Billy Porter is one of the most unapologetically fierce and fabulous celebrities, a true gift from the heavens who never fails to deliver for the gods on the red carpet. Whether it's at the Oscars, the Met Gala, the Tonys, or the Emmys, he never fails to give us life. He's an Oscar win away from an EGOT and we think we need to make him a REGOT winner by adding a "RuPaul's Drag Race" victory to his accomplishments.

Olympic medallist Adam Rippon made history when he became the first openly gay athlete to compete at the Winter Olympics and we want to see the figure skater make Drag Race "herstory" by appearing on the celeb edition. We know he's a fan of the show, having chosen the RuPaul song, "Sissy That Walk" for his debut performance on "Dancing With the Stars", which he went on to win. He also once borrowed a phrase from Drag Race alum, Kennedy Davenport when he described himself as a "glamazon b*tch ready for the runway." We're also ready, Adam.
Harry Styles has proven time and time again he's comfortable exploring the "fine line" between his masculine and feminine sides. He made a statement when he played with gender fluid fashion like the black lace Gucci ensemble he wore to the 2019 Met Gala. We'd be gagging if, when it was "lights up" on the Celebrity Drag Race stage, cameras "ruvealed" Harry. The singer was recently asked by a radio station if he'd be up for the Celebrity Drag Race challenge and he said, "Potentially yeah. Why not?" Don't tease us, Harry.

If we had our way Lil Nas X would take his horse, and himself, down to the Drag Race stage. The 20-year-old is funny, exudes endless enthusiasm and was recently spotted hanging with fashion elite like Bella Hadid at the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund 2019 Awards where he was rocking some seriously stylish platforms - knowing how to werk it in heels is pretty much mandatory for Drag Race so we're optimistic he'd be able to sashay his way down that runway.
We know RuPaul and Michelle Visage are fans of "Schitt's Creek" with Dan Levy having appeared as a guest on their podcast "What's The Tee". And we know Dan can lip sync, thanks to an episode in season four where David lip syncs Tina Turner's "The Best" to his boyfriend Patrick. We'd love to see Dan lip sync again, this time for his life, on stage. Brook Lynne Heights proved Canadians have what it takes to slay and we'd love to see Dan sashay his way onto the Drag Race stage.

Eccentric and enigmatic Ezra clearly has a passion for fashion. He's not afraid to experiment on the red carpet with skirts, dresses and makeup (he's even been the face of Urban Decay cosmetics). And we'd love to see this "Fantastic Beasts" star, who says he doesn't identify as male or female, fantastically beat his face on "RuPaul's Celebrity Drag Race". Mama Ru, if you're listening, we need to talk about Ezra.

We love when a big burly man isn't afraid to get in touch with his feminine side and from his recent cameo on "Saturday Night Live", we know Jason can a rock fur coat and some chandelier earrings. A Halloween appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" also showed us he's got moves as well as a flair for a dramatic entrance. We also know Jason can rock the colour pink and we know he owns at lease one scrunchie to hold back his luxurious locks during a glam session.
Jonathan Van Ness
Few people have the energy and vivaciousness of Jonathan Van Ness and we'd love to see him bring that charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent to "RuPaul's Celebrity Drag Race". As the grooming expert for "Queer Eye" we have no doubt he'd serve killer "lewks" and we already know he can rock a dress or skirt with style. And with all the "werk" JVN has been putting into his figure skating and gymnastics, we know he would absolutely snatch our wigs during the lip sync challenge.

Kid Cudi might not be the first celeb who comes to mind when mentally casting "RuPaul's Celebrity Drag Race", but the rapper and actor is almost begging for a drag makeover. Back in June after "Queer Eye" cast member Antoni Porowski got his own drag makeover courtesy of Drag Race alum Miz Cracker, Cudi tweeted about wanting a drag transformation of his own, saying, "Okay, so I saw Antoni from 'Queer Eye' get a drag makeover and I want one too. Would I look bad in drag? Hahaha, thoughts? I wanna feel fabulous man!!" Let's make Cudi's drag queen dreams come true!

We're not yet sure if drag kings will be part of the celebrity edition of "RuPaul's Drag Race", but if they are we'd die to see Kate McKinnon take part. There's nothing Kate can't do and she also just happens to be a huge fan of "Drag Race". Plus, with Kate being a master of impressions, she'd come to play and slay in a round of Snatch Game.

John Oliver may have "stiff upper lip" British sensibilities, but we'd love to see him let loose and ditch his suits for sequins on "RuPaul's Celebrity Drag Race". And the host of "Last Week Tonight" is a huge fan of Drag Race. At a Trevor Project fundraising gala in 2017, Oliver said he used the show to cope after the 2016 election night didn't turn out as he'd expected. "I watched five back-to-back episodes of 'RuPaul's Drag Race'," he told the crowd. "It was the version of America that I wanted to live in, rather than the one that was unfolding in history."

You may know that Chris Evans has a younger (dare we say even cuter?) brother. But did you know the "Grace and Frankie" actor is not only openly gay, but he once played on a "RuPaul's Drag Race" themed dodgeball team? We think he has the competitive nature needed to serve on stage on the celebrity edition. .
