A few weeks back, Kelly Clarkson, Florence Welch, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, and Jill Scott were all announced as the headliners at this year’s VH1 Divas, which is set to celebrate soul music this year when it airs Dec. 19 at 9 p.m.
As we steamroll closer to that date, VH1 has shared with EW the first look at fave Kelly Clarkson’s poster promoting the big night. In it, Clarkson is, in a word, looking Stronger, mostly because the photo used is taken from the artwork from her latest album. Clarkson has been in bed with VH1 quite a bit lately, as she also recently did an Unplugged special for the network to raise awareness for Stronger.
Anticipate Ms. Clarkson’s return to the Divas stage by taking a gander at the poster here:
Each of the headlining ladies will get their own poster, and you can find those at other various media outlets around the web right now. (Looking for the other posters? Check VH1 for Jennifer Hudson, USA Today for Florence Welch, and MTV for Jessie J.)
There’s no word yet on what Clarkson — or the other ladies — will be singing for the special. But you can definitely count on torch songs, melisma, and diva-vs.-diva covers.
