Welcome to the Exotic Dancer Invitationals!

Produced by ED (Exotic Dancer) Publications and established in 2014, the EDI (EXOTIC DANCER Invitational) contests—EDI East and EDI West—will showcase the best of the best in the exotic showgirls arena. These entertainers are honored each year with the presentation of EXOTIC DANCER’s “Overall Entertainer of the Year” Award at the Annual ED’s Awards Show during the Gentlemen’s Club EXPO (the 2016 EXPO will be held in New Orleans, August 7-10). In order to enhance the prestige of this National Award and to insure that the most qualified applicants all have a shot at the title, ED Publications has launched the Annual EXOTIC DANCER Invitationals. The winner of each EDI (East and West) contest’s “Champion” Division will be automatic nominees for the “Overall Entertainer of the Year” Award; the winner of each EDI contest's "Showgirl" Division will be automatic nominees for the "Club Favorite Entertainer of the Year" Award, while the winners of the “Newcomer” Division will be nominees for the ED’s “Newcomer of the Year” Award.

April 29, Clearwater, FL: The stakes—and performances—escalated substantially at the 3rd Annual EDI (EXOTIC DANCER Invitational) West, held April 21-23 at Scores Presents Platinum 84 in Denver. With a packed lineup of competing entertainers, including eight in the Newcomer Division, nine in the Showgirl Division and four in the Champion Division, the EDI contest has become the preeminent “showgirl” dance competition in the U.S. 

At the end of the three-evening event, three girls reigned above the rest. Liza Mae Lust outlasted the competition to take the Newcomer Division title, Natasha Nova beat out an incredibly competitive Showgirl Division to capture that title, while Lacey Rain gained an automatic ED’s “Overall Entertainer of the Year” nomination with an impressive victory in the prestigious Champion Division. All three entertainers received crowns, trophies and cash prizes.

“The shows at the EDI contests keep getting better and better, and the competition gets even stiffer each year,” says EDI Producer & Founder, Dave Manack. Manack is also the Associate Publisher of ED Publications. “Lacey Rain’s set was more like live theater than it was a feature entertainer show; it was both unique and highly ambitious. All of the girls brought something to the contest that made it our best EDI yet, and we sincerely appreciate the time and effort they put into their competition performances.”

Runner-Ups in each category included Roxi D’Lite, Champion Division First Runner-Up; Angel Beau and Jaded Dawn, First and Second Runner-Up in the Showgirl Division; and Juliette Electrique and Cherry Poppins, First And Second Runner-Up in the Newcomer Division

Mini-Titles were also awarded to the following contestants: Best Dancer: Aria Moon; Most Original Show: Viva La Muerte; Hottest Body: Simone Danalustrous; Best Overall Show: Roxi D’Lite; Audience Favorite: Simone Danalustrous; Best Costume: Chelsea La Vone; Most Extreme Show: Angel Beau; Most Ambitious Show: Lacey Rain

“Scores Presents Platinum 84 could not possibly have been a better host club,” says Manack. “They even provided special guest Ron Jeremy, who garnered a great deal of attention from male and female customers alike! The club rolled out the red carpet for the EDI West, and we certainly appreciated their hospitality.”

EDI West competing entertainers also included: Justice, Arabella Allure, Holly Hart, Lady Sirene, BJ McNaughty, Claudia Rylie, Jenevieve Hexxx, Reagan Reilly and Victoria Drive
