Women rule and countdown specials rock! VH1 is combining the two together for a week paying homage to the women who made their mark in the music industry. “100 Greatest in Music” will honor female artists who thrived in the music industry from 1990 to present day. The list will honor female artists in a range of genres including pop, R & B, rap, country and rock. The 5-night, 1-hour special “100 Greatest Women in Music” premieres Monday, February 13th at 10 PM/9c.
It’s time to recognize the women who changed music history with the premiere of VH1’s “100 Greatest Women in Music.” Covering the past 20 years of music, VH1 premieres its first-ever ‘100 Greatest’ countdown special solely dedicated to female music artists.
VH1 explores which music icons had staying power after some 20 years in the music business and which newcomers belong on the same list with some of music’s biggest names. Will the “number one” title go to timeless icons including Madonna, Janet Jackson and Whitney Houston, or will it go to today’s record-breaking newcomers including Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Rihanna?
Industry experts, pop culture commentators and music artists including Tori Amos, Gloria Estefan and Macy Gray will offer their views on who made the list and how the artists ranked. Let the debate begin!
VH1’s “100 Greatest Women in Music” is executive produced by Jeff Olde, Shelly Tatro and Karla Hidalgo for VH1.
