The inspire us, they challenge us, they turn us on — last night we kicked off the first installment of our “100 Greatest Women in Music” list, covering #100 (Pussycat Dolls) through #81 (the Spice Girls). (You can see the full list here to find out what’s in store as we count down to number one). If you missed the first installment of the show, you can check out the preview video above —it’s scored to Ellie Goulding’s phenomenal “Starry Eyed”— but we warn you; it’s a pretty tantalizing montage of some of your favorite women in music history, and will probably make you hot, bothered, and impatient for the next installment. Which, not so coincidentally, airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT and counts down from #80 (Sara Bareilles) to #61 (Shirley Manson from Garbage).
Don’t forget to watch the 100 Greatest Women In Music special, brought to you by Summer’s Eve, on VH1 each night this week at 10 p.m. ET/PT. #80-61 will air tonight, Tuesday, 2/14; #60-41 will air on Wednesday, 2/15; #40-21 will air on Thursday, 2/16; #20-#1 will air on Friday, 2/17.
