    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.”

    Since
    debuting in 1998, “Divas” has become one of VH1’s most-watched and
    best known franchises. Previous performers include Mariah Carey,
    Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Diana Ross, Cher, Tina Turner,
    Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Adele and Kelly Clarkson. The 2011
    installment, “VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul,” attracted 1.3 million
    total viewers and doubled the previous year’s average rating,
    according to Nielsen Media Research.
     

    Houston’s “Divas” tribute will cap off a year of renewed investment
    in music programming for VH1, which has been talking up its 2012-13
    “upfront” slate to advertisers and agencies since January in private
    presentations (the network did not hold a formal upfront event this
    year, unlike Viacom sibling MTV).
    Calderone says music accounts for about 33% of the network’s
    airtime, including re-energized franchises “Storytellers,”
    “Unplugged” (a partnership with MTV), “Behind The Music” and “Pop Up
    Video” as well as newer programs like “The Greatest” and weekday
    talk show “Big Morning Buzz Live.” VH1 is expected to debut a new
    take on a “Where Are They Now?”-style series later this summer.

    Can’t wait!

    Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson need to be a part of this event.

    I’d also include Mary J. Blige, Brandy and Monica.

    Thanks Gucci

    I really hope they go by vocals and not popularity with who all they choose.

    I hope they bring in a variety of real women in every field of music and not women all in the same class/genre. Enough of Jennifer Hudson already, its getting repetitive seeing her everywhere.

    But wow not till Decemeber eh.

    Anyone BUT Jennifer Hudson and Christina Aguilera please. 

    I think the roster should feature vocalists from different genres, not just your typical oversinging divas.

    Dolly Parton is an obvious choice, if she would bother with such a low-end show.

    I highly doubt she would. This show has been a bit of a mess over the years.

    I think Dolly Parton made an appearance last year so it’s possible she may be apart of this one.

    I would love it if Dolly participated, but the only obvious song she should sing would be I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU and I feel those VH1 people would want some big bombastic voice to sing it Whitney style…Dolly would be the better choice!!!

    ^^^ I agree. If it wasn’t for Dolly there wouldn’t have been such a song for Whitney to sing.

    God bless you and Dolly always!!!

    I mostly definitely agree with the person who mentioned Mariah Carey. I would LOVE to see Yolanda Adams also!
