Aretha Franklin Performs Adele Again — And THIS Famous Face Singing Backup Just Ain't Feeling It

| Filed under: Music MinutePollsWhitney HoustonDavid LettermanAdeleAretha FranklinLate Night TV

She's still down with Adele!!

After releasing the audio track of her Rolling in the Deep/Ain't No Mountain High cover this week, Miz Aretha Franklin has been making her late night TV rounds.

She stopped by David Letterman on Monday to perform the jam — but instead of listening to the song, we were totally distracted by one of her stage-mates…

Specifically, the familiar looking woman to the left!

Since we've got extensive diva knowledge, we had a feeling there was a famous face among the soul queen that evening — and it's none other than Whitney Houston's 81-year-old momma Cissy, singing backup!

First off, we're just so happy to see the gospel songstress is out, about and working these days. She looks just wonderful! But still, we couldn't help but notice her disinterest in the performance, which is odd especially since she's been singing backup for Aretha since the mid-1960s.

Maybe she's just not a fan of Adele! But — who doesn't love Adele?!

Ch-ch-check out the song (above) and try and guess Miz Houston's emotions throughout! It's pretty great!

Who Will Replace Celine Dion At Caesars Palace?! These Divas Are In The Running To Viva Las Vegas!

celine dion residency end

So bittersweet!!!

It might be time to bid farewell to Celine Dion's longtime residency at Caesars Palace, but that means there is room for a new performer to take over the strip.

Rumor has it that The Coloseum operator, AEG, has Mariah Carey, Adele, Blake Shelton, Prince, and Bruce Springsteen on their short-list of replacements!

DAYUM.

The frontrunner might actually be Mariah because she is supposedly about to sign a $750,000 deal to play two nights at the legendary stadium.

Seems like a test run to us!

What a tough decision to make with so many different musicians that are all equally talented!!!

Which diva/divo would YOU like to see sign a residency deal at Caesars Palace?
