By now you’ve probably heard that Logo has finally told us when they’re going to air season seven of RuPaul’s Drag Race: March 2nd at 9 p.m.!

There are also some exciting new details emerging, like the fact that Queer Eye For the Straight Guy‘s Carson Kressley and Chelsea Lately‘s Ross Matthews will join Michelle and Ru on the judges’ panel. And the lineup of celebrity guest judges is pretty rad: Ariana Grande, Jessica Alba, Demi Lovato, John Waters, Kathy Griffin, Olivia Newton-John, Alyssa Milano, Kat Dennings, Jordin Sparks, Mel B, Tamar Braxton, Rebecca Romijn, Santino Rice, Isaac Mizrahi, Michael Urie, Rachael Harris, Lucian Piane and Merle Ginsberg. Whew!

To build hype, the new cast of season 7 will be coming to Philadelphia to host an evening of performance and an advance screening of the first episode. They’re be at the Trocadero on Tuesday, February 24th—exactly a week before the  March 3 debut.
