Jordin Sparks, Melanie Fiona, & Ledisi Pay Tribute to Whitney Houston at ‘VH1 Divas’

Ledisi, Jordin Sparks, and Melanie Fiona

Whitney Houston was the definition of diva, and she received a dance tribute fitting for a star of her stature at “VH1 Divas.”

Following an introduction from Brandy, Whitney’s Sparkle co-star Jordin Sparks opened with “I’m Every Woman.” Melanie Fiona entered from the aisles with “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me),” transitioning into “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay.”

Ledisi put her powerful pipes on display during “How Will I Know,” bringing together all three divas-in-training for the grand finale.

    Best performance of the show. Sort of random selections with Melanie Fiona and Ledisi but it was great to see Melanie Fiona moving around and delivering pop. I love her r&B music but she can do an upbeat performance we see now. R&b isn’t synonymous with ballads. She has upbeat songs on her albums but doesn’t perform them on tv.

    Brandy should’ve performed as well (her own material, and in the tribute to Whitney of course)

    Ledisi and Jordin sounded great

    This is why I live for R&B music. What a great choice to choose those three beautiful, classy ladies to tribute Whitney Houston. It was kind of a random pairing but it worked out well and I enjoyed the song selections. I agree with the comment above, it’s nice to see Melanie Fiona moving around and she was working that stage. Love her! Ledisi can perform ANY SONG and would sound AMAZING. Her voice is one in a million.

    See, these are the women that need to perform at a Diva event, not Demi Lovato or Iggy Azaelia (however you spell that mess.) And why didn’t Brandy perform -__- She could easily blow all these women out the water!! Loved Melanie, she’s one of my favorite artists. Everytime Ledisi performs she takes us to the vocal olympics. Her voice is like none other.

    I know I can’t be the only one who thought this was, mediocre….
