My name is Alyssa Edwards…and I need a- I need a- I need a get all up in this Blackpool gig!

Hey readers and welcome back to MikeyMix! As you know I am quite the fan of hit reality competition show: ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and I have had the honour of seeing one of my season 9 favourites (Aja) blow-up a small stage…

I have once again been in touch with new and upcoming, drag queen specialist, events promoter team ‘Connor Matthew Productions’ and it’s safe to say they: “have not come to play, they’ve came to SLAY!!!” (to loosely quote Shea Couleé).

As the title of this blog post suggests: the team over at ‘Connor Matthew Productions’ have booked the sensational, exceptional, mega talented tongue pop and lip sync extraordinaire: MISS ALYSSA EDWARDS!!

Safe to say: I am GAGGING!!

For those readers who don’t watch ‘Drag Race’: Alyssa Edwards shot to fame in season 5 of the hit show (many would argue this is one of the best seasons of the show as it really set the bar for future seasons) and finished 6th after losing out to a lip sync battle with her (at the time) rival, Coco Montrese.

Alyssa quickly became a loved fan favourite and so was invited back to compete on the second series of ‘Drag Race’ spin-off: ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars’ in which she finished 5th place…BUT….she did give us one of the most memorable lip sync performances in ‘Drag Race’ herstory!!!!

The Quest For Fame: The Impact of Reality Television in Music

Good afternoon readers, welcome to MikeyMix! For today’s blog post I am going to be showcasing something different: as part of my coursework for university I was required to create a two-minute video news piece on a topic of my choice, I chose the impact televised talent shows is having on musicians and entertainers.

I’m going to embed the video below as I am very happy with how it turned out (I’m far from the best editor in the world so just bare that in mind!), I hope you all enjoy watching it:

(Be sure to check out the social media pages of all my interviewees as they are all immensely talented and deserve the promo!)

I understand this is a very short blog post but rest assured I will be reviewing the new single by Halsey shortly after it’s release in the UK later tonight.

However, do let me know if you’d be interested in me potentially creating more videos (I’m very tempted to experiment with vlogging?).

Until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jamming!!
