To say that Covid-19 has ruined a lot of plans for people would be quite an understatement. For 35-year-old Reggie DeVore, it certainly brought his momentum to a standstill. The rapper, who performs under the name BlackLight went on to open for Katy Perry and Dua Lipa in India in 2019, only for his career to come to a screeching halt. While he continues producing music, he hasn't been doing so for himself, which seems to have greatly affected his self-confidence.

Luckily, he has a fantastic support system -- his wife and manager Sasha and his son, Little Reggie. They both nominated him in hope that Tan France, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness and Bobby Berk can help Reggie find his self-confidence before an upcoming gig.

Sasha booked Reggie to play at the Empire, a venue he's always wanted to perform at. However, Reggie explained that he had been reconsidering his own career and was doubting if this is what he should be doing in the first place.

What did the Fab Five do for Reggie?

Tan helped Reggie with a more signature look for BlackLight to help him find his style as an artist. Reggie previously had a bad experience with his last haircut, so JVN was particular about keeping his length while refreshing his look. Antonio, who discovered that Little Reggie was actually the house's chef, taught the father-son duo how to roast a fillet mignon. Reggie made it known that their family was big on nurturing talent, and the fact that Little Reggie found something he loved was immensely celebrated. So when it came to Karamo talking to him about his confidence, he explained that it was important for Reggie to be true to his passion. Karamo noted that Reggie's mindset of hard work getting him nowhere or setbacks might rub off on his kids, which he needed to address. And finally, as always, Bobby gave the DeVore home a much-needed update, complete with an updated studio for Reggie to make more music.
