The Paramount+ singing competition returns on Friday, June 2.
Queen of the Universe is finally back with season 2. The world's fiercest competition, which sees each drag queens debuting a new musical number in front of a live audience and a "Pop Dival Panel" of judges, returns to Paramount+ on Friday, June 2. And among this year's contestants are queens from nine countries including the United States, Mexico, Brazil, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Israel, the United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.
Executive produced by RuPaul and hosted by Graham Norton, Queen of the Universe follows some of the world's most talented performers as they battle it out for global domination during head-to-head singing battles spotlighting their wide range of talent. The winner of the $250,000 cash prize will be determined by returning judges, Michelle Visage, Trixie Mattel and Vanessa Williams. They will be joined by Mel B, who is taking over for Leona Lewis after season 1.
"I loved judging Queen of the Universe," Mattel told ET about sitting on the panel. "Every day my jaw was on the floor. These are some of the most amazing singers in the world and they do it in a wig and heels. It’s, like, unbelievable."
