VIDEOS: J-Hud, Mary J, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, & More PERFORM For VH1 Divas!
VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul debuted Monday night. And we've got videos of our fave performances of the night inside....
The show was a dedication to the cities who birthed soul music like Chicago, Philly, London, Memphis, and Detroit. So singers joined forces with unlikely partners to duet and collabo for some good music.
During the intro, which kicked off with a collabo for Diana Ross' "You Keep me Hangin' On," Jennifer Hudson performed "Spotlight," Mary J. Blige rocked "Real Love" and Kelly Clarkson performed "Since U Been Gone" as they all backed each other up.
And Mary rocked out with Chaka Khan for "Aint Nobody":
Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, and Black Thought performed one of my fave songs "You Got Me." But in a totally different fashion.
And Erykah and Chaka Khan teamed up with the legendary Mavis Staples for "I'll Take You There":
Did Erykah really bust out screaming in the middle of this song? Yes indeedy....
Nas introduced the Amy Winehouse tribute done by Florence Welch, Sharon Jones & Wanda Jackson w/ The Dap-Kings:
Ledisi and Kelly Clarkson performed Aretha's classic "Chain of Fools":
