VH1 is partnering with the USO to give the network’s iconic franchise a military makeover with VH1 Divas Salute The Troops. Artists involved will include Sugarland, Katy Perry, Keri Hilson and Nicki Minaj who will perform in front of thousands of men and women in uniform at MCAS Miramar in San Diego.

Paramore will travel overseas to visit with Marines, soldiers, airmen, sailors, coastguardsmen and reservists stationed at an undisclosed military base in the Middle East. The USO Presents VH1 Divas Salute The Troops premieres on Sunday, December 5 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on VH1.

“The USO is thrilled to be partnering with VH1 and honored to be a part of delivering such an uplifting event to our nation’s troops,” said Sloan Gibson, USO President.  “The holidays are especially tough for our men and women in uniform and their families, and having the opportunity to touch so many troops stationed around the world at a time of year that matters most lets them know that America still cares about their welfare.  There is no better time to celebrate our armed forces and support their efforts than now.”
