The VH1 Divas Salute to Soul premiered tonight, but you can watch the full videos now at VH1.
Watch performances below from Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson. The show opened with Kelly, Jennifer and Mary J. Blige singing a medley of their favorite hits. Later, Kelly sang “Chain of Fools” with Ledisi as part of the Detroit medley. Jennifer and Jesse J sang “Knock on Wood” to honor Memphis.
How awesome was it to see Kelly and Jennifer share the stage? Reportedly the two powerhouse vocalists had never met before!
Plus, Kelly sang her single “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)” and Jennifer blew the roof on the joint with her David Guetta dance number, “Night of Your Life”.
I’m posting the Idol-centric performances, but some of the other highlights included songs from Florence Welch, Jill Scott, Mary J. Blige, Ledisi and appearances from legends, Mavis Staples, Chaka Khan, Wanda Jackson and Martha Reeves.
