"VH1 Divas," the annual event that brings together the top female artists for a concert, took place on Sunday night at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium.

This year's event featured performances by Kelly Rowland, Ciara, Miley Cyrus, Jordin Sparks, Natasha Beddingfield, Emily Haines and others.

"American Idol" alum Adam Lambert joined Keri Hilson on stage for a tribute to the late Donna Summer and Sparks, Melanie Fiona and Ledisi honored Whitney Houston in a musical performance that featured some of her biggest hits.
