The 2022 outing of the WA leg of the competition will take place on On Saturday 25th of June when the Western Australia State Finalists will throw their sparkles into the ring and battle it out for the crown and title.

Ten Perth based burlesque artists Amelia Kisses, Autumn Daze, Chloe The Cocaine, Coco Fatale, Danisa Snake, Delza Skye, Foxxxy Curves, Lolly Moon, Matthew Pope and Miss Lady Lace will tantalise audiences at the Astor Theatre in Mt Lawley.
