Best Of 2016: 'RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars 2'


Through all of the darkness that was 2016, there was a light:

'RuPaul's Drag Race' returned for its 2nd season of All Stars, and while many had issues with the team focused 1st season, this one?

OH THIS ONE.

In the iconic words of Violet Chachki:

CAME. THROUGH.

With a stellar cast of queens including Alyssa Edwards, Katya, Detox, Ginger Minj, Roxxxy Andrews, Adore Delano, Coco Montrese and eventual winner Alaska, we also saw the rebirth of season 2 queen Tatianna. And, who can forget the return of season 4 villain Phi Phi O'Hara who revealed not much had changed.

What set the show apart from its previous outing especially was the big twist, which saw RuPaul name the two BEST queens of the week, with those two lipsyncing for their legacy. The winner would then decide which of the bottom queens would go home.

This result saw some EPIC performances, including the one below (which also resulted in our favorite reaction from the season):



Seeing Tatianna soak in the fact that she won.....was a beauty.

The season didn't go without any drama though.

In only episode 2, we saw the departure of season 6 runner-up Adore Delano, who decided that being back wasn't what she really wanted and need to tap out.

How can we forget the closing challenge of the season?

Watching the final 4 perform RuPaul's new single 'Read U Wrote U' will go down in the shows hERstory as one of the most iconic moments



 Minus Roxxxy's part.....



While the season wasn't without it's bumps in the road, it delivered on ENTERTAINING ride right from the start!!

What did you guys think of the season?
