What exactly is Quibi? This week at a CES (Consumer Electronics Showcase) presentation devoted to Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman’s short-form streaming service, a video was shown to introduce Quibi to the world—complete with appearances from platform contributors like Reese Witherspoon and Guillermo Del Toro.

During the keynote intro clip you can also catch a quick look of Sasha performing on stage during her Nightgowns show—and of course she is serving it all to the children.

“Part performance documentary, part portrait of the artist, we’ll watch her work with each member of her unique and wonderful ensemble to craft the lip sync performances of their wildest dreams. Each installment draws us to one performer in particular, and reveals their daily life, process, and backstory, culminating in a 2-3 minute made-for-mobile visual expression of their live number,” the queen’s reps explain in a press release announcing the series.

“The result will be something new: live drag, designed for the screen. Eight iconic, shareable, must-watch performances that redefine what drag can be.”

The live numbers will be directed by legendary music video auteur Sophie Muller, the woman behind some of your favorite music video classics, including Kylie Minogue’s “Dancing,” Sophie Ellis Bextor’s “Murder on the Dance Floor,” Gwen Stefani’s “Cool,” and Annie Lennox's “Walking on Broken Glass.”

Quibi is set to launch April 6.
