Legendary is a captivating reality competition series that streams exclusively on HBO Max. The show, which made its debut in 2020, draws inspiration from the ballroom scene, a subculture that originated in the African-American and Latino LGBTQ community. Legendary is an intriguing and entertaining ode to the dance and fashion elements of the ballroom culture.

The show features eight voguing houses, each made up of four voguers and one legend. Voguing is a highly stylized dance form that serves as the main thread throughout Legendary. Throughout the season, the houses compete against one another in themed balls, with challenges such as "Circus," "Club Kid Couture," and "Fairytale Fantasy." The ultimate prize is the Grand Prize, worth $100,000.

Notably, Legendary is hosted by Dashaun Wesley, who is both an experienced dancer and a star of the ballroom scene. Wesley's magnetic personality is an integral part of the show's appeal. Alongside Wesley, Legendary also features three judges, each with significant experience in fashion, dance, and entertainment.

The first judge is the fashion guru, Law Roach, a stylist with celebrity clientele, including Zendaya and Celine Dion. Roach is a prominent figure in the fashion industry and has been featured on numerous best-dressed lists. His knowledge and expertise in fashion add value to the show.

The second judge is the skilled choreographer and dancer, Leiomy Maldonado. Maldonado is the first transgender woman to compete on America's Best Dance Crew and has been called the "Wonder Woman of Vogue" for her contributions to the art form. Her voguing skills are a sight to behold, and her experience in the ballroom scene gives her credibility as a judge.

The third judge is a rotating guest judge format, which has featured a diverse pool of celebrity judges, including rapper Megan Thee Stallion, actor Jameela Jamil, and supermodel Naomi Campbell. Their perspectives bring a fresh energy to the show and keep the competition exciting.

Legendary's unique blend of high-energy dance routines and theatrical fashion elements is a winning combination. The voguing performances are a standout feature of the show, with the houses showcasing their skill, precision, and creativity in each routine. The costumes and makeup are equally impressive, with the house members competing in fabulous, over-the-top outfits that complement their voguing.

The challenges go beyond dance and fashion, with the house members representing their respective houses' culture and values. Each house adds their unique flair and creativity to elevate their performances, creating an unforgettable visual experience. The competition can be intense, with high stakes and the possibility of elimination each episode.

However, the show also shines a spotlight on the ballroom scene's diversity and inclusivity, breaking down stereotypes and highlighting the resilience of the LGBTQ community. Legendary is a celebration of identity, expression, and artistry.

In conclusion, Legendary is a must-watch for anyone interested in dance, fashion, and the LGBTQ community. The show's blend of creativity, talent, and competition makes it a standout in the reality TV genre. Wesley, Roach, and Maldonado, along with the guest judges, are a dynamic and entertaining team, delivering insightful feedback to the competitors while also keeping the atmosphere light and fun. With its high-energy performances and inspiring moments, Legendary is an empowering and captivating show that leaves a lasting impression.

Legendary is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (29 episodes). The series first aired on May 27, 2020.
