Shout out to DJ Dimepiece for nabbing the initial deets! Our good friends at The Young, Black, and Fabulous also had this to report:
It was ladies’ night for the troops last night. Presented by the USO at the MCAS Miramar in San Diego, Nicki Minaj and Keri Hilson hit the VH1 Divas Salute The Troops stage to provide eye candy and music for the soldiers.
They performed alongside Katy Perry, Jennifer Nettles, host Kathy Griffin, MC Lyte, and more.
Fun times I’m sure. The show will air Sunday, December 5 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on VH1. And here’s what the USO President Sloan Gibson had to say about how much this show means to our troops:
“The USO is thrilled to be partnering with VH1 and honored to be a part of delivering such an uplifting event to our nation’s troops. The holidays are especially tough for our men and women in uniform and their families, and having the opportunity to touch so many troops stationed around the world at a time of year that matters most lets them know that America still cares about their welfare. There is no better time to celebrate our armed forces and support their efforts than now.”
Will you watch Vh1’s Divas Salute the Troops?
