Christina Aguilera to Guest Judge ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Season 10 Premiere
Let's go girls: Xtina is strutting over to RuPaul's Drag Race!
On Thursday night (March 1), pop goddess Christina Aguilera revealed she'll be guest judging the season 10 opener of the VH1 hit reality competition show.
"It's showtime! Let's go girls," the "Beautiful" singer tweeted along with a snippet clip of her banging out a monumental high note, marking her announcement with the complimentary hashtag #DragRaceXtina.
The 37-year-old chanteuse is the first guest arbiter named for the tenth season of RuPaul's spectacular drag race series. Aguilera will carry the torch of fellow pop star Lady Gaga, who occupied a guest judge stint on the series' ninth season last year.
The upcoming season will boast a fresh cast of 14 drag race hopefuls, including contestants like Dusty Ray Bottoms, Miz Cracker, Yuhua Hamasaki, and returning performer Eureka O'Hara, who was removed from last year's competition due to medical concerns deriving from an athletic injury.
“While preparing for season 10, I realized that one of our contestants was 11 years old when we first launched Drag Race,” RuPaul spoke of the contenders for the upcoming season. “The fact that we’re still here and still going strong is because of our talented queens. They are the heart and soul of the series. And as they continue to evolve and push the boundaries of drag, so does Drag Race.”
RuPaul's Drag Race season 10 begins on Thursday, March 22, at 8 p.m. ET on VH1.
