Hot on the heels of its Drag Wars season finals, Azucar Nightclub launched a new weekly competition last week on Thursday night called "Azucar's Got Talent," a talent show on the scale of "America's Got Talent," only with drag queens and more.
The contest is open to all acts, not just drag queens, such as musicians, singers, dancers, etc. Audience applause will dictate the winner every week. Contestants will compete for a $100 cash prize.
Legendary drag queen TP Lords, who will serve as emcee, said for the new Thursday contest, she and Azucar owners and management staff wanted to include everyone.
"This contest is not only for drag queens but for anyone who has talent...men, women, drag queens," Lords wrote on Facebook, soliciting contestants. "Do you play an instrument? Do you have a special talent? Do you sing? Do you dance? Well, this is your chance to make some money, get all of your friends to come out and support you. The winner is chosen by audience applause."
Angel Hernandez on Facebook wrote: "Wonderful concept and way to show inclusion of everyone. You go, TP!"
Lords encourages anyone with a talent to share and post the event on their social media and promote themselves as a contestant to help their chances of winning.
"Who's coming to compete? I'll be waiting," Lords said.
Efrain Robinson Reyes will be promoting "Azucar's Got Talent" every week. Entrance is $5 for everyone all night long. Message him on Facebook for a chance to get on the guest list for free entrance.
"Save your $5 by hitting me up," Reyes said.
