So, Discovery released the Meet the Queens and a sneak peek of the first episode, which I don't know how to embed here, and... it all looks extremely well-made, if not potentially iconic? The production values, the theatre, the fashion, the camp, the limited Zorzi screen time, the queens being such FUCKING CLOWNS and the awkwardness of some of them speaking like they're mentally translating from English? WHAT!
The show is being heavily promoted on TV and the press alike, and seeing the adverts on the screen feels so surreal and EXCITING! We might be in for something big, at least at the national level. Not this sudden redemption narrative!
The song's translation is correct! It's the opening theme of the Italian dub of Cat's Eye, a staple of the rich anime offer on Italian commercial television, and the lyrics refer to the anime's plot, so they make sense in that context. Maybe it was clear from the episode but Cristina D'Avena owes her huge fame and icon status to the countless cartoon theme songs she sang.The drama during the “Untuck” was it that serious? Maybe something was lost in translation? But it seemed like the girls were giving drama for the sake of it.
The lip sync’s song Google translate lyrics, can someone do a better job? Or is it supposed to be vague?
Not sure how spoiler-friendly this thread is supposed to be but at least one of your wishes will come true! Not really a spoiler because the show has already self-spoiled it on Instagram but Tiziano Ferro will make a special appearance. Other big names will cameo or guest-judge as well, although they're legendary locally and unknown to the international audience. That's the trouble, many LGBTQ+ celebrities\allies\reference points who are beloved and cherished here are nobodies abroad while there are big names known internationally who we may see as has-beens, right-wingers, just not that iconic\too iconic for a gig on Discovery+ or a bad fit for a queer show. I'm glad the show has an unmistakable homegrown flavour though. I'm already shaking thinking of what the queens came up with for Snatch Game.I don't agree with the lipsync result, but it's Drag Race so I'm used to it. I'm gonna need at least one lipsync of each: Rita Pavone, Mina, Raffaella Carrà, brazilian icon Corona, Dalida, and I'm sure we're getting Laura sooner or later. Also wonder if it's remotely realistic to expect Myss Keta in any capacity (I'm not from Italy so I don't know how she's perceived). I wonder if Mika is showing up too.
