Taking inspiration from the X Factor, Drag Race and Eurovision, Queen of the Universe is the show that said to hell with lip-syncing, how about we see what happens when we switch these microphones on?

The first major singing competition of the RuPaul era is fronted by Graham Norton and a judging panel of Drag Race stalwarts Trixie Mattel and Michelle Visage, former Desperate Housewife and Miss America Vanessa Williams, and the one and only Mel B, aka Scary Spice, who's stepped in for fellow pop diva Leona Lewis.

Season 2 of the show will see 10 drag queens from across the world sing their hearts out at the centre of what look like vast and incredibly elaborate stage productions, complete with dazzling costumes, armies of backup dancers, and enough hairspray to tame even Mama Ru's locks. 

Aura Eternal, who shot to fame as runner-up on Drag Race Italia, and Love Masisi, who featured on Drag Race Holland, are the biggest names taking part.

Next up: Episode 4, titled Dragging up the Past, sees emotional breakdowns occur as the seven remaining queens reminisce about their first-ever time in drag.
