A lip sync, in many ways, is like an actor's monologue. Both must cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. They must be interesting. They must change, in big ways or small ways or both. But the great monologues and lip syncs contain a reveal. Sasha Velour is the queen of reveals., and never was this more apparent than at her Drag Race finale lip sync, when she finally went up against her biggest competitor, Shea Couleé. The two performed to Whitney Houston's "So Emotional." Like the best performances, hers is full of juxtapositions: curious but wounded, tentative but wild. Velour's new touring show, Smoke & Mirrors, contains 13 new lip syncs. It's a blend of magic, performance, and drag. I don't know much about it, but by the end of the night, she's rumored to transform into a tree. by Chase Burns
