Tonight (Dec. 5) VH1’s Divas Salute the Troops will air at 9/8c. Last night the rehearsals took place in San Diego on a military base. SPOILER ALERT: According to VH1, “The show will open up with a hot rendition of the WWII-era megahit “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.” The number features Katy Perry, Keri Hilson, Nicki Minaj (although she’s not in this clip), and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland.This isn’t the first time that the iconic song has been revamped — En Vogue did a short R&B version in 1990 and Christina Aguilera’s “Candyman” is a tribute to the Andrew Sisters, who first released the song in 1941.”
Spoiler Alert #2: This won’t be the only unusual pop/rap hybrid in the show — stay tuned for a duet by MC Lyte and country band Sugarland.
