Our first finale announcement is for our special guest judge… Beatrix Von Bourbon!
We asked Beatrix to give some advice for our contestants and here is what she had to say:
Q. What is the most important quality for a burlesque artist to have onstage?
A. Control. Both of her own movements and of her connection with the audience.
Q. What does it take for an act to shine in a competition format?
A. Originality, charisma, charm and a multi-dimensional act (something that engages people in a variety of ways - great costuming, narrative, skill displays etc).
Q.If you could give one piece of advice to the contestants what would it be?
A. Take pride in having reached the final. Use this moment to shine on stage and celebrate all your burlesque achievements so far.
