As the COVID-19 pandemic drags on, the entertainment world is getting more and more creative when it comes to, well, entertaining us. Enter Verzuz, the beat battle series produced by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz that features DJ sessions on Instagram Live—and, even more excitingly, pits some of music’s greatest stars against each other for a musical competition judged by viewers. (In a stroke of good luck for ’90s kids everywhere, last week’s battle reunited Brandy and Monica.)
This week’s iteration is no less historic; on Sunday, industry legends Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle will face off. Below, get all of the details on the one-night-only event.
What’s the history between Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle?
The legendary soul singers have collaborated in the past, including on the Grammy-nominated 1991 song “Superwoman.” (It also featured Dionne Warwick…is there any chance she’ll make a surprise appearance alongside Knight and LaBelle? We’ll have to wait and see.)
What will they sing?
It’s anyone’s guess at this point, but we’d be surprised if Knight didn’t belt out “Midnight Train to Georgia,” her hit song with the Pips. As for LaBelle, she might sing “Lady Marmalade,” “If Only You Knew,” “On My Own” and “New Attitude,” or any combination thereof; and there’s always the possibility that the divas will duet on some song or other.
What time is the Gladys vs. Patti showdown?
The musical event will take place at 8 p.m. EST on Sunday, September 13.
