AOC, Robyn, Normani, and Jeff Goldblum announced as Drag Race guest judges

Chaka Khan, Winnie Harlow, Whoopi Goldberg and more have also joined RuPaul’s roster

Last month (January 30) Nicki Minaj was announced as a guest judge on the upcoming 12th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and now the rest of the star lineup of judges has been revealed.

Of particular note among the new celebrities pledging their “allegiance to the drag” is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the American politician who gives us hope for the future (and, for the record, has already proved her penchant for drag shows).

“This was absolutely, 100% a peak experience,” she writes on Twitter. “I am SO excited for the new season.”

Other big names joining the new lineup of guest judges are Robyn, Normani, and actor and internet fashion daddy Jeff Goldblum, whose announcement clip is characteristically chilled.

The actresses Leslie Jones, Whoopi Goldberg, and Daisy Ridley will also feature, along with model Winnie Harlow and Chaka Khan, among others.

View the full announcement thread below. RuPaul’s Drag Race will air February 28.
