Warning: spoilers ahead for RuPaul’s Drag Race season 14.
RuPaul’s Drag Race fans were absolutely loving Lizzo as the first extra special guest judge of season 14, with several calling for her to become a permanent judge… and we’d definitely back the idea.
On the first episode of the new series, the Good As Hell singer surprised the seven queens in the Werk Room, with the remaining seven contestants due to make their arrivals next week.
On the runway, the competitors were tasked with participating in a talent show, before taking to the runway in stunning ensembles in a bid to impress Lizzo, Michelle Visage, RuPaul and Ross Matthews.
Not only did Lizzo provide sound critiques to the queens, but she was also extremely supportive of them, especially with Kornbread ‘The Snack’ Jeté after the performer received some negative feedback from Michelle.
This isn’t the first time the musician has appeared on Drag Race, having made an appearance on season 10 four years ago.
She continued to be a hit among viewers the second time around, with many hoping that will return one day on a permanent basis.
‘It’s a Lizzo kinda day. She needs to be a permanent judge on #DragRace for sure. A f**king queen,’ one person tweeted.
‘I’m starting a petition for Lizzo to become a permanent judge on #DragRace,’ another wrote.
Another explained why they believe Lizzo would be a perfect addition to the panel, writing: ‘Imma need @lizzo to possibly find time to become a permanent judge on #DragRace cause sis brings the energy along with the commentary we love and need! @RuPaul we gotta make this happen!’
Others praised her for the way she hyped up the queens in the Werk Room, with one fan saying that it made the start of the season more about ‘happiness’, rather than ‘drama’.
Lizzo even responded to one of the tweets calling for her to become a permanent judge, writing: ‘If they’ll have me.’
Next week, Alicia Keys is set to grace the show as the next extra special guest judge as viewers meet the rest of the cast.
So who will join Orion Story, the first contestant to be axed, as the next queen to be eliminated?
RuPaul’s Drag Race season 14 is available to watch on WOW Presents Plus with new episodes released on Saturdays.
