Emmy(R) award-winning "RuPaul's Drag Race" ru-veals cast for monumental 12th season premiering Friday, February 28th at 8:00PM ET/PT on VH1

New York, NY - January 23, 2020 - VH1 today ru-vealed the cast for the 12th season of award-winning "RuPaul's Drag Race." On the heels of its second consecutive Emmy(R) win for Outstanding Competition Program, the fiercest series on primetime returns to the runway on Friday, February 28th at 8:00 PM ET/PT. The highly anticipated new season brings together thirteen fabulous queens as they vie for the title of "America's Next Drag Superstar" and a cash prize of $100,000.

Additionally, the Emmy(R) nominated after-show "RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked" will premiere immediately following at 9:30 PM ET/PT. "Untucked" will provide viewers with an all-access pass to the backstage drama as the queens anxiously await their fate and who will need to lip-sync for their life to avoid the week's elimination.

"With each new generation of queens, the RuPaul's Drag Race revolution continues to drive culture," said Executive Producer and four-time Emmy(R) Award-winning host RuPaul. "And as more and more new viewers discover the show, the phenomenon continues to open hearts and minds with love, laughter and a whole lotta sass."

The newest queens who are ready to pledge their allegiance to the drag and snatch the crown of "America's Next Drag Superstar" were introduced via a Twitter Live stream which can be viewed HERE.

The thirteen queens include:

Aiden Zhane (Acworth, GA) | Instagram: @aiden_zhane, Twitter: @AidenZhane

Hailing from rural Georgia, it's apparent Aiden Zhane is attracted to the darker side of life. Horror films, Marilyn Manson, and weirdness all inform her outlandish - and original - spooky persona.

Brita (New York, NY) | Instagram/Twitter: @thebritafilter

Everyone who knows drag in New York City knows Brita. That's because this hard-working Polynesian queen captivates audiences with her famous lip-syncs... no less than seven nights a week.

Crystal Methyd (Springfield, MO) |Instagram/Twitter: @crystalmethyd

The only thing Crystal Methyd is addicted to is attention. And with her quirky fashions, incomparable makeup skills and screwball sense of humor, she'll certainly be catching the judges' eyes.

Dahlia Sin (Los Angeles, CA) | Instagram/Twitter: @dahlia_sin

Originally hailing from Brooklyn, Dahlia Sin emerged from the Haus of Aja (of Season 9 and All Stars fame). Now this look queen lives in LA, where she wows the west coast with her urban brand of sexiness.

Gigi Goode (Los Angeles, CA) |Instagram/Twitter: @thegigigoode

This leggy fashion queen is only 21, but enters the competition with a sizeable social media following. Gorgeous fashion illustrations come to life and make her Instagram fans stan.

Heidi N Closet (Ramseur, NC) | Instagram/Twitter: @heidincloset

Heidi comes from Ramseur, a small country town in North Carolina. She playfully says there's little to do there except count chickens and cows. But her infectious persona is sure to make her a global name very soon.

Jackie Cox (New York, NY) | Instagram/Twitter: @jackiecoxnyc

The Persian princess of drag has arrived. Born in Canada and with Iranian heritage, Jackie Cox now considers the New York cabaret stage her home. She loves to write her own shows and bring them to life.

Jaida Essence Hall (Milwaukee, WI) | Instagram/Twitter: @jaidaehall

Jaida Essence Hall always strives to be the essence of glamour. She originally wanted to be a fashion designer, and now gets to both live that fantasy and model her own gorgeous creations.

Jan (New York, NY) | Instagram: @janjanjan, Twitter: @jansportnyc

Jan is a musical theater queen and skilled singer, who can belt in the original key of a female popstar's song. Ambitious and driven, she's looking to slay the Drag Race performance challenges.

Nicky Doll (New York, NY) | Instagram: @thenickydoll

The first French contestant to compete in RuPaul's Drag Race, Nicky Doll relocated from Paris to New York City, where she enchants audiences with her European catwalk, high fashions and seductive charm.

Rock M. Sakura (San Francisco, CA) |Instagram/Twitter: @rockmsakura

Rock M. Sakura's aesthetic is an amalgamation of anime, manga, and anything pink. With her high-energy death-dropping performance style and dirty sense of humor, this is a queen who defies categorization.

Sherry Pie (New York, NY) | Instagram/Twitter: @sherrypienyc

A campy, polished queen who knows her references, Sherry Pie will leave an audience in stitches. And with Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett as her icons, she's certainly learned from the best.

Widow Von'Du (Kansas City, MO) |Instagram: @thewidowvondu, Twitter: @WidowVonDu

The Widow is up in the building. A Missouri girl who lives life out loud, this queen can perform the house down... and dance circles around her competition.
