Olivia Newton-John will sissy her walk on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season Seven. She will be guest-judging alongside continuing judges RuPaul and Michelle Visage and newcomers Carson Kressley and Ross Matthews.
Olivia Newton-John rose to world fame after appearing in the film adaptation of Grease. Before she was Sandra Dee though, Newton-John was serving 70s Eurovision realness at the 1974 contest with her song ‘Long Live Love’.
How’d homegirl do at Eurovision?
Unfortunately Swedish band ABBA cruised past her to take the win with their entry ‘Waterloo’ and Olivia was left in fourth place at the close of voting. That’s even more unfortunate considering she was one of only four UK acts in the 70s not to finish in the Top 3.
By today’s standards though she nailed it.
Though it is not clear which episode Olivia Newton-John will be guest-judging on it is clear she will be star company: we’re talking A-list y’all.
Chart-toppers Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato will also be taking guest slots, as will former Spice Girl Mel B.
RuPaul previously praised Conchita Wurst for her ‘openness’ and her ‘message’ of acceptance broadcast to nearly 200 million viewers around the world last May.
Conchita Wurst even featured in a drag herstory segment at the Grand Final of Season 6 which saw clown queen Bianca Del Rio take the prize over runner-ups Adore Delano and Courtney Act.
