2009 VH1 Divas

Filed under : Entertainment

There’s a new class of young and fabulous divas in town and they are ready to ‘party in the U.S.A’.

After a four-year hiatus, VH1 brought back the VH1 Divas live concert event.  All the way in Brooklyn, NYC, many gathered for the 2009 VH1 Divas held at the Academy of Music on Thursday(September 17).  The night consisted of young and talented divas such as Jennifer Hudson, who gave birth to her son David Daniel Otunga Jr.; Leona Lewis, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Clarkson, Jordin Sparks and my favourite, Adele.


The night was opened and hosted by Paula Abdul, but she got the most attention after being playful impersonating Ellen DeGeneres, wearing Ellen’s signature suit, tennis shoes and a blonde wig.  Paula received roars and cheers as they saw her dance and prance around onstage.  Paula then wished her a ‘good luck’ to DeGeneres.  (Paula was sadly let go from American Idol and Ellen was hired to ‘replace’ Paula’s judging job)   


Leona sang harmonically with Cyndi Lauper on song, “True Colors”; Jennifer Hudson had the best diva moment singing with her childhood hero, Stevie Wonder; Jordin Sparks sang a beautiful duet with Martina McBride singing “Broken Wing”.            

Keri Hilson; Liza Minelli; Lauren Conrad; Hoba Kotb; Corbin Bleu; India.Arie; Cyndi Lauper; Sherly Crow and Stevie Wonder were among the presenters and performers during the concert. 


All in all it was a fantastic show, and lets hope VH1 will do another great Divas concert!
