We’re creeping closer still to VH1 DIVAS Celebrates Soul airing on VH1 on Monday, December 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT and we’re starting to get the pre-day jitters! The show will feature performances by Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Florence + The Machine, Kelly Clarkson, Jessie J and other lovely ladies.
For the past 11 days, we’ve been feeling the soul of DIVAS by revisiting performances from DIVAS past, including Jill Scott, Beyoncé, Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston and more. Today, we’ve giving you another dose of destiny, with Destiny’s Child performing Diana Ross‘ “Upside Down,” and yep, they’re still in those amazing matching-but-slightly-different gold lame outfits that defined the year 2000. It’s pretty exciting to see Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland take the lead and shine (both literally and figuratively) way back when they were still part of a four-piece, and great to see the girls taking it to the audience. The performance is full of funk and synchronized hip popping, and is making us not only nostalgic for the DIVAS of yesteryear, but excited for the DIVAS of the future.
VH1 DIVAS Celebrates Soul will premiere exclusively on VH1 on Monday, December 19, 2011, at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.
