I dont; think this was her best night but both showed a great vocal range and she has a lovely manner and should stay.
Amber: OMG.. Love her. I must say it was not Mariah Carey who made "Without You" famous. it was Harry Nilsson. At least MC said so....eventually. But it was the final song that I thought was astoundingly good and she was certainly the very best of the night. I loved her when she sang Funny Valentine and this was even better. Again, the best of the night BY FAR.
Janelle is going home. If Amber is in the bottom, I might have to start smoking.
@ Curt & Eric: I think you both are making valid points about Rory McCann. He was markedly more menacing in Season 2 and just too mild in the last episode.
I disagree with you about Rory McCann playing the Hound. He was particularly effective in Blackwater (Season 2 Ep 9), both in his encounter with Sansa in her chambers and with Joffrey and Tryrion in the battle. I'm not sure how much more "menacing" he can be than when he tells Sansa that "All men are killers..."
Is there a particular actor you believe who could do better?
Thank you for the clarification on Podrick, folks. You're absolutely right. As soon as you mentioned that he's still with Brienne (well, so far as we know, as that story ended on a hell of a cliffhanger) the rest of Pod's journey snapped into focus in my mind.
Allanon, interesting tidbit about Martin instructing the show to change Melisandre. She's a fascinating character in both the books and the show, and personally I love her almost tragic irony. She is likely 100 percent right about her prophecy, and she's really trying to save the realm. She just bet on the wrong horse.
Podrick Payne is still a major player. Patch Face was not cast or has not been listed as cast in any way. The producers said Melisandre's character has been altered under George Martin's instructions...
Cathy Pod make it to Book Four and maybe to five ( he is with Briena all the time) , and the one who captured Jaime and Briene are the Series is called Locke
