2013 EOY! National Entertainer of the Year Pageant! Our Predictions!

eoy

We’re getting down to the wire boys and girls and it’s time to figure out who you’re going to root on for the next National Entertainer of the Year.  First of all, we know there’s only 10 girls in the final night, but we decided to pick 12 to make it more interesting…but we have to make a little disclaimer first.

We’re not really sure why, but we have a strange feeling that this year, someone unpredicted or not well known, will come in and swoop the pageant!   This hasn’t really happened in a long time and it is the 10th anniversary of Nina D’Angelo‘s unpredicted win with amazing talent…AND Shayla Simpson‘s 20th Anniversary(Although she’s no longer with us) of her amazing win and unprecedented talent! Based on these historical marks, we…the boys of raannt…are predicting a swoop by an unpredicted win.

But…since we’re in the predictions business…Here’ our predictions for the Top 12 and the Winner of National Entertainer of the Year 2013!

Top 12…In No Specific Order:

Tiffany McCray

Addison Taylor

Brooke Lynn Hytes

Raquell Lord

Alana Steele

Mercedes Black

Tajma Stetson

Roxana Hardplace

Tori Sass

Deangela “Show” Shannon

Nikki Chin

Kelli Matthews

 

Now…here’ the important part.  The Winner! Based on what we know, have seen and heard…We’d call our bookie and put our money on Raquell Lord.  But…our longshot guessBrooke Lynn Hytes and Tori Sass are gonna bring it!

Let us know in the comments below who you think will win…  We have our eyes on a few others too! Special shout out to Home Town Girl Alana Steele! Bring it home baby!

Wishing all the girls the best…and don’t fuck it up!

Make sure to come up and say hi and get your picture with us to go on the website! Love ya and best of luck to all of the girls! And check out all of our drag star interviews with the girls of RuPaul’s Drag Race like Sharon Needles, Roxxxy Andrews, Jinkx Monsoon, Shangela, Ongina, Tyra Sanchez and all the girls! Plus many other global beauties like Maria Roman, Erica Andrews, Cassandra Cass and others in our Interview section HERE!

And as always, remember…to be a true winner; Be Yourself.  Be Fearless.  Be Your Own Unexpected Luxury!

EOY! National Entertainer of the Year Pageant…List of Contestants!

erica1

With the passing of some of all time favorite performers this year, Erica Andrews and Whitney Paige, as well as many others, we thought it would be interesting to pay tribute to the art of female impersonation by reviewing and doing tribute pieces to several National pageants.  We’ve watched drag from afar for quite some time, attending national pageants, interviewing all of the contestants of RuPaul’s Drag Race, going to our favorite bars and watching our favorite queens perform, but we’ve only been observers. This year, we wanted to give back to world of drag by highlighting the beauty, sisterhood and true entertainment that comes from within…one of the greatest art forms of our time.  In the following week leading up to the National Entertainer of the Year Pageant, we will be spotlighting some of our favorite former winners by posting our interviews with them.  Please enjoy our interview with Erica Andrews from several years ago HERE!

Here are your contestants for National Entertainer of the Year 2013! (We borrowed the list from Carrie Fairfield…drag expert extraordinaire! Make sure to visit her amazing web site with everything drag…including forums HERE!)
