RuPaul's Drag Race is set to return for its new season on March 2 and the Logo reality hit will be welcoming two new permanent judges: E!'s Ross Mathews and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy's Carson Kressley!

Set to replace Santino Rice, the fab duo will join RuPaul and returning judge Michelle Visage on the panel, where they will force the fierce competitors to lip-sync for their lives.

But they aren't the only new faces fans can look forward to seeing in season seven, as the sneak peek above reveals some major guest judges.

Ariana Grande, Jessica Alba, Demi Lovato, Kathy Griffin, Mel B, Olivia Newton-John and Kat Dennings are all set to appear on RuPaul's Drag Race, as well as John Waters, Jordin Sparks and Alyssa Milano. Oh, and you can add Rebecca Romijn, Isaac Mizrahi, Tamar Braxton, Michael Urie and Rachael Harris to that list, too. Talk about star power.

"Yes, Virginia, there is a gay Santa Claus!" RuPaul said in a statement. "I asked for a new, wickedly funny, smart and experienced judge…and I got two! Ross and Carson are the perfect addition to the RuPaul's Drag Race family because they're not just show biz experts, they're superfans and longtime lovers of the art of drag."

Mathews added, "I have never been more qualified to do anything in my entire life. As quite possibly the biggest super fan of ‘RuPaul's Drag Race' in the entire galaxy, I take my position as a judge very seriously and will proudly serve as a voice for my fellow super fans—albeit, a very high-pitched voice."

RuPaul's Drag Race returns Monday, March 2 on Logo.
