The 48-year-old Puerto Rican superstar will serve as a guest judge on the fifth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.
The “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer kick things off as a guest judge for the premiere episode of the reality drag race competition, which will premiere on Friday, June 5 at 8:oo pm ET/PT on VH1.
In addition to Martin, the star-studded lineup of guest judges includes Tessa Thompson, Jane Krakowski, Nicole Byer, Bebe Rexha, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Sam Richardson, Madison Beer, Sarah Hyland, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Tommy Dorfman and Drag Race regular Todrick Hall.
In the premiere, Martin will help judge the all-star queens from seasons’ past as they take part in a reading mini-challenge and hit the runway for a “Werq the World” variety extravaganza.
T fifth season has thrown the traditional elimination rules out the window. RuPaul has shaken things up and has “Ru-vealed” that each week she’ll name a top all-star and that queen will lip sync for her legacy against a mysterious lip sync assassin, chosen from the most iconic performers in Drag Race“herstory.”
If the top all-star of the week wins the lip sync, she wins a $10,000 tip and the power to eliminate the bottom queen of her choice.
If the lip sync assassin wins, a bottom queen selected from a secret group vote gets the chop, and the money rolls over until a top all-star wins.
The 10 queens competing for a spot in the “Drag Race Hall of Fame” and a grand prize of $100,000 are Alexis Mateo (Season 3, All Stars 1), Blair St. Clair (Season 10), Derrick Barry (Season 8), India Ferrah (Season 3), Jujubee (Season 2, All Stars 1), Mariah Paris Balenciaga (Season 3), Mayhem Miller (Season 10), Miz Cracker (Season 10), Ongina (Season 1) and Shea Couleé (Season 9).
The 30-year-old Puerto Rican politician and activist and the U.S. Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district (D-NY)will serve as a guest judge for the 12th season of VH1’s hit reality television show RuPaul’s Drag Race.
AOC, as she’s popularly known, fits in with the political theme of this season of the series, which will see RuPaul reigning over the “Ru-nited States of America.”
In the trailer with Ocasio-Cortez, RuPaul declares that “the time has come for the first drag queen president.”
AOC is shown in the trailer pledging her devotion to the catchphrase of the season: “Join the Ru-volution,” she says. “I’m Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and I pledge allegiance to the drag.”
In a tweet, AOC said her appearance was “a peak experience.”
Others guest judge this season include Nicki Minaj, Leslie Jones, Jeff Goldblum,Whoopi Goldberg, Chaka Khan, Daisy Ridley, Robyn, Normani, Thandie Newton, Olivia Munn, Rachel Bloom, Daniel Franzese, Jonathan Bennett and Winnie Harlow.
The 13 queens competing for the coveted title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar” and a $100,000 prize include three Latinx contestants… Crystal Methyd (Springfield, MO), Dahlia Sin (Los Angeles, CA) and Jan (New York, NY).
The other contestants are Aiden Zhane (Acworth, GA), Brita (New York, NY), Gigi Goode (Los Angeles, CA), Heidi N Closet (Ramseur, NC), Jackie Cox (New York, NY), Jaida Essence Hall (Milwaukee, WI), Nicky Doll (New York, NY), Rock M.

The 51-year-old Mexican singer-songwriter has released the music video for her latest single “Yo Soy Su Vida,” with Trevi at the center of a scandalous love triangle featuring RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Valentina.
Sex and intrigue are served up alongside the dramatic power ballad as Trevi lusts after someone who isn’t her husband. She pines for another and pores over text messages as her husband dotes on her in the lavish home they, but she eventually she ditches their lifestyle of the rich and famous for the club — and that’s where she finds Valentina waiting for her.
Eventually, Trevi’s husband finds out where she is and interrupts their rendezvous, which leads to a moment on the sidewalk in front of the club where she’s being literally pushed and pulled between her husband and Valentina.
Cynthia Lee Fontaine is ready to lip sync for her tierra…
The 36-year-old Puerto Rican drag performer and former RuPaul’s Drag Racecontestant, whose real name is Carlos Hernandez, is set to perform at a drag benefit to raise funds for Puerto Rico.
Last month, fellow Drag Racestar Phi Phi O’Hara announced the Hurricane Maria relief show, titled Queens United/ Reinas Unidas. Along with Fontaine, who competed on seasons eight and nine of Drag Race, the show will feature more than 25 queens of Drag Racefame, and will take place November 6 at First Avenue in Minneapolis.
Other Latina drag performers set to perform include Jade Sotomayor, Naysha Lopez and Yara Sofia.
