Queen Latifah arrived in style at last night's (22MAY03) VH1 DIVAS DUETS LIVE - riding a DUCATI motorbike onto the stage at the MGM GRAND in Las Vegas, America.

The rapper-turned-actress, who was presenting the show with rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne, kicked off the annual show with a revamped version of her MAMA MORTON song from hit musical Chicago.

She opened the song with, "Ask any of the divas in this show, they'll tell you I'm bigger than J.LO."

The larger-than-life star later rapped the opening of Chaka Khan's chart smash I FEEL FOR YOU.

The night kicked off with a duet between Beyonce Knowles and Jewel, covering rock classic Proud Mary.

Jewel showed off her new sexy image by wowing the crowds in a yellow mini-dress.

A bronzed Celine Dion, one of the show's special guests, followed the sexy duo singing HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE?

Other stars performing on the ladies night included Mary J Blige, Ashanti, Lisa Marie Presley and a duet with husband and wife Bobby Brown and WHITNEY HOUSTON.
