"This year's VH1 Divas show will honor Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Jordin Sparks, Leona Lewis and Miley Cyrus- I am so excited!!" Paula continued.
The show will air live from the Brooklyn Academy of Music Howard Gilman Opera House in New York.
It was announced Monday that Abdul will no longer be playing a temp on Ugly Betty this season.
