Two veteran greats that we lost this year were given special salutes during the night. Donna Summer received the honor from Kelly Rowland , Adam Lambert , and Keri Hilson who paid tribute to one of the greats with a musical medley of I Feel The Love, Bad Girls, She Works Hard The Money, Love To Love You Baby, Hot Stuff, and Last Dance.

Later in the evening, an emotional Brandy introduced Jordin Sparks, Ledisi and Melanie Fiona for a power-driven tribute to the late Whitney Houston. The trio dazzled with an electric performance of I’m Every Woman, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay, and How Will I Know.

Also appearing were Metric, Paloma Faith , Iggy Azalea, and Bootsy Collins. Special appearances by L.A. Reid, Amber Riley, Ellie Kemper, Elisha Cuthbert, Kat Graham, Kelly Osbourne, NeNe Leakes, Stacy Keibler, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Paula Abdul, Sheila E. and La La Anthony rounded out the disco-themed night. Additional salutes were given to Madonna and Blondie.

VH1 Divas benefits the VH1 Save the Music Foundation that is dedicated to keeping music in U.S. public schools.
