Grace Potter & the Nocturnals aren’t nearly as big as VH1 Divas Salute the Troops performers like Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj. But thanks to a wildly adrenaline-inducing set that included a duet with Heart, the super-tight rock band with the ’70s retro vibe is crushing Twitter and reached #5 on Google’s Hot Searches in the U.S. directly after the show. From Grace Potter’s twitter:
We have a hunch her site crashed because of brand new fans like this:
Aside from killin’ it on the performance, we’re pretty sure Grace Potter’s legs didn’t curb any enthusiasm. Ooh La La!
While gearing up to perform for VH1 Divas Salute the Troops on Dec. 5, Keri Hilson swung by VH1′s offices to school us in fashion and take us through her outfit — from head to toe. We were a little bit surprised to hear the “Pretty Girl Rock” singer say she never likes to be “too girly.” Sure, we remember how stunning Keri looked rocking cut-off jeans and a wife-beater in the video for “Knock You Down.” But never?
“My fashion philosophy is to be myself, which is the tomboy within,” she says. “Even when I’m wearing heels there’s a certain masculine meets feminine factor.”
Even more surprising: the Grammy Award-winning Avon spokesmodel claims to “love” discount stores, including Marshalls, Ross Dress for Less and T.J. Max. “I’ll be looking through the racks right next to you,” she says. “And shoot you a smile.” Whoa, now that would knock us down. [Photos: Jen Marigliano]
VH1 Divas Salute the troops will air Sunday, Dec. 5 at 9/8c. Additional performers include Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Paramore, Sugarland, and Grace Potter& the Nocturnals. Keri’s new album, No Boys Allowed, will be released Dec. 21.
