Spare the rod, spoil the child? Not when it comes to Sing For Your Life, the queer-inclusive singing competition. The panel of judges showed again Thursday that they spare nothing in their critiques of the remaining 11 singers.

Week 2 of performances — with the Top 11 taking on a divas-inspired theme — unfolded at Jungle with judges that included SFYL creators Barry Brandon, JL Rodriguez and Michael Robinson along with ice princess and Atlanta Pride fave Eryn Woods. Matty Barbato and Sarah Peavy landed in the bottom two, and in a surprise, no one was cut from the competition this week.

Sing For Your Life hosted live auditions last month before announcing a cast of 12 performers during Bedlam’s Glitter & Fur Party on New Year’s Eve. Then it got real: Elliot Alexzander was cut during the opening round of competition on Jan. 10. The Top 10 take the stage again for another cut in the Billboard Top 40 Challenge on Jan. 24.
