Drag Race is heading to Vegas, and while it's not a competition this time, the stakes are still high. 

RuPaul's Drag Race: Vegas Revue is the newest addition to the franchise, and it follows a handful of fan fave queens as they put together their brand new Las Vegas residency, RuPaul's Drag Race Live! The stage even looks like the Drag Race workroom, and fans of the series will definitely recognize some songs. 

In a first look exclusive to E! News, RuPaul comes to watch the show for the first time and he's got some notes. A lot of notes. There are missed cues, misread jokes, and one girl who's still not off book, despite the show opening in less than two weeks. 

"People love Drag Race, the television show," he says. "Will we be able to translate that same excitement into a live show? It's a crap shoot, pun intended."

RuPaul's Drag Race: Vegas Revue stars Yvie Oddly, Asia O'Hara, Derrick Barry, Kameron Michaels, Naomi Smalls, and Vanessa "Vanjie" Mateo and follows both their personal and professional journeys as the show comes together. 

The actual show opened in Vegas at the end of January, just in time to get in a few shows before the coronavirus pandemic hit in March. 

The six-episode Vegas Revue premieres Friday, Aug. 21 at 8 p.m. on VH1. 

VH1 also just announced that RuPaul's Drag Race and RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars will be back for new seasons, so we can all rest easy knowing the drag show continues on.
