Meghan Trainor to Perform, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Season 8 Cast To Be Ru-vealed at Logo’s NewNowNext Honors
Grammy nominee Meghan Trainor is scheduled to perform at Logo’s NewNowNext Honors, joined by openly-gay pop artist Who Is Fancy (Jake Hagood). And in news that RuPaul’s Drag Race fans have been waiting nearly a year for, the Season 8 cast will be Ru-vealed through a series of videos of the queens. Drag Race fan favorites Katya, Ginger Minj, Shangela, and Ivy Winters will have the honor of introducing the videos.
Each year, Logo TV sponsors the Aspen Gay Ski Week event and airs various specials on its channel during the week—all leading up to the NewNowNext Honors. This year’s awards will be hosted by comedian Margaret Cho and is set to air on February 1 at 10pm ET/PT on Logo.
In a statement from Mama RuPaul herself, she exclaimed, “Oh! My! Gag! This season’s queens are the most twisted yet.”
“I fell in love with them the first moment we met,” she continued, “and I can’t wait to unleash these crazy and talented bitches onto the world.”
Trainor is equally excited to perform at the NNN Honors, saying “I’ve always wanted to go to a Logo awards show. I was so honored when they asked me to come to NewNowNext this year because not only do I get to attend and perform, but I get to show my support for the LGBT community who have always showed me so much love! I can’t wait!”
Logo will air a handful of specials leading up to the awards: a comedy cabaret special hosted by Drag Race season 6 winner Bianca Del Rio, and a special Cocktails & Classics with Michael Urie.
