Roscoe's Tavern Chicago Miss Roscoe's 2012 Kimberley Locke

Dec 18, 2012. Chicago. Rosco’s Tavern. Miss Rosco’s 2012 finals. After judging the queens, Kimberley Locke (‘American Idol’ season 2 finalist) closed out the night with a live performance.

On Tuesday, December 18, 2012, Roscoe’s Tavern wrapped up their own search for Chicago’s drag queens who could serve up their own “charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent,” as RuPaul puts it on his ever popular “RuPaul’s Drag Race” series, in the Miss Roscoe’s 2012 Drag Race finale.  The night was capped by FOX’s “American Idol” season 2 finalist Kimberley Locke who was a celebrity judge and featured performer.  Also judging and performing was The Princess from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” season 4 that airs on Logo and local celebrity Tammie Cobern rounded out the judge’s panel.  The fabulous Frida Lay hosted for her 12th consecutive year donning a sling from a recently broken shoulder, but that didn’t stop her from keeping the crowd on their feet…and taking jäger shots with her good hand. ;-)

There were six finalists: Brandi Wine, Beatrix Dixie, Alexis Bevels, Evah Envy, Gia Gunn, and Lindsay Bryant.  The competition was in 2 rounds with the 2011 reigning queen Sorraya Dash setting the bar each round with her own performance.  The first round was the queens winning performances from the semifinals, and the second round was a new performance of their choosing.  1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners were declared as well as a fan favorite, a new category this year, based on audience cheers.  In the end, Miss Roscoe’s 2011 Sorraya Dash handed over her thrown to Miss Roscoe’s 2012 winner Gia Gunn who also landed the Fan Favorite award.  Evah Envy placed a close 2nd, only losing the title by 2 points according to the judges scoring, and Beatrix Dixie took home 3rd.
