Last night, a number of stars lit up the VH1 Divas Live stage in honor of Donna Summer and Whitney Houston—both of whom we tragically lost this year.

Kelly Rowland performed a rousing rendition of Summer's "Bad Girls" hit, while Keri Hilson, dressed in disco attire, performed "She Works Hard for the Money." The ladies received a bit of help from honorary diva Adam Lambert who performed "Hot Stuff." At the end of the tribute, the trio came together and performed "Last Dance" as the perfect send off.

Soon afterward, another bill of incredible divas paid tribute to the late, great Houston. Jordin Sparks dazzled the crowd with a performance of "I'm Every Woman," while Melanie Fiona sang "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" and "It's Not Right But It's Okay." Ledisi then came on board and sang "How Will I Know" for the finale.

Check out Donna Summer's tribute above and Whitney Houston's tribute below.
