Graham Norton to host drag queen singing competition
Cork’s Graham Norton is set to host a brand new entertainment show where drag queens go head-to-head in an international singing competition. How Eurovision!
According to Variety, the Paramount Plus show which will be titled Queen of the Universe will be created by the producers of RuPaul’s Drag Race and will start streaming on December 2nd on the World of Wonder app. There is a chance that Netflix could stream the show also as they have previously hosted series of ‘All Stars’.
The creators of Queen of the Universe have promised “High heels, high octaves, high competition — this drag queen singing competition will blow your wig off.”
Norton has been a judge on BBC’s RuPaul’s Drag Race UK over three seasons along with RuPaul, Michelle Visage and Alan Carr. As well as his time judging on Drag Race, Norton has done the commentary for the BBC coverage of the Eurovision since 2009 and even made a cameo appearance in the Netflix movie Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga – so he really is the perfect choice as host for this brand new show!
