"Let’s basically celebrate the end of 2020. I will be wearing a nice dress and trying to put blush on Bob," Mattel said in a statement. Added Peppermint: "2020 has been a rough year to say the least, especially considering many performers and drag entertainers all over the world have been out of work. It’s an honor to host this event with such remarkable talent. I find it poetic that we are all able to finally turn the page on 2020 as we count down together for this fabulous New Year’s extravaganza."
