It’s “VH1 Divas” time again and this year the network is switching up their usual soulful M.O. In the past, strong singers like Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Celine Dion, and Jennifer Hudson graced the stage for the annual event, but this time around VH1 is going the pop route.
According to a press release from VH1:
This year’s show will celebrate the dance-inducing music that is the vibrant soundtrack to every major blowout bash, unforgettable party and night out on the town. VH1 is bringing together Ciara, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Jordin Sparks to pay homage to the greatest divas of dance music with performances featuring current and classic dance hits.
“This is going to be one hell of a party! We are extremely thrilled to have the extraordinarily talented Adam Lambert as our 2012 VH1 Divas host,” says Lee Rolontz, EVP, Original Music Production & Development, VH1 and VH1 Classic. “The world has truly been inspired by dance music and what better way for VH1 to pay tribute than by honoring legends Whitney Houston and Donna Summer through song and dance.”
That’s an interesting mix of ladies to pull off a tribute to two musical powerhouses like Whitney and Donna, but I guess VH1 just wanted to mix it up this time around. Hope it works.
“VH1 Divas” airs Sunday, December 16 at 9pm. Will you tune in?
