Singer Miley Cyrus, one of the featured Divas, arrives for the VH1 Divas show in New York September 17, 2009.

This teen sensation continued her meteoric rise to the top in 2009, appearing in 'Hannah Montana: The Movie' and releasing the top-selling album 'The Time of Our Lives'. The 17-year-old Cyrus garnered criticism for her provocative performances this year, and also shocked fans by permanently deleting her Twitter account on October 8.
