Mama continues to get what she wants, and in this case, it’s to share the stage
with a bunch of fellow divas.

Queen Latifah is slated to host the sixth annual VH1 Divas concert, dubbed “Divas Duets,” on May 22. The show will feature a series of collaborations, including performances by Mary J. Blige, Jewel and Chaka Khan, according to organizers.

“Divas Duets” will air live on VH1 from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will
benefit the nonprofit VH1 Save the Music Foundation. More participating
artists are expected to be announced soon.

More than $25 million worth of musical instruments have been donated to 1,000 public schools since the founding of Save the Music in 1997.

Last year’s “Divas Las Vegas” show featured performances from Celine Dion, Anastacia, the Dixie Chicks, Stevie Nicks, Cher and Shakira (see “Celine Does AC/DC, Blige Brings Drama To 2002′s ‘Divas’ “ ).
