Prepare yourself for the the ultimate Whitney Houston tribute! The Vh1 Divas series will honor the fallen icon in December with an all-star lineup of artists; revamping the structure of the legendary show for a final diva goodbye.
Houston performed on the Vh1 Divas stage in 1999, 2002 and 2003, and helped to popularise the franchise alongside other recurring acts such as Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey and Aretha Franklin. The lineup for the show, which will be filmed in December, has yet to be announced but The Lava Lizard is giving you the chance to vote for your top choice!

VH1 will pay tribute to Whitney Houston for its next installment of VH1 Divas, Billboard has learned. The network will tape the performance in Los Angeles in December, with Houston’s longtime musical director Rickey Minor on board as executive producer. No artists have been confirmed for the tribute to Houston, a three-time performer on “Divas” in 1999, 2002 and 2003.
The tribute has already received the blessing of Houston’s family and her label partners at Sony. “We all felt that if any show could pay tribute to Whitney’s music, it would be ‘Divas,’” VH1 president Tom Calderone tells Billboard. “December felt like enough time where it wouldn’t be sad anymore, you’d want to celebrate her music.”
