Young class of divas inducted on VH1 special

Posted: Updated:
There's a new class of divas in town - and they're ready to rock with attitude.

Jennifer Hudson, Miley Cyrus and Kelly Clarkson were among the new inductees at the "VH1 Divas" concert Thursday night.

Paula Abdul hosted and opened the show, but she got the most attention for poking fun at her "American Idol" replacement Ellen DeGeneres - rocking a signature suit, tennis shoes and a short blonde wig - while prancing around onstage.

Hudson may have had the night's biggest diva moment - a duet with Stevie Wonder, who she calls her "childhood hero."

Cyndi Lauper, Liza Minnelli, Sheryl Crow, Leona Lewis, Adele, Jordin Sparks and India.Arie also appeared.

The show aired live from the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
