VH1 Divas 2016: Patti Labelle Joins Mariah Carey On Line-Up

Published: Tuesday 8th Nov 2016 by Sam

VH1 is baking a tasting looking pie with their revived Divas show.

Fresh from announcing Mariah Carey as the first performer on the special, organisers have revealed that Patti Labelle will also be returning to the iconic platform.

Full story below…

Billboard broke the news that the legendary singer will perform at the Holiday themed ‘VH1 Divas: Unsilent Night.’

Beyond Labelle’s obvious credentials, she also coasts two Christmas themed projects – including 1990’s ‘This Christmas’ and 2007’s ‘Miss Patti’s Christmas.’

Speaking on her participation with the December 5th show, the star said in a statement:

“I’m so thrilled to share the VH1 Divas stage with Mariah, who is not only an incredible performer, but also my goddaughter.”


Yes, yes, and yes!

After years of “WTH” line-up’s, it’s great to see the show back on track.

With two undoubtable divas at its forefront, this already reads like a win on paper. It’ll be interesting to see who rounds out the roster of talent taking part.

    Real divas this year Mariah and Patti, but the gag is will Mariah sing with Arianna, now that is the real gag.

    • BYE November 8, 2016

      Keep it I rather Mariah and Beyoncé for the new generation

    • Sean November 8, 2016

      Nope Mariah will let Tamar sing before Ariana

    • JOHNVIDAL November 8, 2016

      No Ariana or any other lessor please. I know they will end pucking it up and adding those type of artists cause there´s a clear lack of real divas and huge artists among the young generations. But let that for later. So far, they seem to be going for the meaning this show had when it first started: only real divas.

      Its going to be a blaque screamfest. Goodbye!

    I´m assuming it will be some kind of tribute to Patti then? Same way the first one was to Aretha? Patti will probably be the only older one, I cannot imagine Mariah being the center of the show now. The normal thing is paying tribute to the older ones (if they deserve it that is 🙂 ).

    Why are they even rebooting this series?

  4. Sandra November 8, 2016

    They need to add Anita Baker, Toni Braxton, and EnVogue.

    LEGENDS! ????

  6. LilKimKong November 8, 2016

    Come thru Patti!
    Hope the only thing Mariah’s doing is just smiling and waving. Not checking for the extra diva antics and bad lip syncing #justbeinreal

  7. The A Team November 8, 2016

    I need some kinda go to be real equivalent from these legends

  8. new November 8, 2016

    Hope they add Fantasia.

  9. Monica November 8, 2016

    This show will be nothing without me there

    • ? November 8, 2016

      Why so you can sing your flops from your past 4 albums. You and Ciara should tour together

  10. Diora Couture November 8, 2016

    I think Christina will be perfect for this. After all, her Christmas album is SICKENINNNNNGGGGGG!!! And she was relegated to “The Men Strike Back,” which was just dumb.

    • Chin0 November 8, 2016

      Do you think they made christina do men strike back because of the beef with mariah and mariah may not wanted to be on the same stage as her after their altercation

      • Teflon Boy November 9, 2016

        Nah, with respect to Christina she certainly had the chops for Divas VH1 but she was only on her first couple of singles when Men Strike Back aired.., it made for a better package to have her feature on the male equivalent.
