Alba Parietti is back on TV with a drag queen contest: this is how her new show “I’m not a lady” works

While the TV is closed for holidays, the big and small maneuvers for the next season continue. The games are far from closed, there are several pawns to be placed (and in Rai others will inevitably be blown up or will be rearranged after the political elections of 25 September) and therefore it is not surprising that a few days before Ferragosto Davide Maggio’s blog you shoot an unexpected news: the return to the management of Alba Parietti, ready to land on Rai2 in prime time from November.

ALBA PARIETTI BACK ON TV WITH A RACE BETWEEN DRAG QUEEN – After grinding thousands of hours as a guest, regular and interviewed columnist, Alba Parietti is back on TV with a leading role and not as a follower: she will in fact be the presenter of I’m not a lady, the new Rai2 program on air from 7 November to 5 December next. “So he returns to the coveted conduct of a show all of him and, God willing, we will no longer see various kinds of complaints about the non-return of Grimilde, last major television engagement of the Turin columnist ”, scratches Davide Maggio anticipating the news. The format, a kind of RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race mixed with The masked singer, includes a competition between VIPs who will drop for one evening in the role of drag queen. And it makes you smile to rethink the little one “Road accident”Which had Parietti as its protagonist: during an episode of Secret song, Marcella Bella (protagonist of a surprise) did not recognize her friend Alba who went on stage disguised as a drag queen with Karma B. “Who is this beautiful lady?”, She asked after approaching. “I’m Alba Parietti”, she replied, laughing amused.

THE MECHANISM OF I’M NOT A LADY – Even in Rai, therefore, the curtain rises on the performing art of drag queens, between great entertainment and inclusiveness, cleared by the worldwide success of the iconic RuPaul’s Drag Race. But Qwhat is the mechanism of I’m not a lady? Aided by a team of make-up and styling experts, a group of famous people will get involved by taking on the role of splendid drag and making themselves unrecognizable. In each episode they will compete in spectacular performances and while the jury made up of professional drag players will decide the winner, a panel of opinion leaders will try to guess who is the character who is performing. The winning drag of each episode will access the final, while the others will only have to reveal themselves and tell their own transformation path.
