VH1 is changing things up this year for its annual "VH1 Divas" show that will air next month. Kelly Rowland and Ciara will be performing tributes to Whitney Houston and Donna Summer. Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Jordin Sparks will also be performing this year.

In past years, VH1 has had musical powerhouses including Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, Celine Dion and others perform tributes but this year, it seems they're switching it up a bit with Ciara and Rowland. VH1 released the following information via press release:

This year’s show will celebrate the dance-inducing music that is the vibrant soundtrack to every major blowout bash, unforgettable party and night out on the town. VH1 is bringing together Ciara, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Jordin Sparks to pay homage to the greatest divas of dance music with performances featuring current and classic dance hits.
“This is going to be one hell of a party! We are extremely thrilled to have the extraordinarily talented Adam Lambert as our 2012 VH1 Divas host,” says Lee Rolontz, EVP, Original Music Production & Development, VH1 and VH1 Classic. “The world has truly been inspired by dance music and what better way for VH1 to pay tribute than by honoring legends Whitney Houston and Donna Summer through song and dance.”

The show will air on Dec. 16 at 9 p.m.
