All right, what?!
We were thrilled to find out back in May that this year's upcoming VH1 Divas special would pay tribute to the life and music of dearly departed Whitney Houston, and couldn't wait to learn the line-up of talent to be featured for such an occasion!
However, we're pretty confused to report that in spite of the concert's namesake, this year's line-up warrants that it be re-named VH1 Former Disney Darlings!
That's right, the officially announced tribute to both Whitney and Donna Summer will include performances from Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Ciara, Kelly Rowland, and Jordin Sparks!
…again with the HUH?
While we understand the latter's inclusion, given her involvement in Sparkle, and enjoy ALL the ladies as artists, we just find ourselves a little disappointed that producers couldn't land anyone with a little more, ahem, 'clout!'
In fact, we'd argue that the person who warrants the "Diva" title the most of all is the appointed host for the evening, Adam Lambert!
He says in a statement:
"I'm so thrilled to be hosting VH1 Divas this year. I have a feeling it's going to be the most fabulous concert of the year! And LIVE!! Get ready for some amazing performances, killer fashion and fierce divas!"
We certainly hope you're right, boy!
What do U think? Are U excited with the 2012 VH1 Divas line-up??
