Club Bulletin July 2015 35 www.theEDexpo.com W ith its status secured as the most prestigious and selective feature dance contest in the U.S., ED Publications is excited to announce the winners of the EXOTIC DANCER Invitational (EDI) East. Once again, the industry's top feature entertainers, including the hottest newcomers and more established and successful "showgirl" features, competed for top honors, including an automatic nomination for the prestigious ED's Overall Entertainer of the Year Award and a chance to perform on stage at the Annual ED's Awards Show during the 2015 Gentlemen's Club EXPO in New Orleans. Held at the impressively remodeled Fantasies Nightclub in Baltimore, Maryland, the EDI East boasted three nights of competition in the Newcomer (May 28), Showgirl (May 29) and Champion (May 30) Divisions, with each night being a "final" in its own right. Natasha Nova outlasted the competition in the Newcomer Division with her alluring "Wonder Woman" routine, while "the force" was clearly with Lisa Licious during her Showgirl-Division-winning—and very entertaining—"Star Wars" set. In an extremely tightly contested Champion Division, Justice, Lacey Rain and Christina Aguchi each showcased exactly why they belonged in this elite division. But only one could win, and it was Christina Aguchi and her famed "Michael Jackson" routine that wowed the judges and helped her capture the EDI East Champion Division title. "It felt so amazing competing at the EDI East this year," says Christina. "Not only were my two competitiors two of the best in the industry, but my personal friends. I would like to thank them for continuing to better me, my performance and, most importantly, help better this industry every day. Until next time!" Scoring was incredibly tight between all three Champion Division competitors, as Justice led the night off with her sexy and entertaining "Marilyn Monroe" routine. That was followed by a raucous and, as always, insanely energetic performance by current ED's Entertainer of the Year, Lacey Rain. In the Newcomer Division, Liza Mae Lust scored big in her very first competition by taking home the First Runner-Up title with her adept "Ballerina" show, while Canadian Holly Hart (who drove all the way from Vancouver to Baltimore!) was Second Runner-Up and also earned the "Best Dancer" mini title for her "Mermaid" show. But Natasha Nova, a beautiful brunette, captured the "It felt amazing to compete at the EDI East. Not only were my two competitors two of the best in the industry, but my personal friends.
