Shania Twain: 'Jennifer Lopez and Lizzo should headline new VH1 Divas Live gig'

Country star Shania Twain would love to curate a new VH1 Divas Live concert with Jennifer Lopez and Lizzo leading the line-up.

The You're Still the One hitmaker famously helped to launch the first annual event back in 1998, taking to the stage in New York City alongside Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and Gloria Estefan, with Carole King making a special guest appearance.

The charity gig, which benefitted the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, was held with a new slate of performers each year until 2004, after which it was revived in 2009 for a four-year run, and again for a show in 2016.

Shania is eager to see the show make another return to the spotlight, and this time around, she would want superstar J.Lo front and centre.

Asked to come up with her dream billing for a potential reboot, the singer told U.S. daytime show Strahan, Sara & Keke, "Jennifer Lopez would be top of my list."

Shania would also jump at the chance to have Fleetwood Mac legend Stevie Nicks join the party, branding her "probably one of the greatest storytellers, singer/songwriters ever", and she would round out the performers with Ariana Grande and Lizzo.

"I would want Ariana Grande. I think she's an amazing diva in the best way," she gushed, before adding of Lizzo, "(The) newest on the scene, she's a powerhouse."

"That would be a great collection of ladies, don't you think?" she smiled.
