Fabulous makeup and extravagant dresses were the talk of the night as CSUSB hosted its third annual Drag Show at the Student Union Events Center.
CSUSB students were the first to take the stage as the amateur hour took off.
The students performed well and got the audience in the mood for what was coming.
From the students that performed, Kendall received the most attention as the opening act.
He set the bar high as his performance surprised everyone and they cheered on for more.
His fierce attitude when he took of his coat and unveiled his outfit made everyone’s jaw drop.
“I loved it!…All of the students brought their own interesting flavor but Kendall was the fiercest and most interesting part of the first act,” said student Gabby Valadez.
The second act was the main highlight of the night and featured a talented cast that audience members really enjoyed.
The main star of the night was Morgan McMichaels.
He was featured on the second season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” on Logo TV and has since gained popularity.
McMichael’s performance was not limited to showing off his goods, as he would occasionally take to the stand and make the audience burst into laughter with his comedic charm.
“Hold up everyone….this @#$&% wants to get my picture and it ain’t easy looking this good, you have to suck in that gut,” said McMichaels.
Two more guests from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” made an appearance, Raven and Sonique.
After performing for “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Raven’s career has taken full swing and has since been featured in “America’s Next Top Model” and has made 10 appearances as a mentor to other competitors on the spin off series “RuPaul’s Drag U.”
Raven and McMichaels both had a similar style but presented each act with a unique flavor.
Sonique wore long dresses that were classy and elegant.
What Sonique lacked in energy, he made up with a relaxed attitude that was the perfect compliment to the rest of the cast.
When he took to the stage for a third time, the heat really turned up as he removed his shirt, revealing next to nothing and performed a back flip.
The audience stood on their feet and cheered as Sonique completely changed her attitude, giving the audience even more energy.
The event was not limited to Drag Queens, as one of the nation’s leading drag kings also made an appearance.
Landon Cider presented her various alter egos that ranged from pop stars to Disney’s Peter Pan.
She opened the curtains and ran out to the stage dressed as a very convincing Pit Bull.
The crowd jumped out of their seats from the excitement and began singing along.
In an interview with Starpulse.com, Cider said that Pit Bull was her favorite alter ego and said “The reaction I get from the crowd is always joyous. They are shocked and I love that feeling of knowing that I could transform into someone like Pit Bull and that the audience would react so positively to it.
“I really enjoyed how the energy grew as the performance progressed,” said CSUSB student Jorge DeLoSantos.
DeLoSantos added that, “People should check out future events because they are fun, educational, and free.”
