HELL'S KITCHEN — It's time to crown the queen of queens.

The fabulous drag queens of "RuPaul's Drag Race" will return to XL Nightclub next week for an evening of outlandish performances and a reunion of the show's season 5 cast.

The May 6 party will celebrate the season's finale, bringing together the drag stars and officially announcing the show's winner. 

"RuPaul's Drag Race" brings together 14 contestants in a televised competition to see who makes the best all-around drag superstar, using challenges including dancing, singing and modeling to determine a winner.

This year's cast includes sassy sirens such as Serena Chacha, Roxxxy Andrews and Monica Beverly Hillz. Members of this season's cast appeared at the nightclub for the show's premiere party back in October.

Along with a live performance from the season 5 cast, the reigning queen and season 4 winner Sharon Needles will also be part of the show, which will be hosted by Michelle Visage and Bianca del Rio.

Doors open at 7 p.m. at 512 W. 42nd St., with festivities kicking off at 8 p.m. Tickets are available online for $20 for general admission, $40 for reserved seating or $400 for a group of four with bottle service.
