VH1 just announced a special holiday episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

In the one-off episode, eight former Drag Race contestants will return to the Werk Room for a “Holi-Slay Spectacular.”

Eureka O’Hara, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, Sonique, and Trixie Mattel will compete for the title of “Drag Race Xmas Queen.”

The main challenge will feature choreography from Todrick Hall, set to music from RuPaul’s third Christmas album Christmas Party.

Michelle Visage and Ross Matthews will also be judging.

“Nothing says Christmas like ‘Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and drag queens slipping on their pantyhose,’” RuPaul said in a press release. “Celebrating the holidays with my most festive girls inspired me to record my new album, ‘Christmas Party.’ And this VH1 holiday extravaganza is my way of saying thank you to my Drag Race family by spreading a little bit of love, laughter and light across the country and around the world.”

The episode will air on December 7 at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on VH1.
