Being a diva is a little different these days. Katy Perry, Sugarland, Keri Hilson, Nicki Minaj and Paramore are taking part in this year's "VH1 Divas," but they are shifting some of the attention off themselves. They'll be singing for the military through a partnership with the USO.

Hilson calls it an incredible opportunity. She says she is proud to be in the show's lineup among so many other influential, strong and powerful women.

Perry, Sugarland, Hilson and Minaj will perform for thousands of men and women in uniform at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego. Paramore will perform at a military base in the Middle East.

"VH1 Divas Salute The Troops" premieres Dec. 5 on VH1. It will also be broadcast internationally by the Armed Forces Network.
