Keri Hilson & Nicki Minaj Set For "2010 VH1 Divas: Salute The Troops"

VH1 has announced the lineup for this year's "Divas" special, and there are a few surprises.  Find out who's slated to be on the show inside...

For its ninth installment, "VH1 Divas" will be paying tribute to America's troops all around the world and their families. The special is produced in partnership with the USO and will showcase performances by Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Keri Hilson, Sugarland and Paramore. I'm tempted to ask who the divas are...but I'll let it slide.

Katy, Nicki, and Keri will join Sugarland at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego.  Paramore will perform and visit with military members at an undisclosed base in the Middle East.

Miss Keri seems very excited to take part in the event, which has honored YBF divas like Diana Ross, and Aretha Franklin in the past.  

"I get to be among so many other influential women, groundbreaking women, strong, powerful, confident women, not only on that day, but just to be a part of the legacy of 'VH1 Divas," she said.

The show, which also raises money for music programs at public school, will include commentary from the troops who are stationed at the front lines. VH1 says more featured artists will be announced in the coming weeks. Loves the troops, but won't be twidling my thumbs waiting for this one.

"2010 VH1 Divas: Salute The Troops" will air at 9 p.m. ET/PT on December 5 on VH1.

They are clearly now using

They are clearly now using the term DIVAs loosley. I wouldn't call a one of them a DIVA. I guess they can't get Bette Midler or Barbara Streisand. But then again like someone mentioned. The troops wouldn't want to see/hear them anyway. The cick from Sugarland can actually really sing as well as the girl from Paramore, so it makes sense if it is for the troops. And they'll all love to look at nicki and Keri so a win win for all.

Diva's Live use to be realy

Diva's Live use to be realy excited because you know you were going to get some great powerhouses blowing the roof off, this line up is weak, not because they are not Diva's(they aren't) but they are not really great singers and Nicki is not even a singer
TheMan's picture

A lot of people are saying

A lot of people are saying they should have all these R&B powerhouses instead for the Divas Salute the Troops Special. But people need to realize the purpose of the show, which is to salute the troops. How many troops are listening to Tamia? or Deborah Cox?

Divas my ass! They could've

Divas my ass! They could've reached out to SO many other women for the show. Like Faith Evans, Kelly Price, Erykah Badu, Deborah Cox, Tamia, Keyshia Cole, Monica, Chaka, Whitney, and I can go on and on. VH1 needs to GTFOH with that list.

Oh and yes, I love Alicia as you can see by my avatar but she shouldn't be on the list either. Not yet. She has alot more work to do, so does Beyonce among others that was on that list.
PoohCandy1's picture

I'm with you on that one.

I'm with you on that one. That whole Greatest Artist of All Time List was a complete joke. Many of the artists on the list shouldn't have been on there. VH1 just serves the pop masses. No substance.

Seriously VH1?????????? From

Seriously VH1?????????? From Aretha, Mariah, Whitney, Mary J. Blige, Celine Dion to these performers? Divas Live has become a complete joke. Last year was bad enough with Miley Cyrus and Jordan Sparks, but this 'lineup' is ridiculous.

Diva, isn't that a title you have to earn, have actual talent, can sang, I mean put some work in? You can't just attach the title diva to any ol body, all willy nilly ......

what do you expect from the network that brought you "I love New York" "Flavor of Love" and "Real Chance at Love". You all seemed suprised..... btw, i had to ask a friend the names of these shows. so glad i never waisted my brain cells on that crap. good luck to all you

I love Keri's new song,

I love Keri's new song, "Limit to my love." It has an old-school R&B vibe. I haven't watched the Divas show in years; I'm not a Nicki fan, but we'll see...

Wow, I mean really, I mean,

Wow, I mean really, I mean, Keri Hilson is a good singer, but really? where are the real divas. Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Whitney Houston, Chaka Kahn, Cher, hell Lady gaga, those are the people that they should of reached out to. Idk, if Im really impressed with this line, but then again, i wasnt that impressed with the last one either.

The day of the Diva is dead

The day of the Diva is dead people! The reference originated from the opera world...where women can actually sing, so it was a stretch even for the folks they saluted in the past. After Diana, they really had no one left and since the days of artist development are dead...so goes the Diva.

Okay, I like some of these

Okay, I like some of these artists, but to call them "divas?".....That's a bit too much, considering the caliber of the past "VH1 Divas" shows. I think Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, and even Lady Gaga would have been better choices.

I agree with the blogger, the Divas show used to be about something. They just shouldn't have a Diva's show if they don't have any. A better name would be newbies and wannabees.
