RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 has gone and dropped another bombshell seeing Robyn announced as the next guest judge.

The Swedish singer took to Twitter where she confirmed the news with a glitzy video.

Dressed to the nines, the 40-year-old pledged her allegiance to the drag, as she told fans to ‘join the Ru-volution.’

In the caption, the Don’t Stop The Music hitmaker wrote: ‘I was trying to be composed and glamorous, but really I was just so excited and blown away by the heart and authenticity of @RuPaulsDragRace and the other judges on the show.

‘I hope you can see how amped I am through the glitter eyeshadow.’

And fans were too excited as they celebrated the announcement in the comments.

‘A thousand angels WEPT with JOY,’ one wrote while another added: ‘OMFG A lip sync for your life to a Robyn song … oh yes they betta do!’

Someone else said: ‘Love you queen, can’t wait to watch the episode.’

The star will be joining the likes of Nicki Minaj, Normani and US congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, who are all set to appear alongside Michelle Visage on the judging panel.

The Super Bass star’s involvement has already been teased – and she’s the big attraction of the opening episode, like Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus before her.

Coming in hot on her heels, however, are Normani and AOC. The former Fifth Harmony member had a major breakout last year thanks to her solo hit Motivation, and AOC has quickly become one of the most recognisable faces of American politics.

Posting on their official Twitter account, Drag Race shared videos of all three women.

It’s also been confirmed that Whoopi Goldberg, Jeff Goldblum and Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley will also be joining the panel for one-off stints.

The upcoming series will see 13 new queens fight it out to be crowned America’s next drag superstar, and we couldn’t be more ready.

RuPaul’s Drag Race returns Friday 28 February on VH1.
