Mariah’s Mariah, you know.
Mariah rocks.

Leona’s not bad. Although to be fair, Bleeding Love’s all I’ve heard her sing, so I don’t know.

Leona, but Mariah’s had the longer career so far so she deserves to sell more than Leona.

# 5

Better singer hahaha…Mariah has a range that no singer can touch , plus she writes and arranges her own music , so you cant touch that..even is leona sells a lot more, she will need to sell zillions more to make the amount mariah does on one album…

hahaha…I never heard leona anyway, who the heck is she???

# 6

Leona Lewis has the better voice now, I don’t know what happened to Mariah’s, but it ain’t that good anymore.

# 7

leona for sure
her voice is so much richer than mariah’s

# 8

Leona.

Leona obviously! Mariah is just passed it now! Move over Mariah!

Mariah…is Mariah….of course, Mariah Carey is the number One!

mariah in her prime.

to bad her prime was yearssssss ago. not to mention her image is trash.

Pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad @ 04/17/2008 at 10:12 am

leona

They are both good but Leona!

WHATTTTTTTT?!
I love Leona; she’s a breath of fresh air these days, but seriously, how can she compare to the diva that is Mariah?! Female singers have always looked up to ones like Mariah and Whitney, so please!

Are all the repliers on JustJared too young to ignore Mariah’s greatness? Ok so the girl’s bit crazy but listen to her numerous albums!

SO ignore her crazy antics; Mariah’s the greatest!

its obviously mariah. mariah songs cant be sung by any others except herself. its those kind where its just magical. it was made for her and only she can sing it well. leaona still has a long way too go to beat mariah voice. even if she sell plenty of album sales. mariah proves that she is the better singer. the voice is beyong comparison. like that of whitney.

Leona is prettier and has a richer voice. mariah is passable looks wise but has vocal range (do people really care about that?)and is a good songwriter. last night on American idol. mariah did not impress. She never had any stage presence, ever. I’d say it’s about even between Mariah and Leona.

[☆F a m o u s☆] @ 04/17/2008 at 10:36 am

lol @ people comparing the old (diva) mariah to leona. compare the present (crazy) mariah to leona.

its painfully hilarious watching mariah try to hit those high notes like she use to. lmaoo

leona for sure, you only have to watch the x factor clips to see her live singing is amazing.

Leona is a new comer…Mariah has been in the bussines for decades…so…of course Mariah!!!!!!!

Mariah has done too many covers for my taste. Her fist album is one of the greatest ever. That’s the voice that I like, not the whistling teapot voice that she has now. Leona has years to catch up.

How does Mariah compare with Aretha Franklin?

leona is a copy of houston and carey. Im not impressed.

I prefer leona…i like her songs…especially better in time, take a bow and bleeding love……to me she is much better…i like her very much..besides i never like too much mariah…i don’t know why…

Leona Lewis is so sexy form head to toe! IDK if any of you ever heard this song from her, but I recommend “Angel”. Buy the CD or get it off form iTunes. (LEGAL MUSIC IS DOPE!) It Sounds similar to Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable”

i was having a conversation with my mum the other day comparing the two artists and i have to say mariah all the way! she can rap hehe

MARIAH HANDS DOWN! NO-ONE COMPARES TO MISS CAREY!!!

EVERYONE is retarded for comparing Mariah’s voice to Leona’s. Yeah, Mariah’s vocal style has changed but come on, Leona’s influenced by Mariah’s early albums. This is ridiculous. Jared, why would you even start a topic like this. You too seem retarded.

Steve ship @ 04/17/2008 at 11:14 am

Mariah is a horrible singer.

LEONA LEWIS *******!!!

Mariah Carey is old news and boooooring.

mariah can’t sing anymore, where do her voice go? she was pure garbage last night on idol, jennifer lopez can’t sing her ass out of a paper bag and she did better on idol last year than mariah..leona is the new and better improved version of mariah. mariah is the past and a few years left and leona is the future.

I don’t see anything special about Leona.

I can’t stand both of them

Leona all the way . Leona has a very very amazing voice and her vocal range is fantastic. And i’ve heard all her songs and they are brill. I no mariah has been a singer for a lot longer then leona but you have 2 starts sum where rite?Leona doesnt relli know what a gr8 voice she has and she’s relli humble. She IS NOT like 1 of these arragant celebs. GO LEONA

Zanessa, i totally agree with you. I like mariah(the music), i can’t stand mariah(the woman), her attitude stinks, she acts like her **** doesn’t smell and just so fake. I hope Leona doesn’t change, she’s very sweet. Mariah needs a plate of humbleness in her life and a damn stylist, sick of her lil hooker dress.

LEONA LEONA LEONA LEONA….DEFFO!!! no doubt about it! amriah may sell more bt leona will ALWAYS be better!!!

they’re both ****….
AI’s crap as well.

Lets be honest. Mariah is not the same singer she was before. She doesnt use her voice to its full potential anymore, pretty much cause she feels she doesnt have to, being that she is already the star she needs to be. The first years of Mariahs career were just amazing. Now all she does is squeal, move her huge hands around, and wears skimpy outfits to get attention. Remember when she first came out? She’d wear a pair of jeans and a black top, and the voice did all the work.

