Lip Sync Battle ★★★
3 Disco

Surely in this Drag Race world we’re all lip-syncing for our lives and the Picnic is no different. Mama Ru has blown the art of Drag wide open to such a massive audience, everyone from woke celebs, people that used to be in Hollyoaks and now 3 mobile are muscling in on the act.

Hosted by the dragnificent Davina Devine with a gang of “influencers” and plebs lip syncing for their Picnic LEGACY (and free tickets for 3 Arena gigs) the assembled crowd of confused toddlers, passing trade and Casa Bacardi overflow are treated to a rendition of Uptown Funk before a faux Ken Doll, missing from his shift in Eddie Rockets, gives us some Grease Lightening.

Things step up a gear when crowd cutie Joe takes on Like A Virgin throwing his sunglasses and metallic bumbag into the audience with full Madge cheeky bravado, even managing to source a feather boa from the ether.

Lip-syncing is no karaoke run-through, these routines must have been rehearsed religiously in suburban bedrooms from childhood.

If you haven’t been living your life for these songs then oh honey don’t.
