“ITV1 to celebrate female singers”

ITV1 has commissioned a one-off entertainment special celebrating the world’s best female singing talent.Entitled Saturday Night Divas and hosted by Myleene Klass, the line-up includes Celine Dion, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Girls Aloud, Leona Lewis, Jameila, Natasha Bedingfield and Chaka Khan performing some of their classic tracks.

The show is being produced in association with four of the UK’s breast cancer charities and will be broadcast to mark the conclusion of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Saturday Night Divas has been commissioned by Guy Freeman, ITV’s controller of music and events and is produced by Michael Kelpie for ITV Productions.

Freeman said: “To get artists of this calibre from across the world together on one show is a great coup for ITV1. I’m sure that this collection of amazing performances will not only mean a lot to those who’ve been fundraising in October but will also be a real treat for all fans of great divas.”

The broadcaster is also lining up two more major music specials for late autumn made by ITV Productions’ entertainment department, Westlife Live On Demand will feature the best selling band performing some of their fourteen number 1 hits plus a selection of new songs from their latest album. Lee Connolly is executive producer.

Meanwhile, An Audience With Celine Dion will see the songstress showcase hits such as My Heart Will Go On, Because You Loved Me and Think Twice as well as debuting some of her new material. Simon Marsh is producer with Sue Andrew as executive producer.

ITV Productions controller of entertainment, Mark Wells said “For each of these shows, we have collaborated with the artist and their record label to come up with individually tailored formats that play to the artist’s strengths.”
