Trivia

  • 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's.[1]
      • ... 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.
