RuPauls Drag Race, Leslie Jones, Season 12, E! ExclusiveVH1

We all better be ready for tomorrow night's Drag Race, because Leslie Jones is in the house. 

The comedian and former SNL star is serving as guest judge, and judging by the exclusive photo above, she's going to be making her mark on the show. Not content to stand there and barely smile like Ross Matthews, Michelle Visage, and RuPaul, she seems to be twerking. 

We can't stop looking at the look on Ru's face as she's being twerked upon by Leslie, and we can't get over how Leslie appears to be living her absolute best life in her guest gig. 

We'll get to see how she does when the episode airs tomorrow at 8 p.m. on VH1, but we can't imagine she won't absolutely kill it, as she has been everywhere she's been going lately. 

From Lady Gaga to Padma Lakshmi: RuPaul's Drag Race's Most Memorable Guest Judges

She became one of the stars of New York Fashion Week earlier this year when she sat front row at Christian Siriano's show and cheered on the models, and she also appeared as an excellent guest judge on Project Runway this past season. She had a lot to say, as she probably will tomorrow night. 

The episode features the queens competing in a pageant of "sports-inspired couture," and hitting the runway in three "ball-themed" looks.
