RuPaul Is Hosting An All-Star Holiday Special!!!
Every episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race is a gift, but RuPaul Is giving us the biggest gift of all to brighten up the holidays. The Gift... A Chance to get our RuPaul's Drag Race fix this December.
“Nothing says Christmas like ‘Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and drag queens slipping on their pantyhose,’” RuPaul says in a press release. “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 “RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular” will see the return of eight contestants from past seasons, including Eureka O’Hara, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, Sonique, and Trixie Mattel. They will vie for the title (and perhaps a picture frame in RuPaul’s Hall of Fame???) of America’s first “Drag Race Xmas Queen.”
The eight queens will compete in holiday-themed challenges, wear fa la la la la-filled fashions, and dance in musical numbers choreographed by Todrick Hall. The queens will also lip-sync to songs from RuPaul’s classic holiday collection, Slay Belles, and his new album, Christmas Party. (Available on iTunes.)
Get the eggnog, and gather ’round with loved ones to watch the RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular Friday, December 7, at 8/7c on VH1.
