Gotta hand it to VH1, I think. This fall season, MTV's sister network is bringing back two of its music-centric staples from years past, and in turn, seriously upping the cable channels' music coverage ante back to somewhat respectable (but still largely unacceptable) standards.
Whereas Behind The Music has already seen its return to TV with the airing of Lil Wayne's biography last week, tonight sees the return of VH1 Divas, the once-annual concert held by the network, which aims to shine a light on the biggest female voices in the music industry.
Set to air at 8 p.m. this evening, the show will include appearances from Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, Cyndi Lauper and Martina McBride, and performances from Jennifer Hudson, Adele, Leona Lewis, Jordin Sparks, Miley Cyrus, and--as we're contractually obligated to tell you--Burleson's Own Kelly Clarkson.
So there you have it.
