NEW YORK (AP) – VH1 may have honored singing divas at its annual VH1 Divas special, but the night was all about collaboration.

50 Cent was hand-in-hand with Chaka Khan on the red carpet; Mavis Staples screamed her love for Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine and Ledisi gushed over meeting Martha Reeves. The rapper said he and Khan are working together on music and movie projects.

Inside the event, there were more pairings, from Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson to Khan, Staples, Jessie J and Erykah Badu.

The night honored cities where soul music has thrived, like Philadelphia, Detroit, Memphis, Chicago and London.

Welch, Wanda Jackson and Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings also paid tribute to the late Amy Winehouse at the special, which airs Monday at 9:00 pm eastern time, 8:00 pm central.
