VH1 Divas Line-Up Special Honoring Whitney Houston & Donna Summer Has Been Announced… And It Makes NO Sense!

| Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Miley CyrusVH1Whitney HoustonJordin SparksDemi LovatoAdam LambertKelly RowlandCiaraDonna Summer


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??

    Those aren't "DIVAS", those are the sleaziest NO-TALENT WHORES & BULIMICS America has to offer…

    most random line-up ever…

  3. 3

    That's the best they can do? FUnny that the host has a better voice than any of the divas.

    OMG! After thunder thighs Demi butchered the anthem in front of millions at the world series, this is a slap in the face to the memory of Donna Summer and Whitney Houston.

  5. 5

    Whitney, Donna & soon-to-be Aretha are spinning in their graves….

  6. 6

    So, no Divas were available, they get these hacks.

  7. The Perez Hater says – reply to this


    OMG! Watch for attention whore Demi to glom onto this and say how much she loved and idolized DS and WH, and how they inspired her to stop puking and cutting herself!!!
    Such BS!!!!!

    The only DIVA'S worthy of tributing Whitney are MARIAH CAREY (OF FUCKING COURSE!!!), Beyonce, Celine and Christina Aguilera (as much as it pains me to say it about such a screaming mess).

  9. Rabbit says – reply to this


    WHAT? MILEY CRYUS? Oh god NO!!! PLEASE PLEASE GET MARIAH CAREY! She was AMAZING a few years ago on VH1 Divas when she sang Can't Take That Away!!!!! Love her.

    Sounds like a "One night….insert city here" parties Perez hosts.

  11. Ryan Quish says – reply to this


    Hang on what happened to the list with gaga and beyonce doing 'Queen Of The Night' it had Xtina on it and real Divas!?!?!?!

    im sorry can people just get over the fact that whitney houston is dead! damn people!!! shes been dead for a while already how many more tribute specials r we gonna have..

  13. 13

    Yeah, this lineup is very disappointed, especially compared to past years. There's no way any of these girls have earned DIVA status. You might make an argument for Kelly, but that's it. The others need a few more year under their belt, child star or not. With all due credit to Lambert, who's great in his own right, the fact that he, the HOST, out-divas most of them should be considered a problem.

  14. hay says – reply to this


    wow miley cyrus??? Im so confused..first off she's already been a diva…so if they were gonna be okay with bringing back women that have already done the show then Jennifer Hudson SHOULD have been part of it. Christina Aguilera would have been nice, she has the vocals. Maybe Beyonce! Jordan sparks- I understand…she'll be pretty good I bet. Mariah carey?? HELLLLOOOOO

    They promos keep saying the theme of the show is Dance Music, but the only one with any actual original dance records (not remixes) is Kelly Rowland. What about Rihanna, Ke$ha, GaGa, Kylie, Sia, Christina, J.lo. and dare I say Britney? Still i'll keep an open mind, last years show and line up ended up surprisingly entertaining. Plus the press release says more performers to be announced.

  16. Shanna Harvey says – reply to this


    I can see why they got Kelly Rowland to do it. She has a very Donna Summers-esque vibe in her looks and her dance music, so I could see why they would ask her. I could also see Jordin Sparks because of her Sparkle movie with Whitney Houston..But Demi Lovato, Ciara and WORST OF ALL MILEY CYRUS…WHY MILEY?!!! What happened to Christina Aguilera, Brandy, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Fantasia, Florence and The Machine, Monica, Erykah Badu??? Why not ask any of them? Like I said, I can see why they would ask Kelly Rowland and Jordin Sparks…But the others…VH1 wrong for that, but then again look who they have hosting it ADAM LAMBERT…Why couldn't they get someone like Lala or someone? VH1, ya'll are a mess!!!

    PahaHaHa what a z-list line up! They should cancel it because frankly its more of an insult with that bunch of losers. As if any of them could do justice to a Whitney or Summers song. Hellll Noooo!!

    Re: DrTake1 – Kelly is NOT a Diva. she's basically just Beyonces old backing singer. her voice is basic and she has no star quality.

  19. 19

    Re: PHWOARR – Well, I did say you MIGHT make an argument. I never said it's would be a successful one lol. But compared to everyone else, she's the closet thing. All things considered, she's been around the longest (about 15 years i think), sold more records (if you include her DC days), and she at least had a #1 song (Dilemma). Not saying it makes her a full fledged "Diva", but definitely more so than the rest of this lot.

    i have to admitt when i saw the list, i was very dissapointed!! these women are flops. i kind of get kelly rowland. but why miley, demi, ciara and jordan???? these girls are not DIVAS!! that cant even sell a record. i was hoping for rihanna, taylor swift, lady gaga, JLo and beyonce. i'm not watching this years divas, these z list are gonna make the special flop just like there album.

  21. Kelsey says – reply to this


    I can understand Jordin & Demi because they can actually SING, but as far as the rest…………..

  22. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: rosebud99 – They must have run out of
    A-list divas. They have binders full, lol.

    PuAre you serious? Now that just disrespectful! And about enough to piss you off…….Really?! Who approved this? Its #Whitney Houston! Wheres Fantasia, Patti, Karen Clark, Adele, we need some saaaaannnngers! Not no elevator singers! #I really hope this is a joke!

  25. Aardvark says – reply to this


    I hope this is not the final list! The only one of these so called "Divas" that can handle either Donna Summer or Whitney Houston's powerhouse vocals is Jordin. I hope they call on the Celine, Patti, Chaka, Gladys, Christina and Beyonce and Mariah. The ones they picked can be fillers for the "other" dance songs. Where's Janet Jackson? The show is about Dance Music, no?

  26. Me says – reply to this


    I do think Kelly will kill it, Watch a tribute she done for Mariah last night and I was really impressed!

  27. adamluv1000 says – reply to this


    I'm very excited to see Adam hosting this event and he will be performing also. He sang a Donna Summer tribute at one of his concerts and it was fantastic!! He'll probably be the best singer there. Jordin Sparks will be great singing Witney Houston also. Don't know about the others though, but Adam should make it fun. Looking forward to it.

  28. SpareMe says – reply to this


    If I have to watch another Taylor Swift or Rihinna performance I might choke. Selling records doesn't make them watchable. These young women should do very well. Also Pitbull is on board. Why all the hate on this site??? Usually don't come here cause if your not a Perez "A" lister you get trashed. We all know your best buds with Gaga! Give the tude a rest please.
