We’re So Ready for RuPaul’s “Holi-slay” Spectacular

What better way to kick off the holiday season than with “RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular?”

VH1 recently announced that this holiday will bring back franchise favorites including Eureka O’Hara, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, Sonique, and Trixie Mattel as they compete for the title of America’s first “Drag Race Xmas Queen.”

“Nothing says Christmas like ‘Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and drag queens slipping on their pantyhose,'”host and EP RuPaul said. “Celebrating the holidays with my most festive girls inspired me to record my new album, ‘Christmas Party.’ And this VH1 holiday extravaganza is my way of saying thank you to my ‘Drag Race’ family by spreading a little bit of love, laughter and light across the country and around the world.”

The eight queens will return for an extraordinary holiday-themed episode filled with jaw-dropping surprises, fashions and epic performances choreographed by Todrick Hall. The queens will be dancing and lip-syncing to original holiday music from two RuPaul holiday albums, the classic “Slay Belles” and the new album, “Christmas Party.”  Michelle Visage, Ross Mathews and Todrick Hall will join RuPaul on the judging panel to help crown America’s first “Drag Race Christmas Queen.”

“RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular” will premiere on Friday, Dec. 7 at 8 p.m. This announcement was shortly after the announcements of the cast and judge panel for the 4th season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.”

Competitors include: Farrah Moan (season 9), Gia Gunn (season 6), Jasmine Masters (season 7), Latrice Royale (season 4), Manila Luzon (season 3), Monique Heart (season 10), Naomi Smalls (season 8), Trinity Taylor (season 9) and Valentina (Season 9).
