Drag Queen Pandora Boxx Takes Over the Rock, Cracks Jokes at Bachelorettes, and Urges Crowd Not to Vote for Romney
Melissa Fossum Pandora Boxx
Drag is a great way for queens to embrace their inner divas, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. On Friday, August 24, Pandora Boxx performed in front of a sold out crowd at The Rock.
Boxx, the drag persona created by Michael Steck, didn't quite make it to the final round of RuPaul's Drag Race, but she did win Miss Congeniality by a landslide. Her hilarious and campy style translated well to her live performance. Check out the photo rundown in our Pandora Boxx at the Rock slideshow and read all about her performance after the jump ...

Local queens Pandora DeStrange, Olivia Gardens, and Peaches joined Pandora Boxx as a rotating cast of performers. DeStrange promptly took the stage sporting a fishnet bodysuit and a pink mohawk, as she sang along to "La Grange" and "Born to be Wild." It was quite a feat to see a drag queen actually sing, since most rely on lip syncing, wigs, and fabulous dance moves.
DeStrange's second song was a raunchy parody of The Little Mermaid's "Under the Sea." The chorus was changed to "get down on your knees," as the performer sang about buttholes, groping, and sucking.
Peaches also assumed the dubious task of singing. She did a fantastic job covering Amy Winehouse's "Valerie," while squeezing through the room and joking about how she was too big to fit through the tables in the packed bar. At the end of each performance, she collected her tips and thanked the crowd for helping her make this month's rent.
