RuPaul will put the Ho Ho Ho this holiday season with a festive spectacular special airing December 7. VH1 just shared an extended look at the must-see event.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular brings back franchise favorites to compete for the title of America’s first “Drag Race Xmas Queen.” The eight queens competing are Eureka O’Hara, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, Sonique, and Trixie Mattel. They return for an extraordinary holiday-themed episode filled with jaw-dropping surprises, eye-popping fashions, and epic performances choreographed by Todrick Hall.
The queens will also 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 the inaugural holiday 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.”
