Vh1 Divas Salute the Troops is coming to you this Sunday, but to tide you over until then, the cable network has posted a preview of the opening number, which features pop stars Katy Perry, Keri Hilson, and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland performing WWII-era hit “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.” It’s inspired! The show, as you can tell from the title, is a twist on the old Divas formula, in that its—you guessed it!—saluting the troops, so this retro, Andrews Sisters throwback is a super-appropriate opening. And although she isn’t featured in the clip (which you can watch below), VH1 says that the number will also feature an appearance by rapper du jour Nicki Minaj.

Check out the clip now, and don’t forget to tune in this Sunday at 9 p.m. to see the whole show:
