‘Queen of the Universe’ Will Return for Season 2 on Paramount+
Reading Time: 2 minutes
Paramount+ is bringing Queen of the Universe back for season 2. The live singing drag competition show first premiered this past December and was a hit for the streaming service. News of Season 2 was revealed during Paramount’s streaming event.
“The international drag singing competition is back! Watch the world’s fiercest drag queens perform for a live audience, compete for the crown & a cash prize of $250K! High heels, high octaves, and high stakes: Season 2 of @queenofuniverse is coming to #ParamountPlus,” Paramount’s Twitter posted.
Instead of lip-synching for their lives, the queens perform live in this Drag Race spin off. Queen of The Universe was taped at London’s Excel Centre in East London. Leona Lewis, Michelle Visage, Trixie Mattel, and Vanessa Williams were the four judges who all came from diverse backgrounds in the entertainment industry.
The worlds of drag, music, as well as reality TV show competition collided on the show. The contestants were judged on what they were wearing, their attitude, and their performances. The tough competition saw six contestants eliminated during the first episode. The themes for each episode kept the competition fresh and unpredictable.
The competition show confused fans with how they eliminated contestants during season 1. There were episodes where the judges would send a queen home while other episodes would have the live studio audience decide who stayed and who could be saved. Let’s hope they’ve cleaned up their formatting for season 2.
Ada Vox Performs on the ‘Queen of the Universe’
Ada Vox appeared on Season 16 of American Idol. The drag queen was a standout contestant and made it through to the Top 10.
While on Queen of The Universe Ada Vox showed viewers why Katy Perry loved her. The singer often stuck to ballads and constantly received standing ovations from the judges. Ada Vox came in as the runner-up behind Grag Queen on Season 1.
Drag Race fans are eagerly waiting to see if familiar faces will show up for next season. No word on if Rupaul will make an official appearance. The queen of drag has come a long way since Drag Race premiered 13 years ago.