Billboard will host an exclusive live stream from the show on its Billboard Pride Facebook page.
All proceeds from the show — tickets, meets and greets and merch sales — will go to Somos Una Voz, a relief initiative started by Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. The foundation is rushing food, shelter, medicine, power and means of communication to Puerto Ricans in need after the island’s devastating natural disasters.
The full lineup includes: Acid Betty, Alexis Michelle, Bebe Zahara Benet, Bob the Drag Queen, Chad Michaels, Cynthia Lee Fontaine, Ginger Minj, Jade Jolie, Jade Sotomayor, Jaidynn Diore Fierce, Jessica Wild, Jiggly Caliente, Kandy Ho, Katya, Kimora Blac, Madame LaQueer, Manila Luzon, Mariah Paris Balenciaga, Max, Milk, Mrs. Kasha Davis, Katya, Mystique Summers, Naysha Lopez, Ongina, Pandora Boxx, Phi Phi O’Hara, Phoenix, Trinity k. Bonet and Yara Sofia.
The show is sponsored by Flip Phone MSP, and O’Hara has launched a crowdfunding page as well.
The Mexican American actress has joined the cast of the Anne Fletcher-helmed pageant musical comedy film Dumplin.
Kristin Hahn wrote the screenplay, which based on Julie Murphy’s 2015 YA novel of the same title. It follows Willowdean (Danielle Macdonald), nicknamed Dumplin, a confident, plus-sized teen who, to spite her beauty pageant queen mom (Jennifer Aniston), enlists in a local pageant. What starts as an impulsive one-day protest snowballs as Will inadvertently becomes the inspiration for a ragtag group of teenage outcasts joining the pageant.
Liv and Maddie alum Dove Cameron, Luke Benward, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Maddie Baillio, Odeya Rush and Ginger Minj (RuPaul’s Drag Race) also star.
Del Rio’s Rolodex Of Hate Comedy Special: Live From Austin will premiere this winter exclusively on Vimeo On Demand.
Del Rio is executive producing her Rolodex of Hate Comedy Special alongside David Charpentier and Jacob Slane for Producer Entertainment Group.
Del Rio, the first Hispanic winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, remains the only contestant in the history of the series to make it through the entire competition without ever placing low or in the bottom of a challenge.
The 33-year-old half-Mexican American actress will serve as a celebrity guest judge on the seventh season of Logo TV’s hit reality television competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race.
RuPaul plays the roles of host, mentor, and source of inspiration for the series, which details RuPaul’s search for “America’s next drag superstar.”
Alba has previously served as a guest judge on Cupcake Wars and Project Runway.
In addition to Alba, this season’s celebrity guest judges include Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, John Waters, Kathy Griffin, Olivia Newton-John, Alyssa Milano, Kat Dennings, Jordin Sparks, Mel B, Tamar Braxton, Rebecca Romijn, Santino Rice, Isaac Mizrahi, Michael Urie, Rachael Harris, Lucian Piane and Merle Ginsberg.
RuPaul’s Drag Race is also adding two new permanent judges to the mix. Carson Kressley (Queer Eye For The Straight Guy) and Ross Mathews (Chelsea Lately) will join returning judge Michelle Visage as they decide who will stay, lip-synch for their life or “Sashay Away.”
RuPaul’s Drag Race is slated to premiere at 9:00 pm ET on March 2 on Logo TV.
The 38-year-old Cuban and Honduran American drag queen has been named the Season 6 winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Del Rio, born Roy Haylock, beat out Adore Delano and Courtney Act for the title.
“Bianca is my kind of entertainer,” RuPaulsaid in a statement. “She is totally fearless, bust-a-gut hilarious, and yet she’s still managed to touch the hearts of Drag Race fans around the world.”
Del Rio posted a picture on Facebookfollowing her win with the hashtags #amazinglife, #thankyoueveryone and #honored.
“I feel like I am the luckiest entertainer in the world right now,” she said during the finale. “It’s an incredibly rewarding experience to have this honor, and I’m proof that anything is possible.”
BenDeLaCreme, who finished fifth, won the Miss Congeniality award, as voted on by fans. The finale also included a surprise wedding between sixth-place finisher Joslyn Fox and her fiancé Andre, which was officiated by RuPaul.
Bianca also got a congratulatory message from Judge Judy, whom she channeled in an early round of competition.
Before appearing on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Del Riowas a fixture in the New Orleans and New York City club scenes, often working with Lady Bunny.
