Added DiffLines:

* In episode 13's Untucked, the pressures of getting to the top 4 catch up with Kandy, not helped by getting criticism over her messy runway look, and she has a panic attack. She winds up spending a good portion of Untucked with a set medic, with even guest judge Cynthia Erivo making a point to check on her. Despite this, Kandy gets back on the main stage, is unsurprisingly put in the bottom, and sends Olivia Lux home in a hard-fought lipsync. Again - ''right after a panic attack.''

Added DiffLines:

** Tina Burner and Utica's lip-sync to Black Eyed Peas' "My Humps" was epic, with Utica's spooky-yet-sexy character take on the track winning the judges over.
** Symone and Utica lip-syncing to Ariana Grande's "No Tears to Cry", Symone looked absolutely breathtaking during the lip-sync, the light hitting her shimmering gold dress in all the right ways as she perfectly emoted the song.


* While Kandy successfully exploited GenreSavvy and led the Nice Girls Roast to her first main challenge victory it was Utica's InsultComic routine that be remembered for its, um, SoBadItsGood tendencies. Her awkward, unusually harsh reads of the room ended up getting her heckled in a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome for guest judge Loni Love.

**The routine then CrossesTheLineTwice when Utica tells [=RuPaul=] to stand up after calling her a fashion icon. Ru responds naturally - by FlippingTheBird with both hands then miming getting fisted. This is in reference to a long running claim that after walking the runway Ru switches out the bottom half for sweatpants before sitting at the judging table.

Added DiffLines:

* A'whora's "Lockdown Supershero" look in episode 7, easily one of the most polished looks to ever be made entirely in the Werk Room. Her win that episode was no surprise to anyone.


Added DiffLines:

** The other runner-up, [[spoiler:Tayce, is a rare queen to survive ''four'' lipsyncs, the last of which was a double-shantay, which cemented her as one of the all-time great lipsync assassins in the franchise. It kept her afloat right up till the final three.]]


* Even though she was eliminated the episode prior, Denali is arguably the true winner of the soft drink branding challenge because, unlike the queens who were there for that challenge, Denali ''actually'' created her own soft drink and marketed it before the season began, completely selling out a month before the epiosd even aired.

* This season's winner makes history. [[spoiler:Lawrence Chaney is not only the first winner from Scotland, but the ''first plus-sized girl to win!'']]
** Credit should go to one of the runners-up. [[spoiler:Prior to the pandemic break, Bimini Bon-Boulash was usually safe with one bottom placement, fading into the background a bit. ''After'' the break, she came back with a vengeance, got ''four wins'' in rapid succession and became a huge fan favorite. Probably one of the most epic glow-ups in ''Drag Race'' herstory.]]

* In episode 10, Ru finally drops the big question: who should go home tonight and why? As always, everyone gives reluctant but polite answers... ''except'' resident MotorMouth Kandy Muse, who when Denali singles her out, stands up to the judges for herself and her partner Gottmik, and goes off into a garbled, minute-long rant that belongs here just for the sheer audacity. She shades Tina, Denali, Olivia and the judges in one breath. Amazing.

* Like Jan before her, season 13's Denali recreated each of her lipsyncs from the show, sometimes even in ice skating routine form, and posted them to her Youtube channel. Being a DanceBattler and lipsync assassin, these videos are utterly amazing each time but special mention goes to her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQi1AEsEb00 "100% Pure Love" by Crystal Waters lipsync]]. Not only does Denali feature next to her the queen she eliminated, but she also showcases the performers of the Chicago drag scene with ample spotlight, including previous contestants Dida Ritz, Laila [=McQueen=], the Vixen and Detox (and a voiceover cameo from reigning All Star Shea Couleé).

** Her lipsync to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIekgKYehyM&ab_channel=DenaliFoxx "Shackles (Praise You)"]] by Mary Mary. She had to wake up at 3 AM and hike in drag down a mountain, in order to film the lipsync and hike back up before the sunset. The result is an amazing video of Denali skating in full drag on a ''frozen lake'', surrounded by snow-capped mountains. SceneryPorn at its finest.


* Special shout out to Denali's mom for being a badass indigienous woman who's a ''6th degree black belt''

-->'''Kandy:''' Uhm, first and foremost I wanna say that I didnít know Tina Burner owned flames or the colors orange, red and yellow. Youíve never seen Tina walking down the runway lookin' like a ho, like this ''[gestures to Gottmik]'' looking flawless. For number one. And for number two, me and Gottmik had the ''hardest challenge'' in this entire group. Cause Iím big and sheís little and yet we ''still'' made it work. All these bitches have the same size, so thereís no excuse why they should look as weak, and Olivia and Denali look like the weakest out of everyone on the stage. Just my opinion.

Added DiffLines:

** Tayce and Ellie's lip-sync to "The Last Thing On My Mind" by Steps was incredible, with both girls pulling out all the stops, special mention goes to Ellie's cartwheel into a dip. Neither girl ends up eliminated and BOTH move on to the finale, with Ellie managing to claw her way to the end without a win and Tayce surviving her FOURTH lip-sync!

Added DiffLines:

** Utica's lip-sync against Elliott to Company B's "Fascinated" makes the list because of it's surprising turnout, with Utica completely defying all our expectations (given her first episode showing wasn't great) and killing the lip-sync with comedy, perfectly timed moves, and even some impressive floor choreo.


** Kandy Muse and Symone's lipsync to Fifth Harmony's "BO$$" is amazing, Symone gives perfect face, attitude, and a very tight lipsync, Kandy gives high-energy moves and floor choreography, and the pair are even in sync at points of the song. Symone is declared the winner, but RuPaul can't bring himself to eliminate Kandy either!
