After a four year hiatus, VH1 Divas made its triumphant return. Providing a holiday backdrop, The Diva ‘Unsilent Night Special’ unleashed the highly revered vocals of Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Vanessa Williams, and Mariah Carey.

The festive summit also featured impressive performances by rising divas, JoJo, Serayah, Teyana Taylor, Diana Gordon, Bebe Rexha, and MC Remy Ma.

Check all the performances out below.


Mariah Carey – ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

JoJo, Bebe Rexha, and Serayah – ‘All Alone On Christmas’

Remy Ma “Christmas In Hollis’

Patti LaBelle – ‘When You’ve Been Blessed (Feels Like Heaven)’

Teyana Taylor – ‘Santa Baby’

Vanessa Williams – ‘Save The Best For Last/What Child Is This’

Diana Gordon – ‘Jingle Bell Rock’

Chaka Khan + Patti LaBelle + Ensemble – ‘Ain’t Nobody’/’Natural Woman’/’I’m Every Woman’

While there was a whole lot of singing, there clearly there was some lip synching in the mix too.

    I’m disappointed that this is a Christmas special. Would have preferred if this was a normal vh1 divas show.

    Jojo slayed. She should get a special all for herself!

      Girl. Mariah came sang that Intro live and lipped the rest and went back to her yacht. lol And Mariah and Vanessa disappeared from the finale….shade

      • Suicide Blonde December 6, 2016

        Mariah Carey is a porker. Prolly had to leave in a rush to hit the buffet before meeting with her photo shop artist to create her next delusional album art posters.

    Girl!!! A few weeks ago it seemed like this could be more like the first two real divas shows from the 90s… but no. Nothing like that. There´s just no superstar power nowadays when it comes to the people that CAN sang. Almost non existant. Mariah Carey (who debuted in 1990 and has done it all by now) being the hottest thing on that stage says it all. Kudos to her btw. All I want for Xmas is You was at #13 on itunes yesterday. Amazing.

    Wow, I forgot how nice Jojo’s voice is! This is kind of a reminder of why I loved ‘Too Little, Too Late’ so much! I love Chaka voice too, she’s OG! I’m sure her and Patti sound really good together! Now, what I need to do is come back later when I have time and really watch Teyana’s performance! It looks pretty steamy and I can tell she’s giving a lot! Seems like a cute line up!

  9. Melanin God December 6, 2016

    Teyana had the best performance of the night.

  10. Grapejuice fan December 6, 2016

    Remy being Remy ???

  11. Kiii December 6, 2016

    Why did they have Jojo singing with those lessers? She was singing circles around them

  12. Kiii December 6, 2016

    Also, Chaka might’ve had a little taste before the show lol

    • Casual December 6, 2016

      On the real, I was wondering why she was singing the lyrics to Ain’t Nobody so off tempo.

  13. Jason December 6, 2016

    This show wasn’t good! I was shocked!

  14. Ciah’s Turtle December 6, 2016

    The night was all about Teyana. They started the show off with the Divas giving her words of wisdom over dinner, her performance was super cute, they did a lil Christmas drop-in at her home with Iman and baby Junie, and even previewed clips of her in Vh1’s The Breaks. WERK Sis.

  15. Meteorite December 6, 2016

    I’m actually surprised by this…it wasn’t as good as I thought it was going to be…there was no energy.
    Patti was the only one singing like she was at church.
    Jojo was pleasant, although she would have done better without the other two girls.
    Chaka was truly disappointing, thats all I’ll say.
    Mariah should have remixed the song to fit her voice.
    Vanessa was good.
    IDK I’m just wanted more punch and vocal slay like how Patti was giving it.

    • Eugl34 December 6, 2016

      I don’t know what you’re were listening to, but Patti seemed lost during the duet. Chaka actually gave a better performance.

  16. eric December 6, 2016

    This was not a good show. Vanessa Williams singing her iconic song was still a highlight, and JoJo would’ve taken her song to a higher level if she weren’t singing in a trio.

  17. Slick December 6, 2016

    Mariah…c’mon meh

  18. Junior in Jamaica December 6, 2016

    So Wynter Gordon is now Diana Gordon?

    Her vocal stylings has not changed a bit…she seems like a Yodeler but I did enjoy her pop songs from some years ago. That is her space.

  19. J. Parker December 6, 2016

    THis show was a major let down. Nothing like the Diva events of the past. Maria lipped and could barely move due her breast being held up by a miracle.
    Mutha Patti was Not in good voice. She was all over the place vocally.
    Teyanna’s video intro of her family was more entertaining than her performance, her costume was gawd Awful and even then not utilized well the way she randomly removed train. I kept waiting for the performance to go somewhere and it stayed flat the entire time. Smh and can anyone tell me what was up with those kitten heels?!! Smh
    Vanessa was her usual “ok” self.
    joJo and her backup singers did ok I guess. Remy’s peformance was so short til I forgot she was there smh I gave up around then….changed the channel. Smh and was it me or was the makeup or lighting just awful?? Patti and Teyanna looked casket ready!! At one point I looked at the audience and saw all love and hip hip trash and thats when I knew that this show was not up to standards with those of the past. Just bad all around. Very disappointing. Now is it me, or did Anthony’s legs look really really shaky when they lifted Mariah?!? Get into it!!

    Mariah was a mix of old vocal tracks and prerecorded new tracks.

  21. Teflon Boy December 7, 2016

    Let me spill the real.., when it comes to Mariah, any lamb worth his/her salt knows while her voice is still impressive, for it to sound it’s best these days i.e. Flexibility, dexterity, run/riffs and power, Mariah needs sleep, no alcohol, vocal rest and humidifiers. Sooo it stands to reason that she’all continue to convince the world her voice is shot if she keeps turning up to these major billings without the necessary vocal preparation. Set, dancers and outfit on point but again, the mime track is doing all the heavy lifting because other things have taken priority once again.
