Keri Hilson, Nicki Minaj to Salute the Troops for ‘VH1 Divas’

The military is about to get a dose of diva. VH1 has tapped Keri Hilson, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Paramore, and Sugarland to serenade soldiers for this year’s “VH1 Divas Salute the Troops,” airing Sunday, December 5, at 9 p.m.

For this year’s show, VH1 has partnered with the USO for the star-studded concert, which is set to take place at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Miramar in San Diego. While the Young Money rapper joins past collaborator Keri Hilson for the stateside performance, Paramore will head overseas to entertain at an undisclosed military base in the Middle East.

The show, which has highlighted powerhouse female performers since debuting in 1998, has featured Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Mary J. Blige, Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, and more in years past.
