* RuPaul's Drag Race season 12 has disqualified competitor Sherry Pie for misconduct of a sexual nature, but the queen is still featured in episodic footage.

Looks like there's not one, not two, but three parts to the premeire of RuPaul's Drag Race season 12. And yes, we would like to get on with it, but it looks like Ru and the network are dragging this one out. The upside: with premieres come advance previews of the episode.

In the first two parts of the permiere, Ru allowed the queens to debut in two different groups, where they both did a two-look runway for a mini challenge, before taking to the mainstage as girl groups to perform their own verses. May of the performers were impressie, some were not but in the end, Widow Von'Du and Jaida Essence Hall reigned supreme. We love to see it.

But now, it's time for everyone to meet everyone else.

In a new clip, released on YouTube ahead of the episode's official premiere, the queens all greet one another with hugs. The New York City queens realize that there's a whopping five of them -- Brita Filter proclaims that she's the best. And to be honest, they don make up quite a bit of talent form the series. That said, the other contestants are nothing to shake a stick at: neither Von'Du nor Hall are from the Big Apple.

After some good natured shade -- what can't Gigi Goode do well -- they peel out of drag and the next thing we know, we're ready for the mini challenge.

With a visit from some Pit Crew mainstays (Miles Davis Moody and Jason Carter) the winning queens from the previous premieres get to rank their compeitors. The bottom two of each ranking ... aren't necessarily ones we disagree with! And finally, we are off to the maxi challenge assignment. Can't wait to see how this turns out.
