Kelly Clarkson & More Added To VH1’s 2012 Divas Live Concert

Watch out Adam Lambert, there’s another American Idol alum headed to the 2012 VH1 Divas Live concert. Kelly Clarkson is one of five new acts added to this year’s event being held in Los Angeles on December 16. A few days ago, the network released a promo featuring Lambert shattering glass with his voice. If anyone else could give Glambert a run for his money on those extremely high notes, it’s the original Idol, Miss Kelly “Stronger” Clarkson.

This isn’t Clarkson’s first time at the rodeo. She co-headlined last year’s tribute to the great soul cities with Mary J. Blige & Jennifer Hudson. Kelly previously headlined the show back in 2009 as well with Adele and Leona Lewis performing. The 30-year-old singer joins Ciara, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Jordin Sparks as they celebrate dance music at this year’s concert. The show also includes a tribute to Donna Summer and Whitney Houston. Find out what four new acts were added to the list of performers.


Australian DJ and singer Havana Brown will no doubt bring her infectious “We Run The Night” to the dance party. Pitbull who is featured on Havana’s track will also appear on the show. Hopefully, he performs “Don’t Stop The Party“. I can’t get enough of that song. Also joining them are R&B sensation Melanie Fiona and Canadian indie rock band Metric.

As in previous years, this edition of VH1 Divas will benefit the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping music education alive in American public schools. To date, VH1 Save The Music has provided more than $49.5 million in new musical instruments to 1,850 public schools in more than 128 school districts around the country, impacting the lives of over 2.1 million children.

Which act are you most looking forward to performing? Will Kelly Clarkson steal the show? I just hope a duet with Clarkson and Lambert is in the works. I would love for these two to battle it out. May the bigger Diva win.

    I remember when the Divas on Divas Live were real divas like Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, Cher, Patti LaBelle, Shania Twain, Beyonce, Gloria Estefan, etc. and the “special guests” were people like Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Faith Hill, Stevie Nicks, Mary J. Blige and even The Supremes.

    Ever since they brought it back it’s been disappointing. And Adele didn’t headline her year. She was just there to perform one song. Bah humbug.

    where is kylie minogue, kristine w, janet jackson, and maybe a madonna tribute since she is the all time leader on the dance chart?? i actually understand why pitbull is there and doesnt sound out of place for some reason as part of a dance tribute. melanie fiona and metric dont make sense neither does miley cyrus, demi lovato, and jordin sparks. ciara is maybe pushing it since she is an amazing dancer and some of her best songs has some of the best choreography but i feel the only dance diva on there is kelly rowland with her body of music.
    adam lambert makes sense and so does kelly but where are the other dance divas??

    I love that Kelly Clarkson and Adam Lambert are going to be there, I think that they both are worthy of the Diva title. Both have out of this world voices.
