It really was the ultimate drag experience as Precious Paula Nicole, Viñas Deluxe, and Brigiding proved why they are worthy of being called the Divine Divas.

One of the many joys of Drag Race Philippines was that it introduced us to local queens who deserve a stan. Such is a fact when it comes to the powerhouse trio that is Precious Paula Nicole, Viñas Deluxe, and Brigiding. Before the show, the trio already made a name for themselves as the Divine Divas in the local drag scene. But after the show, they became superstars as they took their act all over the country. From performing in drag bars, other intimate venues, and even on Instagram live, the Divas decided to take their act to the main stage by holding their very own concert at the Music Museum last February 10.
They brought the looks, moves, tricks, flips, and everything in between. It was a breakthrough moment for the local drag scene and the LGBTQIA+ community to see three drag queens headline a major concert venue in the country. And they deserve every moment of it. The show was billed as the ultimate drag experience, and true enough, that was what PPN, Viñas, Brigiding, and their famous friends gave. Here are just some of the standout moments from this event that was equal parts a concert and a celebration
BRIGIDING’S KABOGERA RUVEAL
Grabe yung sigawan talaga 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭#TheUltimateDragExperience #DivineDivasLive2023 #BrightestStar#Brigiding— sy 🐥 (@mydubiu) February 12, 2023
At this point, Amakabogera will follow Brigiding until the end of time. So, for the Ultimate Drag Experience, the seasoned queen decided to go all out for her solo performance of this Maymay Entrata hit. Hitting the stage in an opulent silver gown, Brigiding had a trick up her sleeve as the dress split into two once the beat hit. She then proceeded to own the song as if she released it herself.
LADY MORGANA STEALS THE SHOW

The Divine Divas were joined by some of their fellow queens during the show. And Lady Morgana undoubtedly was the breakout star of the night with her Christina Aguilera ballad. Dressed in a stunning white and silver gown, Lady Morgana delivered power, energy, and emotion that brought the house down and got her a standing ovation. It was a moving performance that deserved all the praise.
PRECIOUS PAULA NICOLE’S SIRENA 2.0

During the show, Precious recreated her winning lip sync performance and brought out all the stops as she evolved into her final form. First, she stunned in a sirena dress that looked like she was floating on water. Then, a large blue cloth came over her as Precious gagged the crowd with her golden outfit reveal. And if that wasn’t enough, her dancers moved her up and down the stage like she was riding a wave.
Because you three deserves a crown! #DivineDivasLive2023 #TheUltimateDragExperience @brigiding pic.twitter.com/nwaaJWdMwG— shara #DivineDivasLive2023 (@shara00_) February 12, 2023
While Precious Paula Nicole may have won the crown, Brigiding and Viñas are also winners in our book. Case and point, during the end of PPN’s Sirena performance, Precious pulled out two small crowns from the Drag Race PH crown so all three of them could wear crowns like the queens that they are. Their friendship is just so wholesome for words.

All three queens served with their solo performances, from Precious and her ballads to Viñas performing her debut song. But Brigiding really showed out for the night with her aerial performance ala P!nk. She was spinning in the air like it was nothing.

The night featured a star-studded crowd with Vice Ganda and JC Alcantara being among the crowd. But the concert also had special guest stars perform on stage. One of the most notable was Andrea Brillantes who had her solo stage dancing to Vogue by Madonna before being joined by Precious, Vinas, and Brigiding. Given how vocal of a Drag Race fan Andrea is, the moment probably was a dream come true for her.
