Eight queens a-singing in “RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular”
“RuPaul’s Drag Race” is getting the mistletoe ready in the workroom by announcing a new 60-minute special to premiere on December 7.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular” on VH1 will gather 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.”
The episode promises to contain "jaw-dropping surprises, eye-popping 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.”
"Nothing says Christmas like ‘Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and drag queens slipping on their pantyhose,'" said three-time Emmy® Award-winning host and EP RuPaul. "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.”
“RuPaul’s Drag Race” made entertainment history as the first series to win both Outstanding Host of a Reality Competition Program and Outstanding Reality-Competition Program Emmys in the same year
Both season 11 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and season 4 of “All Stars” were previously greenlit by VH1.
RuPaul’s holiday albums “Christmas Party” and “Slay Belles” are available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Music.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular” premieres on VH1 on December 7 at 8:00 PM ET/PT.
