The Best Moments from Valentina’s Performance at Heat Night Club
Born James Andrew Leyva, California girl Valentina brought tears to the judges’ eyes when she dressed as Lady Gaga during her first challenge on the current season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The Los Angeles native’s winning strategy so far involves a look that’s equal parts old-school Hollywood glamour and modern telenovela starlet. Adding to the allure is the fact that she borrows her name from a popular Mexican hot sauce and claims the Virgen de Guadalupe is her drag mother. Although a relative newcomer to the world of drag, Valentina has proven herself as one of the most talented queens this season and a top contender for the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.” Here are some of the best moments from her performance at Heat Nightclub.
