It’s the 7th day of DIVAS, and the VH1 DIVAS Celebrates Soul event is hurtling towards us now — we can’t wait until it hits! Set to air on VH1 on Monday, December 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the show will feature performances by Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Florence + The Machine, Kelly Clarkson, Jessie J and other lovely ladies. In our 12 Days Of DIVAS special, we’ve been revisiting some of our favorite performances from DIVAS past, including Jill Scott, Beyoncé, Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, Donna Summer and a duet between Joss Stone and Gladys Knight.
Remember when there were 4? Today, for the 7th day of DIVAS, we’re giving you Destiny’s Child performing “Say My Name” in 2000. The girls may have been whittled down until there was only one left sitting on the throne — King B, naturally — but Destiny’s Child are iconic in their own right, and always will be. As fresh faced teenagers on the brink of young adulthood, the girls are SO 2000 in matching gold get ups, heavy makeup and synchronized dances. Moreover, they’re fierce and sexy, laying the foundation for the legacy of female empowerment that Beyoncé continues to champion 11 years later.
VH1 DIVAS Celebrates Soul will premiere exclusively on VH1 on Monday, December 19, 2011, at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.
