    Fucking chills. I think the only other performer who's given me this is Evah Destruction's Royal T/That Laughing Track performances. Fucking gorgeous.

    Sasha's performances make me cry. They are so beautiful, filled with love and passion. You can see the heart and mind behind it. Watching Sasha inspires me to go on and be the best version of myself. Thank you so much for doing your thing, Sasha!

    Too bad she never lipsynched until the finals. I would've loved to watched her mow down those filler queens.

    Sasha is so glamorous and beautiful now. But, I truly miss the era of her paint captured here. It allowed her such a beautiful and powerful range of expression... I don’t feel like she’s fully able to convey such a state of sorrow as she once did. I know she is continuing to evolve, so I can only wait patiently to see that side of dear Sasha once again. 🥀

    Literally, my jaw dropped. I have never seen anything so unique and beautiful in my life, and if in S9 they can't appreciate that, I will be so disappointed. Sasha is a brand of uniqueness that no one has matched since ever, and this is the real future of drag. If they ever have a runway look for the future of drag again, the queens should just show up in Sasha impressions.

      Trob umm actually watching this I thought that she was trying to convey that her mind is so busy. All the different colours and animations that flash and really depict what the lyrics are saying that the person is broken and can't think straight. It IS art... also, there's already been queens using different modes of technology for their lipsyncs because of what she's shown you can do without deathdrops and with REAL emotion. Have a nice day.

      I agree, I feel like it's too much of an art project you see from a freshman in college, like "look how artistic I can be with a projector and if I add enough squiggly lines people can interpret it as art."

    I've never seen any other queen do what she does. She's one of a kind and in my perspective that makes her stand out ! #TeamSasha I love you already !❤❤❤❤ And its a shame that we in Brazil, where I live, dont have drag race on Tv . I mean her talent is unquestionable. Come to Brazil someday Sasha! We love you❤❤❤❤
