Sorry. But the impromptu runs that she did here, at the blink of a hat, during an interview, are the stuff of fucking dreams! The Voice!

I don’t think so, r3. They were pretty cool with one another.

She's wrong about Mariah having a great voice, it was decent but nothing extraordinary, and those gimmicky vocal "inflections" are pretty dated, like Christina Aguilera and her warbling.

R9. Whatever. Whitney was being incredibly nice here. At her peak, Whitney was untouchable.

At their respective vocal peaks, I prefer Whitney’s voice - granted she didn’t have Mariah’s Minnie Ripperton extension, but she had a beautiful creamy voice in the low end of her range that seamlessly transitioned into a gorgeous thrilling belt and clarion mezzo-soprano head voice. Mariah always feel like she was manually gear shifting between her very distinct and less integrated registers.

Whitney was jealous of Mariah’s whistle register

Yeah, Mariah's voice doesn't flow effortlessly from one octave to the next in the same way that Whitney, Barbra and Celine's voices do. But Mariah possesses a 5-octave vocal range, which none of those women have, so it's a tradeoff. Ariana Grande has a 5-octave vocal range like Mariah, and her voice can shift between octaves more smoothly than Mariah's voice can.
I think a smoother transitioning voice is more pleasurable to listen to.

Watching Whitney sing with other female singers, she often takes an alto harmony and makes it more exciting than the lead.

R14. I could care less about octaves. Sometimes, I can barely understand some of the words that Ariana is singing across her range. By comparison, Celine's voice is crystal clear despite her nasal and language issues. In French, she is incroyable. And Whitney was at another level during her peak.

Ariana's voice sounds paper thin. She sounds and looks liek a 12 year old playing dressup. Both Whitney and Mariah are way better than her.

Whitney and Mariah singing When You Believe at the Oscar
Beautiful voices. The funny part is when Whitney’s voice destroyed Mariah live 😂

Ariana Grande is okay if you like watching high school talent shows. Mariah Carey had it but then she lost it, both vocally and mentally. Even at her best, Mariah still couldn’t touch Whitney when it came to vocal power and the ability to fill a room with her voice. Whitney didn’t need the production enhancements or vocal coaching that Mariah did. We might have lost one of the greatest singers of our time to a debilitating drug addiction but she’s more deserving of Hall of Fame status than that jaded famewhore, pseudo-diva, Mariah.

Whitney was always a better singer than Mariah, even when her voice started to decline.
|by Anonymous||reply 24||Last Thursday at 4:39 PM|
The vocals on Mariah's first album were superior to anything that Whitney ever recorded during her career. She blew Whitney out of the water.
Unfortunately, her voice didn't last very long, but neither did Whitney's.

Mariah blew Whitney out of the water? Where and when and in which planet? Not this planet obviously. Whitney has always been called the voice by the music industry and been much more respected than Mariah.

The only thing Mariah blew was Tommy's dick.

R27, Barbra Streisand was The Voice. Other than having a technically great voice, Whitney couldn't touch Streisand as a singer or artist. Whitney's music was generic at best. Celine Dion is a better singer than Whitney.
Except in her early years, Whitney couldn't sing her songs live as good as on record. She either lowered the keys to her songs, or she used backup singers to handle the high parts for her.

R28 Mariah has sold 200 million albums, 19 #1 songs, most weeks at #1, Billboard song of the decade in 2 decades, a #1 in 4 decades, and when people think of Christmas they think of Mariah, Santa, and Jesus ..in that order.
Go suck a dick, whore.

R30 best selling artists of all time and Mariah at #16 more than Whitney but she has more albums
|by Anonymous||reply 31||Last Thursday at 7:02 PM|
Mariah sucks, or sucked. Horrible. Both had horrible music. Who cares how many octaves someone has? I’ll take a Dolly Parton much smaller voice any day. Big voiced singers are exhausting and I’m not impressed.

I wasn't a fan of Whitney but there is nobody else who even comes close to the standard of her voice.
Mariah has a great voice but it's not even vaguely in the league of Whitney Houston's voice.

Whitney had a great voice, but a shame Clive Davis was her producer. Sure he had great commercial instincts but he loaded her down with such bad, though highly commerical material.

R35, so you would have preferred she be less commercially and culturally successful?
|by Anonymous||reply 36||Last Friday at 4:08 AM|
R35, I just wished she'd had been given more interesting material worthy of her talent. For instance when her voice eroded in the 00s instead of recording that I Look to you album she'd done a blues album instead.

My main take away from that clip is that Whitney leans lez. Mariah’s peak was her debut album, which was the only time it was reasonable to consider her talent along side Whitney’s.

Well, Mariah won. She's still alive and kicking and is working towards her 20th #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100.
When you compare her career to those of Whitney, Madonna and Celine, there is no doubt that she has come out on top and continues to thrive. She got her 19th #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 just last year.

Yes. a song from 26 years ago hit number one. Let's not act like Mariah's new music is popular.
