Over 400 Hells Kitchen boys and gurls came out for the finale of NYC’s So You Think You Can Drag, hosted by Showbiz Spitfire Paige Turner at New World Stages. Alexis Michelle took home the crown last Thursday after competing with the top five queens: Schwa de Vivre, Holly Box Springs, Maci Sumcox, and Dusty Ray Bottoms for nine solid weeks. Chelsea Piers and Nomi Sas joined Paige Turner and the Spitfires for an opening number that brought down the house, and Sutton Lee Seymour and Honey Davenport, two winners from past seasons, made special appearances throughout the night. Paige Turner pulled out all of the stops with her quintessential rendition of “99 Red Balloons.” Alexis Michelle won a cash prize, a photo shoot with Andrew Werner, and her own show at New World Stages.
