Drag Idol?

I started this blog with the idea that some talented and beautiful cover gurlz could join together and form a gurl group. Over the years, I've highlighted some gurl groups that now entertain audiences worldwide.

Perhaps it is time to change the theme? Or at least think about additional possibilities?

How about a version of American Idol featuring cover gurlz? Week-to-week, talented singers would sing songs and compete as they do on the popular television series. Most of the singers I've blogged about here would make great contestants.

For instance, though most famous as a Britney Spears impersonator (primarily as a dancer and look-a-like), Derrick Barry has been singing live for a number of years now. Here's a cover of "Ooh La La" from August 2013:

Singer: Vice Ganda

Vice Ganda is a popular entertainer in the Philippines -- comic, singer, actor, host, etc. Vice is a multi-talented star.

As a singer, Vice has the potential to be a terrific member of the Cover Gurlz. Here's a video of the star singing in a feminine voice (Vice also sings male parts):

Vice commonly sings while dressed like a Cover Gurl, though not every word is English.

Now, look here to see some terrific pics of Vice looking like a fashion model or pop superstar. I'm going to include a few from Flickr, but several of those linked photos from a recent concert are far superior.

OK, one more video of Vice spoofing beauty pageants with a tall model from Texas, Georgina Wilson.
