RuPaul’s Drag Race moved from Logo to VH1 several years ago and became a mainstream hit, getting nominated for – and winning – several Emmys a year since 2017.

Several SNL sketches and jokes have been inspired by Drag Race as RuPaul became a mainstream star and brought the art of drag to a new audience.

Fans of Ru – and Michelle Visage – loved the news on Twitter.
