Our favorite squirrel friend will be hosting the show, and we can’t wait!

This year, Michelle will have her very own show, Michelle Visage: Get Off Your Ass coming soon to BBC Three and WOW Presents Plus!
It’s no secret that YouTube superstar, Tyler Oakley, is a fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race. He’s been a guest on the show (season 10, to be exact), made an appearance on RuPaul Drives, has had an impressive lineup of queens transform him in drag on his channel, and recently released a vlog about RuPaul’s Drag Race Live. This internet sensation is one of the top YouTubers and has been part of Forbes‘ 30 Under 30 list. He’s co-hosting the show with Michelle Visage!
Shoshana Bean’s three independent solo albums have all topped the iTunes R&B and Blues charts in the U.S. and U.K., and her most recent project, SPECTRUM, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Jazz charts. She has sold out solo concerts around the globe, lent her voice to countless ﬁlms and television shows, amassed millions of views on YouTube, and performed alongside Ariana Grande, David Foster, Brian McKnight, and Michael Jackson. She’s a veteran of the Broadway stage, having made her debut in Hairspray, Wicked, and Waitress, and Beaches.
The talented Todrick is a singer, songwriter, dancer, actor, choreographer, playwright, costume designer, Broadway performer, American Idol finalist, star of his own self-titled MTV Show, and viral YouTube sensation with over 2 million subscribers and 400 million views. You have seen him on RuPaul’s Drag Race as a guest judge and as a choreographer to the queens. His music videos give us life!
Troye Sivan is a superstar. He’s done it all, from being a YouTube vlogger, to a pop icon, to a model for Yves Saint Laurent at Paris Fashion Week, to sjudge on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Recently, he released the new song “Take Yourself Home” which has been a quarantine bop!
TUCKER has written and performed his songs all over NYC and LA on shows like Saturday Night Live and The Today Show, where he backed up the legendary Carole King. In addition to writing songs for other artists, he is currently hard at work on his own recorded artist project, and will be performing an original piece tomorrow.
VINCINT is on the rise. This Los Angeles-based pop vocalist has a voice like no other and has been praised by Charlie Walk, Diddy, DJ Khaled, and Meghan Trainor. “I’m a little strange in the sense that it never dawned on me that who I was or that being an outsider was strange,” VINCINT said to Billboard. “I just thought who I was was fine. Of course we all live in a world where we are constantly being told that who we are is wrong and the way we live is bad. I just brush it off my shoulder because I think it’s bullshit.”
