The eliminated queens from season 16 of RuPaul’s Drag Race will get another shot to win big. RuPaul announced that the next episode will also see the return of this season’s Latina drag queens like Morphine Love Dion, Xunami Muse, Geneva Karr, Mirage, and Megami.

Back in January, the sixteenth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race launched with a cast that had a lot of Latina representation. Throughout the past few weeks, they were all eliminated as the competition progressed. Mirage finished in 13th place, Geneva Karr came in 11th place, Megami finished 10th place, and Xunami Muse followed in 9th place. Morphine Love Dion got closest to the finale when she was eliminated in 5th place.

Last Friday’s episode revealed the final three contestants who are still up for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar. Sapphira Cristál, Nymphia Wind, and Plane Jane will compete in the season finale next week. Before then, RuPaul announced that she will bring back the 11 eliminated queens for the next episode on Friday, April 12. They will compete in a Lip Sync Smackdown for a $50,000 cash prize and the title of Queen of She Done Already Done Had Herses. 

The trailer for Lip Sync Smackdown shows the eliminated queens giving it their all on the stage. Geneva Karr can be seen jumping into a split while Mirage is shown twerking. “I’m ready to go into war,” Morphine Love Dion says in a confessional scene. All the queens are in shock at hearing the big cash prize in store for the next Queen of She Done Already Done Had Herses. 

Season three winner Raja became the first Queen of She Done Already Done Had Herses during the seventh season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars. Hershii LiqCour-Jeté, Amanda Tori Meating, Plasma, Mhi’ya Iman Le’Paige, Dawn, and Q will also have a shot at taking home that title next.

RuPaul’s Drag Race airs on Friday nights at 8 p.m. on MTV.
