RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15 Episode 14 Review: Blame It On The Edit

We did it, Drag Race fans! The final round of competitors is here before the grand finale.

The High 4 queens had a closing chance on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15 Episode 14 to show why they should have a spot in the Grand Finals.

Of course, RuPaul said only three would reach the final. However, this is Drag Race; eliminations never really go that deliberate.

“Blame It On The Edit” was an emotional yet anticipated spin on Drag Race.

Between the clip, the choreography and the rap verses, we knew what was in detail for the queens for her second vixen clip. But even with a steady stream of occasions, the show has always found a way to pull tears in every way.

I like a great music video issue. Of course, it was done until death, until the early years of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Nonetheless, these queens have earned the prospect of starring in a music video.

This issue has some of the highest fund values, the units are well designed, and the queens get pretty fierce on camera. And unlike other challenges, like Snatch Recreation, which is timeless, you can see the quality of the video and the ideas develop over the years.

She was a fierce competitor, but when you play a grimy game you usually get dirty results.

In this case, the space-themed music video came out shiny and polished.

The units were minimal, but the queens were the biggest drama. All four stole attention, whether via their looks or their dancing abilities (each in good and bad manners).

Top 4 - RuPaul's Drag Race Season 15 Episode 14

With only 4 queens remaining, one of the best ways to debate the turn is to go queen by queen. First up, the winner of the Maxi Problem: Sasha Colby!

Was anyone else blown away by Sasha in the clip?

Her alien gaze was so hauntingly charming; it was hard to look away when she started rapping because the makeup and ensemble was so well done. Pair that with her attractive Barbarella looks throughout the dance scene and you have a recipe for a video vixen celebrity.

Her appearance was beautiful, and her words were on fire. She wasn’t the best rapper in the group, but she served her lyrics like a pro.

Plus, we won’t overlook her rhinestone orchid on the runway.

Her “Drag Excellence” dress was a stunning ensemble that shone every time she moved. The dress was the right mix of magnificence and pageantry.

We rely on Sasha at all times to bring some glamor to the runway. Her selection of frilly orchids was subtle enough not to steal attention, but big enough to leave a lasting impression.

No wonder she pulled off this victory.

Luxx Noir London was a detailed second of the queens.

Same as Sasha, her ensembles in the music video were beautiful and video ready. My favorite is her black latex corset and white boots for the dancing part.

She appeared attractive and assured of an alien quality.

His rap verse was a bit laborious to listen to due to the vocals and audio mixing. It could have been higher if the vocals had been mixed in more, but that’s a post-production issue on the editors’ part.

Luxx’s rap verse was well written and served quite well.

And her runway dress was so stunningly elegant and easy. She didn’t want elaborate designs or options to remove from the flowing silhouette.

[In confessional] Karma is a dish that is eaten very fresh. You thought you bought me. On which face is the egg now? Not mine. Yours.

Luxx Black London

Luxx is a famous person with all her costumes and clothing decisions. However, she does surprisingly well when using neutral colors.

She excels in black and white combos.

Although she is lucky to have done a great job. If the judges found out she took a nap during brainstorming, they might have roasted her for sleeping at a necessary level in the contestants.

Three Wins - RuPaul's Drag Race Season 15 Episode 14

Anetra was a fascinating case of a queen who was an important performer but not good at certain choreographies. That’s a huge distinction between lip-syncing and stepping in place.

Look, she had all the right elements: distinctive looks, fierce dancing abilities, and a powerful rap verse.

However, there is no way you can predict how a queen might be affected by a twist. Michelle Visage forcing the queens to record the clip immediately caught Anetra off guard.

The twist paid for what had to be done.

The rap scene in the music video helped her a lot, but those dance scenes held her back.

Anetra wanted to hit them harder and feel more confident in her strikes. Showing concern in a recording issue defeats the queen in the final judgment as it might appear in the final cut.

It’s a shame she stumbled at the finish as her closing track was stunning!

Now all I have to do is win the crown.


The fitted blue velvet dress with the silver fringe accents looked amazing as she moved down the runway. She gave an overly futuristic trend with a touch of high fashion. Her costume was a successful look.

If it hadn’t been for the dance strikes, Anetra could have claimed the highest.

In the case of Mistress Isabelle Brooks, it was a unique story.

Can we all agree that it was obvious she was hit from behind? The thriller of who can take one of the many places is long gone.

Mistress’ fate was sealed when she couldn’t support others and forgot her dance strikes.

Her rap scenes had been searing and would have shielded her every two weeks. However, when there are only 4 queens left among the contestants, the judges have to criticize every small element. And when a key half is the dance, his dance part fell short.

His trail partially compensated for the tripping problem.

I agreed with the judges that her gold fringed cheetah dress looked elegant and beautiful. Every time she moved down the runway, it was so amazing how the cheetah print moved with her and reflected in the light.

It could have been higher if the cheetah’s spots had appeared a bit darker. With the movement and the bright lights, the spots had wandered off, and in some circumstances they appeared pale.

The dress might work better in pictures instead of playing and with lots of movement.

Predicting the Top 4 - RuPaul's Drag Race Season 15 Episode 14

Anetra and Mistress being downstairs two wasn’t amazing. As mentioned above, Sasha and Luxx dominated the week, so the others had to fall by comparison.

The lip-synching of David Guetta’s “When Love Takes Over” which features Kelly Rowland was, by all means, commonplace.

It was a nice amount for the queens to show their feelings and spread the lyrics. They didn’t need to do much movement to the beat since they were wearing robes, but the music allowed them to do more in case they needed to. I want them to have accomplished more.

[In confessional] However, we still have another problem. Look at this price. Watch the grand finale. I see you! You’re mine! And I’m coming to get you.

Sasha Colby

It seems pretty dull that this lip-sync is RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15 Double Shantay.

Like, why didn’t the amount Anetra vs Marcia Marcia Marcia get it? Michelle even admitted it was her new favorite lip-sync of all time. If I had to choose, Anetra got the lip-sync, but the double safety came across as a filler win to avoid wasting RuPaul’s High 4 favorites.

Werk Room Final Ideas:

  • The twist of queens having to perform the actual choreography after learning it will never be outdated. It’s so deliciously diabolical and enjoyable! Drag Race wants more twists like these because it keeps queens and viewers on their toes.

  • Queens giving comforting speeches to their youth will always be emotional. So many tears!

  • RuPaul needs to get new Tic Tacs. They must be taken collectively at this level.
