Beyoncè and Tina Turner

Turner is a one-in-a-million kind of diva, but its hard to deny she has a true successor in Beyoncè. The two share gorgeous looks, glass-shattering pipes, frenetic and often-imitated dance moves and a bold-yet-feminine style. The comparisons became crystal clear when the two divas took the stage together at the 2008 Grammy Awards and performed Miss Tina's classic hit "Proud Mary."
