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.
