Courtney Love is going to be a Drag Race guest judge

The big Ruveal sees Shania Twain, Ashanti, Halsey, and more on season 10

RuPaul’s Drag Race has announced a slew of new judges for season 10 – Courtney Love, Shania Twain, Halsey, Ashanti and more. 

Fourteen queens will compete in the landmark tenth series of the hit show, premiering March 22 on VH1. All-Stars 3 continues, with the season finale set for March 15.

As Billboard reports, Christina Aguilera had previously been announced as an upcoming guest judge. The full roster includes Shania Twain, Courtney Love, Halsey, Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer, Lena Dunham, Kate Upton, Billy Eichner, Audra McDonald, Logan Browning (Dear White People), Andrew Rannells, Tisha Campbell-Martin (My Wife and Kids), Ashanti, Todrick Hall, Lizzo, Kumail Nanjiani, Emily V. Gordon, Padma Lakshmi, Nico Tortorella (Younger), Miles Heizer (13 Reasons Why), and Carrie Preston (The Good Wife). 

recent interview with RuPaul in the Guardian caused major backlash, where he said he would “probably not” let a trans woman compete on the show. “You can identify as a woman and say you’re transitioning, but it changes once you start changing your body,” he said. 

Former contestants, LGBTQ activists, and drag artists criticised his comments, asserting that it was an ignorant view on trans identity. RuPaul has since addressed the comments. Read writer Jake Hall’s piece on the recent controversy and the power of gender inclusive, radical drag here.
