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!'

Another one bites the dust.

Following American Idol winners like David Cook and Lee DeWyze, Kris Allen has "split" with RCA Records.

We're not sure whose idea it was to part ways, but the singer's last album didn't do nearly as well as his first. His sophomore effort sold 15,622 in the first week of release, while his self-titled debut sold over 80,000 copies the first week.

Either way, it doesn't sound like he's too bummed and said in a statement:

The flick was slated to be the late star’s silver screen comeback and though it’s set to premiere next week, it’ll all be SO bittersweet.
