VH1 Divas 2016: Chaka Khan Joins Line-Up

Published: Tuesday 15th Nov 2016 by Sam

Can we please give a round of (rapturous) applause to the producers of the revived VH1 Divas. 

Because it seems the show’s four-year hiatus has seen organisers right the plethora of wrongs that plagued the spectacle in more recent times.

Indeed, from the onset, there appears to be a drive to re-authenticate the platform.

Case in point with the announcement of Mariah Carey as first performer and the subsequent revelation of Patti LaBelle‘s involvement.

This week brought with it news that Teyana Taylor will be taking to the stage come December 5th.

And now, it’s been revealed that Chaka Khan will too.

Details below…

The ‘I’m Every Woman’ belter’s participation marks her fourth appearance on the franchise, after previous performances on the 1999, 2003, and 2011 editions.

Speaking in a statement, Khan said:

“I am absolutely thrilled to be involved with another VH1 Divas event. My past experiences have been so enjoyable, and I’m sure this year’s festive flair will make the evening particularly special.”

Themed around Christmas, the playfully titled ‘VH1 Divas: Unsilent Night’ airs Dec 5th at 9pm ET on VH1.

  6. MUSICHEAD November 15, 2016

    Just add Brandy and it’ll be perfect!

    • Bey November 15, 2016

      Not. Nobody wants to see her bugs life looking ashe voice ass.

      • ASipOfBrandy November 16, 2016

        First off, let’s see what you look like! Brandy was actually on the Vh1 Live in 99 and thst was the best show wgich probably what prompted tbem to bring the show back so shut your forever hatin ass up!

    • ASipOfBrandy November 16, 2016

      Yaaaaasss it would be perfect! She embodies Diva!

      • Bey November 16, 2016

        Stay mad, she’s a washed up 90’s has-been.

  7. Theman November 15, 2016

    Teyana you’re cool, but this isn’t the event for her. Bring Toni B., Jojo, Carrie, Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera & Leann Rhimes….

    • Ciah’s Turtle November 16, 2016

      well.. it is the event for her. because she’s booked and the others aren’t.

  8. Sahsa_T November 15, 2016

    We need Tori, JoJo, Ariana, Fantasia, J Hud, Christina, Rihanna. I’d say my fave Beyonce, but I think it wouldn’t be fair to everyone else. lol

    • Sahsa_T November 15, 2016

      Oh, and Jessie J

    • Queen Ci November 15, 2016

      This show is for really good singing divas, not hollowing horses wearing ridiculous bundles and does stripper moves as choreography all the time. That means no Beyonce.

      • BEY>RIH November 15, 2016

        So out of all the singers she named including mediocre ones like Frihanna and Ariana, you shade Bey and claim she’s not a good singing diva…? Bítch if she came to that show she would show up and show out!!!

      • Pretty November 16, 2016

        Not a Ciara stan, girl bye. Beyonce would put every single one of those girls to shame.

  9. Carlitos November 15, 2016

    Ummm…what about Toni Braxton? After all of these Divas shows, she has yet to be honored, only presented. She literally has more class and talent than most of these ladies. Let’s get it together, Vh1!

  10. Gee November 15, 2016

    While Teyana Taylor might be the odd ball in this lineup for the most part Vh1 is on the right path with this particular line up. Because all the other women on this lineup so far have worked for their status as divas. Also they have the talent and receipts to match. But big up to Teyana for having an amazing year and being able to grace the stage with these legendary, iconic, talented women.

  11. Theman November 15, 2016

    Beyonce is good, but these women are in another league..

    • BEY>RIH November 15, 2016

      With their current vocal chops, Bey would blow them away tbh.

      • Pretty November 16, 2016

        Exactly! Beyonce would shut it down.

  12. We Nowqd Redv dibut it ash trjoan ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremixil November 15, 2016


  13. Theman November 16, 2016

    Actually, she wouldn’t. There are many recent clips of Mariah sounding way better than Beyonce. The only thing that she blows away are her delusional stans. She’s not exciting until she starts shaking. While she’s a good singer, it’s nothing special. Her music nor voice is the sole reason for her being a major draw.

    • Pretty November 16, 2016

      Your opinion, but millions strongly disagree. Nice try though.

      • JOHNVIDAL November 16, 2016

        Which millions strongly disagree on that? How is anybody attending Beyonce concerts to see her stand there and sing? Nobody! People go to see her perform her upbeat tracks. That´s where she shines.

  14. Theman November 16, 2016

    She isn’t the type of singer that moves crowds with only her voice. Nice try though lol..

    • Pretty November 16, 2016

      Again, your opinion, while millions strongly disagree.

      • JOHNVIDAL November 16, 2016

        Hmm… facts disagree with you. She can sing. Some people even know it 🙂 But the world doesn´t think of Beyonce when asked for a monumental voice. Her career is based on upbeat hits. She is not where she is because of ONLY HER VOICE. If that where the case most of her hits would ahve been ballads. She hasn´t even go there. She doesn´t have that type of voice. It´s not even debatable. She´s a different type of artist, not one that people remember for memorable vocal showings. Just no.

  15. Theman November 16, 2016

    As do manyyyyyyyyy with yours..

  16. ASipOfBrandy November 16, 2016

    Brandy was actually on the Vh1 Live in 99 and that was the best show along with Whitney, Tina,Faith Hill and more.

    • Bey November 16, 2016

      Again, nobody but her two stans cares about that bitter flop.

  17. Ciah’s Turtle November 16, 2016

    oh its a bigggg thing !!!

  18. Theman November 16, 2016

    And no cares about Beystalce outside of her a** shaking….
