every year she has a "home" show off Broadway where people sing reverse gender songs. It is to raise money for housing for teens thrown out of home for gender issues.

Okay... I'll bite. What is a "reverse gender song?"

A song normally sung by a female or male character sung by the opposite gender.

Example:
Songs typically sung by female characters:
I Feel Pretty
Not Getting Married Today
Cell Block Tango
Songs typically sung by Male characters:
And I Am Telling You
Popular
Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend

Check out YouTube for some videos of reverse gender songs, search Broadway Backwards.

I always think that picking songs like those is a smart move for American Idol / singing show contestants.

the judges do love some Victoria - she must be a master tailor because I thought her outfit was better fit for the space age episode. did not get what was so forward looking about it for your family history,which the judges noted but still included in the top looks. They seemed to like the fit. which does match with the men in the bottom having fit problems.

I cant stand Sergio. I think producers talked to him and told him he had to have Christian talk to him.

Many of the designers seem to dismiss Christian, he doesnt get the respect that they all gave Tim. I think Christian has some good critiques and they should listen

I was hoping he would save Savi, my heart broke for him.
Why oh why do designers pick fabric that may not hold up well, surely they know fabrics that are easy to work with

Yes, I’ve noticed many of the eliminated designers have had a fabric problem over a design problem. Sergios last two designs have been God awful and I think the only reason he stayed this time with the mullet dress was bc of his political message. PR is all about using the “Get Woke” message ad nauseum. I hated to see Shavi go,I was so hoping Christian would use his save.

Could part of the materials issue be because they have such a short time at Mood to find what they need? They are doing so much running around and pulling out bolts of fabric that they don't really have the time to think of how it would work for what they are creating.

I agree Lake, that is the only reason they kept him. That dress was hideous. I thought he would get called out for having models work on it. Hoped it was a violation

Having models help has never been a violation. Same with having other designers help.

Having someone else's model help seems like pushing it too far.

Victoria's head is going to explode soon.

The judges indeed seem to be obsessed with her.

First time I thought Christian might use his save..

I think Brittany's head is going to explode over her jealousy of Victoria.

Apologies, I made a mistake in my 1/13/2020. 12:56pm post. The songs I listed as typically played by males are in fact female character songs. I had been watching some of the reverse gender clips of men singing those songs and listed them incorrectly.

Songs typically sung by Male characters
C'est Moi
Agony
Luck Be A Lady
There Is Nothing Like A Dame

Maybe they never talk about him much because of how he died.

I thought Sergio's dress was absolutely hideous. No one wants to wear a dress with the names of dead people stitched into it - regardless of how they died. I'm also sick of the "get woke" message ad nauseum which has infested PR since it came back to Bravo last year.

I personally think Christian is a much better mentor than Tim. Christian hangs around the workroom to see how things are going even when he's not in "consult" with the designers. Tim was "in and out" of there. But, in full disclosure, Christian has always been one of my all-time favorite winners of PR. I think any designer that doesn't take advantage of Christian's advice is foolish.

Add me to the list of people that think Brittany's head is going to explode over Victoria. But according to the previews for next week, it looks like Victoria may not be in the top three.

I thought that Marquise would have been in the top 3instead of Victoria, I liked his better and it fit the challenge better. Devin is growing on me.

I was never a fan of Christian before but I have to say that I have been impressed with him on this season. I think what some of the contestants are forgetting is that not only has Christian won this competition before but he is one of the very few to succeed outside of the show. He knows how the fashion world is working today. He understands what the judges are looking for. Any designer who doesn't listen to him is living in their own private fantasy world.

That said, I expected Sergio to show us how great he really is but so far he has not.

Sooooo... I'm looking at the pictures of the contestants on top and I have one question.

Who the hell is Melanie?
