Akeria C. Davenport Reacts to Silky’s Lipsync, Reveals Why She Left
Why didn't the queen participate in RuPaul's Drag Race's epic game-within-a-game?
Last night, RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 6 finally revealed the game-within-a-game they've been teasing all season long: a lip-sync battle royale between all of the eliminated girls.
Silky Nutmeg Ganache fought her way to the top, winning 6 lip-syncs and making it to the final round with Eureka O'Hara, but one lip-sync was noticeably different than the others. When Akeria C. Davenport had the chance to fight for her return to the competition, she turned it down, and that decision led to one of the most iconic moments in Drag Race herstory. Ganache performed Aqua's "Barbie Girl" by herself, as both Ken and Barbie, and left everyone howling with laughter.
Following the performance, Davenport has since explained why she chose to "bow gracefully" out of the competition. She simply felt like her time is done. "I could actually leave feeling like I presented how I wanted the world to see as Akeria," she told Michelle Visage in a new clip from Whatcha Packin the show posted on Instagram.
And after watching the lip=sync on TV with the rest of us, Davenport had some words for Ganache's outrageous lipsync. "Bitch I would have just stopped and laughed at her lol," she tweeted.

Legends supporting legends! We love to see it.
We don't yet know if Ganache has secured a spot back in the competition (we'll find out next week) but it was damn sure fun to watch her fight.
