Divas: The Next Generation
After a few years, VH-1 is bringing back its Divas show this fall, and has enlisted bright young things Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, and – oy! – Miley Cyrus to headline the 2009 show, which will air live on VH-1 on Sept. 17 from the Brooklyn Academy of Music Howard Gilman Opera House.
Mmm…I really thought Alicia Keys would’ve made the cut.
Additional presenters and performers like, say, one of the veteran divas (clear your schedules, Celine, Gloria, and Mariah) will be announced soon.
“Adele, Kelly, Leona, and Miley have all captured the world’s attention with their talent and have earned their designation as VH-1 Divas this year,” said a network suit. “Don’t let some of their young age’s fool you – these women are among the best entertainers in the world and will continue to thrill music fans for a long time to come.”
As in previous years, VH-1’s Divas special will raise funds for the VH-1 Save the Music Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in American public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child’s complete education.
