This past summer RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Michelle Visage was announced as one of the judges for the new series, Ireland’s Got Talent, the latest incarnation of the popular worldwide competition series.
The show is set to premiere in January 2018, so pics of the judges have finally be revealed, and we are happy to report that our favorite squirrel friend is looking fierce!
And we aren’t the only ones who think so. If you look at the comments of the Instagram image fans are gagging at Queen Michelle’s look.
Visage joins Denise Van Outen, Louis Walsh and Jason Byrne behind the judges table as they discover and critique Ireland’s most talented performers and singers.
“My favourite thing in the world are camp acts; the weirder they are, the better for me,” Visage said at TV3’s new season launch.
“Of course I love the kids, of course I love the animals – but I like when people think outside the box and just go for it, go crazy. That’s the stuff I love to see.”
Visage told the Irish Mirror how excited she was to relocate to Ireland, which she calls her “second home.”
“I love Ireland. Clearly I’m from here – you look at me and I’ve Irish blood,” she said.
“I try to live as locals do when I work in a country,” Visage explained. “I was on RTE [Radio and Television of Ireland] with Dusty Rhodes years ago but I don’t think anyone here remembers. So I did a lot of sightseeing when I came over, I’m talking in the 1990s.”
She did reveal how her paycheck for Ireland’s Got Talent won’t be quite as much as the one she receives for judging Drag Race, but she thinks “sometimes things are worth more than money.”
“I love Ireland and if I can help someone achieve their dream, that to me is worth more than money… They are paying me in potatoes. But I get to work with Louis Walsh, who is a really good friend.”
Ireland’s Got Talent, All Stars Season 3 and Drag Race Season 10? 2018 is the year of Visage and we are living for it.
