Season 15 of RuPaul’s Drag Race is headed to MTV — and baby, it shows.

Today, the network unveiled Drag Race’s upcoming season’s roster of special celebrity guest shows, and it’s clear that the mandate was icons only. As previously shared, the season’s two-episode premiere will feature pop diva Ariana Grande, who will help judge the queens showing of the “T” in charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent in a talent show. The premiere episode will air commercial-free, followed by a second episode with limited commercial interruption.

Grande is far from the only star to grace the judging panel. Special celebrity guest judges this time around will also include music, television, comedy and film icons Ali Wong, Amandla Stenberg, Harvey Guillen, Hayley Kiyoko, Julia Garner, Janelle Monáe, Maren Morris, Megan Stalter, and Orville Peck.

Also bringing her star power back to the judging panel is Ts Madison who is set to join as a rotating member of the judge’s panel. Veteran panelists Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, and Ross Mathews also return in their judging roles.

They are going to have their hands full with 16 competitors — the largest number of queens ever — vying for the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar” and a cash prize of $200,000 – the highest in herstory of the main franchise. And, ahem, judging by this season’s trailer, the cast is ready to bring it.

Season 15 will premiere on Friday, January 6 at 8:00 PM ET/PT on MTV. Watch the season 15 trailer below.
