This is going to be DIVA-MAZING!

VH1 has just announced that this year's DIVAS show will focus on soul music, and they've got quite a lineup set!

Performers who will be featured on the show, which airs on Dec 19, include Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, Jill Scott, Florence + The Machine, and Jessie J!

Not only that, but The Roots will be featured as the house band for the performance. Coolio!

Here's what VH1's EVP of Original Music Production & Development Lee Rolontz had to say about it:

"This years’ telecast will showcase the vast impact soul music has had on the 21st century’s music and pop culture landscape as our talented and diverse lineup will attest. This year’s Divas offers a modern twist on soul music, all while tipping its hat to the legacy of key cities that created this musical heritage."

Sounds wonderful! We'll DEFINITELY be tuning in for this one!
