It was far from a silent night at “VH1 Divas.” After a four-year hiatus, the network celebrated the holiday season by reviving its iconic special with some veteran divas (Mariah Carey, Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan) and divas-in-training (Teyana Taylor, JoJo).
In anticipation of this evening’s show, which was taped Friday at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre, VH1 has teased a preview of Teyana Taylor’s striking performance of Eartha Kitt’s “Santa Baby.”
Wearing all white with a red leather corset, Teyana put her seductive spin on the holiday classic. “Come and trim my Christmas tree,” she sang while writhing on the floor. “With some decorations bought at Tiffany.”
The night also featured several other divas, including JoJo, Bebe Rexha, and Serayah, who came together for a cover of Darlene Love’s “All Alone on Christmas.” The powerhouse trio shined in gold while dancers surrounded them on an elevated platform.
Mariah Carey also delivered a magical performance of her Christmas classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” In a teaser, MC emerged from a sleigh in a shimmering red toy soldier-inspired outfit, belting out the now-iconic track with her dancers frozen around her.
“VH1 Divas Holiday: Unsilent Night,” which airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET, also featured Vanessa Williams, Chaka Khan, and Patti LaBelle performing holiday classics.
