VH1 Resurrects Divas Franchise, Conveniently Forgets to Book Any Actual Divas

Singers? Yes. Divas? Not so much.

We've gotta admit, we're not exactly sure what's going on over at Video Hits One these days. Not only did they kick their signature Best Week Ever franchise to the curb, but their programming seems to be comprised of roughly 75 percent dating shows these days. But wait, today brings the announcement that the network is bringing their Divas franchise back to life! You remember, the show where multi-octave songbirds with big hair and bad attitudes all got on one stage and tried to get along? Yeah, well, if you remember those shows with any sort of fondness, you're likely going to be disappointed to learn that this time around, the show will feature the likes of Kelly Clarkson (whom we love, but who is FAR from a diva), Adele (sorry, but you need more than one song to be considered a diva), Leona Lewis (ditto), and, erm, Miley Cyrus? We can only assume that Katy Perry had a previous engagement.
