"An amazingly talented group of young women have successfully launched themselves into the global music scene since our last VH1 Divas show. We're very excited to have so many of them join us at this year's momentous event," said Lee Rolontz, EVP, Original Music Production & Development VH1, and VH1 Classic. "Adele, Kelly, Leona and Miley have all captured the world's attention with their talent and have earned their designation as VH1 Divas this year. Don't let some of their young ages fool you - these women are among the best entertainers in the world and will continue to thrill music fans for a long time to come."

Premiering on VH1 in 1998, "VH1 Divas" became synonymous with some of the most memorable live female vocal performances in television history.

Previous featured performers over the years included Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Cher, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Mary J. Blige, Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Chaka Khan and many more.

"VH1 Divas" is executive produced by Lee Rolontz, Rick Krim and Patrizia DiMaria.
