A nation can let out its collective breath: After weeks of hand-wringing, pearl-clutching, and taking out our frustration on loved ones by asking them, “Am. I. A. Page. In. Your. Hiss. Tor. Ee. Book?we now know for certain when and in which capacity Paula Abdul will once again appear on TV. She’ll be hosting the ‘Vh1 2009 Divas’ concert, featuring Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, and Jordin Sparks, plus “additional performers” to be announced by Vh1 in the near future. You’ve already voiced your displeasure with the 2009 lineup (AHEM Miley) when PopWatch asked who’d be better to headline Vh1’s much-touted franchise revival. So does the addition of Paula to the scene help make Divas Live a can’t-miss event? Sure, Paula’s more of a Diva than any of the guests, but it still seems that even more than American Idol‘s former “nice judge,” Vh1’s showcase event could use some A-list vocal firepower, no? Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Madonna all have albums dropping this fall and could add some heft to the performances. This was supposed to be a big deal, right? Where are all the divas?
