And the New 2012 Reigning Queen of Burlesque is...

On June 3, 2012 the new Queen was congratulated by Imodesty Blaize of London (Europe's Top
Showgirl, Best Debut BHOF 2006, Miss Exotic World 2007 ), with this online Twitter post
(syc): Congrats Imogen Kelly for winning Reigning Queen 2012! Worked with her in '04- innovative,
unique, and old school too. Love her! X #BHOF12 .
Sunday night I spoke briefly with the new Queen of Burlesque to ask about her plans for her
reigning year. I wanted to know how she planned to handle the year of duties as the new Queen,
like the Queen's Tour, here in the states? She told me: "We are talking about spending a year in
the States." When asked what has been the best part of performing here at BHOF12? Imogen
Kelly said "The dressing room was amazing, thanks to Coco Lectric."
