Mary J. Blige: My Life II ... The Journey Continues (Act 1)

"The VH1 Divas Concert, held Sunday night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, was nothing short of a superb display of talent and style. The show gathered the most dazzling divas around -- Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott, Chaka Khan, Dolly Parton, Mavis Staples, Kelly Clarkson and Florence Welch from Florence + The Machine, just to name a few -- to pay homage to the soul music cities of Philadelphia, Detroit, Memphis and even London. ... 'It's like being part of a team.' Blige, the Queen of R&B, was also excited about the night's attendees. 'I'm super excited to see Chaka Khan, who will be performing right next to me,' Blige said. 'And also Dolly Parton. I didn't even know she was here until I got on the red carpet.' Blige hit the stage not one, not two, but an amazing three times. She teamed up with Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson for one set in a body-hugging white gown and performed with Chaka Khan in a short beaded frock. She also performed her new album's first single, 'Mr. Wrong,' in a high-high boots and a feather-trimmed tweed motorcycle jacket" (Julee Wilson, "At VH1 Divas Concert, Mary J. Blige, Chaka Khan And Jennifer Hudson Light Up The Stage," Huffington Post, 12/19/11).
