Event: 2012 VH1 Divas (Trespassing Promo)
Venue: Shrine Auditorium
City: Los Angeles
Country: United States
Adam is the host of the 2012 VH1 Divas. Broadcast live from Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium, this year's show is a celebration of dance music. The concert pays homage to legends Whitney Houston and Donna Summer who passed away during the year. The bevy of celebrities appearing onstage include: Demi Lovato, Ciara, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Rowland, Jordin Sparks, Pitbull, Kelly Clarkson, Melanie Fiona, Metric, Natasha Bedingfield, Keri Hilson, Iggy Azalea, Ledisi, Paloma Faith and Bootsy Collins.
For this concert, the show opens with a hilarious skit starring Adam with Nene Leakes. Also appearing in the skit are Sutan Amrull, Paula Abdul and his brother Neil. He then proceeds to perform a modern disco version of David Bowie's "Let's Dance".
For the Donna Summer tribute, Adam appears in the middle of the medley, first starting off with "Love to Love You Baby", then "Hot Stuff", and finally "Last Dance" with the rest of the divas Kelly Rowland and Keri Hilson.
In the Madonna tribute, Adam performs "Ray of Light" in an OTT pagan monk outfit by Kokon To Zai. The song starts out a little off-pitch due to sound issues but he quickly recovers and delivers a fantastic vocal performance.
Throughout the show, Adam makes multiple outfit changes including what looks like a fighter pilot jumpsuit.
