The veil will be lifted with a series of videos starring this year’s contenders, introduced by Drag Race favorites Katya, Ginger Minj, Shangela and Ivy Winters at Aspen Gay Ski Week.
“This season’s queens are the most twisted yet,” declared RuPaul. “I fell in love with them the first moment we met, and I can’t wait to unleash these crazy and talented bitches onto the world.”
Logo also announced that Grammy nominee Meghan Trainor will perform during the show, where she’ll be joined by out pop star Who Is Fancy.
“I’ve always wanted to go to a Logo awards show,” said Trainor, who follows in the footsteps of Lady Gaga, who made her first television appearance at the NNN Awards in 2008.
“Not only do I get to attend and perform,” says the “Lips are Movin'” singer, “but I get to show my support for the LGBT community, who have always showed me so much love!”
Last year, Drag Race received its first Emmy nomination and helped Logo reach the highest ratings in its history. This year we can expect even more insane challenges, celebrity judges and more than a few surprises. Get ready, squirrelfriends!
