The Grammy-winning pop star, who previously sat on the judges' panel during season seven, will be giving critiques alongside mainstay judges Michelle Visage, Ross Mathews and RuPaul during both episodes of January 6's double premiere.
In a teaser video posted on Wednesday, December 14, Ariana was seen wearing a cone bra ala Madonna and Queen of Pop's iconic Jean Paul Gaultier-designed concert attire for her 1990 "Blonde Ambition" world tour.
In the footage, Ariana appears on a stage wearing the black cone bra, a long skirt with a lengthy slit and a set of designer pumps. Rocking her signature high ponytail, the "Wicked" actress stopped to blow a kiss at the camera as a voice-over announced the star's return to the drag queen extravaganza. The "7 Rings" hitmaker added, "Season 15 is here, and so am I."
Just a day before the teaser dropped, MTV, which is the new home of "RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked", announced the show would feature its biggest cast ever at 16. Also, the prize money has now been doubled, making the lucky winner $200,000 richer. The series was originally shown on Logo for its first 9 seasons, then moved to VH1 until MTV picked it up.
Aside from her hosting duty on the Emmy-winning show, Ariana is among celebrities who reacted to President Joe Biden signing into law the Respect for Marriage Act, granting federal protections for same-sex and interracial couples.
Turning to her Instagram Story on Wednesday, Ariana, whose stepbrother Frankie Grande is gay and proud, re-shared a post made by Impact. The post quoted Joe Biden's sayings, "The United States is on the brink of reaffirming a fundamental truth: Love is love. And Americans should have the right to marry the person they love."
