imageAfter weeks of heated competition, Friday’s April Fools Gold Rush Finale of the Raw Talent 2011 elimination competition at My Sisters’ Room pit the Top Two lady killers in a battle for the crown.

Romeo Lee and Laiden Stone bested a fierce field of princes before the showdown to find the male impersonator who would be king. With an audience full of rowdy fans belting back drink specials, Romeo ultimately squeaked out the win. For his efforts, he took home the bragging rights as well as a $1,000 prize.

The ladies and gents in the crowd gathered their favorite peeps to cheer on the show hosted by TiffNay and Shaun Daniels. They also enjoyed a guest performance by queen fave Taisha, as well as beats by DJ Melody (bottom photo).

Next up at My Sisters’ Room, singer-songwriter Lindsey Hinkle woos the crowd with her sultry siren song on Friday, April 8.
