VH1 Divas 2009 took place in New York last night, hosted by Paula Abdul. The concert series has been absent since 2004 but made a triumphant return with headliners, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Leona Lewis, Adele, Jordin Sparks and Miley Cyrus along with special guests Cyndi Lauper, Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow, Martina McBride, India.Arie and Stevie Wonder (?!?) who were drafted in to perform special duets with the headline acts.
The ‘divas’ sounded incredible ESPECIALLY Kelly Clarkson. Jordin Sparks gave a stunning performance of ‘S.O.S (Let The Music Play)’ Leona Lewis duetted with Cyndi Lauper on a wonderful version of ‘Time After Time’. Adele’s performance of ‘Hometown Glory’ was breathtaking and her duet of ‘Video’ with India.Arie was a good choice. Sheryl Crow did a great job duetting with Miley Cyrus on ‘If It Makes You Happy’. The show will be broadcast on VH1 in the UK on Saturday 26th September 2009.
