- Since All Stars 2, The Variety Show has been present as the first Main Challenge in All Stars seasons.
- The shows are filmed 2 times in order to get better shots of the queens' performances.
- In All Stars 2, Coco Montrese planned to do a Janet Jackson number and impersonation, but due to copyright issues, she had to change her performance to the one that aired.
- In All Stars 3, Aja had to use her long white heels because while practicing her show, her knee bled and stained her outfit.
- Besides, she wanted to use a higher platform to perform her final dip/death drop in her act but couldn't, as Kennedy needed that height for her routine.
- In All Stars 4, Farrah Moan suffered inconvenience in both of her shoots. In the first take (the aired one), she tripped on her first outfit; in the second one, she stormed off in the middle of her performance and went off of the stage.
- In All Stars 5...
- ... the performance that was not filmed twice was Mariah Paris Balenciaga's.
- ... Jujubee sung her song along with the recorded version of it.
- ... Blair had back vocals in her song but it only aired her acapella version.
- ...it was the first time a Burlesque performance didn't show up on the Variety Show.
- Roxxxy Andrews and BenDeLaCreme both did Burlesque as their talent for the Variety Show and won, while Farrah Moan did it but ended up in the bottom 2 and Scarlet Envy did a bubble variation as well and she placed safe in All Stars 6.
- In All Stars 2, the queens' performances (except for Alaska's) were aired in alphabetical order. It is thus far the only Variety Show to have done this.
- Ginger Minj, Jujubee and Mo Heart are the only three queens to participate in two variety shows.
- All Stars 7 is the first Season of All Stars since the introduction of the Variety Show to not feature the challenge in the premiere.
