It’s finale time, hunties!  After a somewhat abbreviated season (only 9 episodes, not counting the finale), RuPaul’s Drag Race will crown a new winner for its 8th season this coming Monday night!  Most people will be watching it on their television, however the real winner will be crowned at New York City’s Stage 48 that night, where we will see if Bob The Drag Queen, Kim Chi or Naomi Smalls will take the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar.

The event is already sold out (sorry bout it, Detox voice), however Manhattan Digest’s Matt Belvedere and me will be on the red carpet, interviewing the top three along with top six contenders Derrick Barry, Thorgy Thor and Chi Chi Devayne as well as several other surprise guests!  Season 7 winner Violet Chachki will be on hand to crown the new winner, and there will also be appearances from “Family Therapy’sDina Lohan and Tiffany “New York” Pollard.  Should make for a super fun night!

The coronation will happen at 10:30 PM, with performances happening shortly after.  Can’t wait to see who RuPaul choses as this season’s winner, which is a marked improvement over last year’s queens.  Check back here on Tuesday so we can give you the full Rucap, darlings!
