April Showers

Having recently celebrated his fifth anniversary as April Showers, Tim Richards has channelled Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Kylie Minogue onstage, often at Reflections. “I love performing,” he says, despite the fact that the gist of his work isn’t always understood by the wider public. Showers once performed as Alanis Morissette, wearing nothing but a giant vagina, and “had an abortion on stage one time” that people, who saw the video of the show, found unsettling. But, then, that’s what great art does: unsettle. In November Kylie will have a new album in stores, called X . Expect April Showers’ Kylie show to remount at Reflections at around the same time.

First runner up: Rouge Fatale

Second runner up: (The late, great) Lulu LaRude
