Amy Winehouse passed away in July, but her music is still very much in our hearts, as evidenced by the strong chart showing enjoyed by her recently released posthumous album ‘Lioness.’ Since Ms. Winehouse was nothing if not a diva, it’s only fitting that she’ll receive the tribute treatment during this year’s ‘VH1 Divas’ telecast.

An all-star lineup of performers will offer their renditions of Winehouse songs, including Florence Welch (of Florence + the Machine), Wanda Jackson, and Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.

Welch and Jackson will team up for a performance of ‘Back in Black,’ while Jones is scheduled to perform ‘You Know I’m No Good.’ The medley will be introduced by Nas, who collaborated with Winehouse on the ‘Lioness’ track ‘Like Smoke.’

The Winehouse tribute is just one part of what’s shaping up to be an impressive roster — other artists confirmed to appear at the show include Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott, Jessie J, Chaka Khan, and Erykah Badu, all backed by the Roots. Though the concert will take place in New York, this year’s ‘Divas’ will pay tribute to the cities that inspired the performers, including Chicago, Detroit, London, Memphis and Philadelphia.

‘VH1 Divas’ is set to air on Monday, Dec. 19 at 9PM EST. Set your DVR now!
