 Kylie will FINALLY be a Drag Race guest judge (and so will Dannii)

283437 different seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race and still no Kylie Minogue on the judging panel? Madness.

Finally that situation is being put right in the very near future, thanks to the first season of the Down Under spin-off.

Entertainment Weekly has revealed that both Kylie and Dannii will appear on the upcoming cycle of the new series; as will Thor Ragnarok director and all-round funnyperson Taika Waititi.

“I’m so excited to finally be a part of RuPaul’s Drag Race for the first series [of] Down Under,” said Kylie.

“It’s such an iconic show and I can’t wait to watch the contestants perform their hearts out to win the title of Down Under’s first Drag Superstar!”

Sadly – in accordance with COVID protocols – her Main Stage appearance will not be in-person, but will be done remotely. Which, to be honest, simply means that she’ll need to come back and do it again in the flesh at a later date. 😏

Dannii said in her own statement: “I got to have a cheeky Untucked chat with the girls on RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under season 1.

“They had come straight from the runway challenge so it was exciting and tense all at the same time, not knowing who was going to have to lip sync for their life!”

Drag Race Down Under starts in the UK on BBC Three on May 2.
