*Logo’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” has recruited Loretta Devine and “Glee’s” Amber Riley to join the carousel of celebrity judges for season 4, which is set to premiere in January.
Jennifer Love Hewitt, Rose McGowan, Kelly Osbourne and “Modern Family’s” Jesse Tyler Ferguson are also on board as guest judges to help determine America’s next top drag queen.
“I was so excited to do this I started screaming,” Amber told TVGuide.com. “I am a very big RuPaul fan. She’s absolutely gorge. I just had to make sure my hair and makeup were done right if I was in front of drag queens!”
Amber also hopes her “Glee” character, Mercedes, will be given a gender-bending kid brother when the series brings on cross-dressing “Glee Project” runner-up, Alex Newell, later this season for his two-episode arc.
“Alex seems so liberated when he’s in drag,” Amber says. “It would be great for younger “Glee” fans to see a character like that.”
