On this week’s episode of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” the queens must face the music when music star Natalie Cole and Amber Riely from “Glee” make a visit and join RuPaul on the judging panel. In her She-Mail RuPaul hinted at the challenges to come by using titles of her songs.

After showing a video clip from Piyah Martell performing one of Ru’s songs. The mini challenge for this week was for the girls to team up and create a headpiece with a butterfly theme that Piyah could wear in her next video. The queens had only 30 minutes to complete the task. Phi Phi, Kenya, and Jiggly won the challenge.

The main challenge for this week was for the queens to create informercials for RuPaul’s albums “Champion” and “Glamazon”. As winners of the mini challenge Phi Phi and Kenya were team leaders and picked which girls would be on their teams.

Phi Phi’s team had the “Champion” album and Kenya’s team had the “Glamazon” album.

RuPaul makes a visit to the workroom to check on the progress of the girls and their infomercial preparations.

On filming day the queens tape in front of a green screen and it takes a few takes to get the lines down. Then it was time for Team “Champion” to sell their songs. RuPaul and Michelle Visage offered acting tips to the girls.

It’s runway and elimination day. Michelle Visage, Santino Rice, Amber Riley and nine time Grammy Award winner Natalie Cole join RuPaul at the judge’s talbe. The runway theme this week is platinum and gold.

After the runway walks and viewing the infomercials RuPaul said that the girls would be judged individually. While not reaching the top of the charts Milan, Willam, Latrice Royale, Jiggly Calliente, and Phi Phi O’Hara were safe.

Once the judging panel made their comments, and then conferred privately with her fellow judges RuPaul announced that Sharon Needles delivered a sparkling performance and for the second time won the main challenge. Chad Michaels, Kenya Michaels, and Madame Laqueer were all safe; but Dida Ritz and for the second week in a row The Princess were in the bottom two and had to lip syn for their lives to “This Will Be” by Natalie Cole.

After putting on what RuPaul called an amazing performance, she told Dida Ritz to shantay you stay but The Princess was eliminated and had to sashay away.

Next week the top 10 go to prison???????