Now Leona. I see a star over this chicks head. She sings amazingly. I hope she stays true to her talent and keeps singing the way she does; she’ll get far.

Let the best player (singer) win; in this case Leona. Great voice, talent, and she’s still young. She can make the best of what she got. Mariah on the other hand is not using her talents right. Instead of singing about being touched like some 20 year old singer, sing and act your age man

those who think leona is better are probably deaf. leona is trying to be as big as mariah and whitney. so shld mariah win. leona is new. new and bad. she still has a long way to go to be mariah and probably wun reach mariah standard. usually stars like this are only for a short while unlike the experienced ones.nobody in the world can sing like mariah. isit mariah fault that her management want her to sing songs that do not showcase her vocal quality to the maximum potential yesterday on idol. u can just listen when she is coaching she sounds breathtaking just singing and coaching the idols impromptu. unlike leona. she is just a few hits wonder.she will be gone soon.

Mrs Miller @ 04/17/2008 at 12:08 pm

I’ve known of Leona Lewis since she was on The X Factor (the British answer to American Idol), and from what I’ve seen of her, she seems like a nice girl. She doesn’t have all those diva demands like Mariah has, and she’s a way more down-to-earth person

I think Mriah should be the better singer. I watched Leona sings on Ellen show and I wasn’t that impressed.
Love the new Mariah CD.

Leona, I’ve never really liked Mariah though some I’m probably bias!

they are both good, its just that mariahs had alot more time in the game and a lot more expirience

That style of singing is over and outdated. It belongs on cruise ships now.

who cares who’s been aroung longer…it’s about the better singer…i will go with leona…i like mariah more though…ive been a fan of her for YEARS.

@ JING

i thought i was the only one that though leona was a mariah/whitney hybrid.

Leona!! Mariah’s voice is awful these days. For all you haters on Leona, check out Ms. Carey’s performances on SNL, The Hills, and Idol. She does not have it anymore and Leona’s voice is so fluid and beautiful and not rushed. Mariah has now resorted to lip-syncing because she knows her voice is nothing like it used to be. Leona does not have to strain to hit a note like Mariah does these days! Mariah your time has come and gone and Leona will be the one on top in the next decade!! Ferocious!!

lewis is fantastic, but i am partial to carey. carey is up there w/ streisand & franklin, maybe not in terms of style but in vocal ability & achievements. takes alot more than a debut album to compare to that-lewis needs more time.

Leona is the best singer by far!!!!!!!!!!!

She just lucky.Unlike Mariah with her big voice,Leona too ordinary like many singers i found in church.Let’s see if she can keep her lucks in the next few years.Keeping is always the hardest to do.Salute for her if she can prove that i’m wrong 8-)

LEONA all the way =]

L-E-O-N-A!!!! bleeding love and better in time are two of the best songs in the uk charts. love leona, not feeling mariah.

Christina @ 04/17/2008 at 2:02 pm

i dont understand how people can compare the two. Mariah has the best range… this is odd to me. wow Mariah sold that much in a day, thats a lot.

LEONA LEWIS ALL THE WAY, i tottaly love her cause shes british and im british and FYI bleeding love is’nt the only song she sings thats the only song that been realesed in u.s.a

Mariah Carey !

i think it’s christina aguilera, joss stone, lily allen..
LOL
i don’t like none of these too tacky singers.

This is a stupid comparison. Can Leona ever come even close to Mariah’s greatness. Mariah’s is a one in a billions and billions voice. Leona is just o.k.

Jennifer W @ 04/17/2008 at 2:48 pm

mariah is the best and i love all her music. ive loved mariah since i was a little girl and even now i still love her and her music its great.

Are you kidding? Mariah, hands down. Sure, Leona is a great singer, but she doesn’t top Mariah by a mile. And Mariah can’t touch Whitney. It’s just the way it is.

hmm… you really can’t compare the two other than them both having powerhouse voices. i’ve followed mariah’s career since the 90′s and i’ve seen and heard leona’s performances on youtube. it’s only natural we want to compare though. i’m sure this will all resurface again when whitney houston finally comes out with her new music… more power to them all…

C’mon, Leona cannot TOUCH Mariah. She needs to pay her dues and maybe in 20 years we can have this conversation. Mariah has one of the top three voices of all time!

Leona is way better, Mariah sucks. Everybody thinks she is great but she’s not.

LOOK ALL YOU IDIOTS TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION IN THE WRONG WAY NEED HELP…..

MARIAH HAS BEEN ON THE SCENE FOR A LONG TIME SHE IS BRILLIANT AND SHE MAINTAINS IT ALL THE TIME HER MUSIC IS OUTSTANDING AND SHE IS EXPERIENCED.HER VOICE IS HEAVEN.

LEONA IS NEW AND HAS A LONG WAY TO GO ALTHOUGH SHE CAN SING BEAUTIFULLY.AND GOOD LUCK TO HER.

GOD BLESS

NO ROOM FOR HATERS!

P.S. CRITICS ARE ALSO DUBING LEONA A MARIAH CAREY (JUST REMEMBER THAT “A MARIAH CAREY) THIS IS NOT NEW TALENT LEONA NEEDS TO JUST MAKE HER OWN MATERIAL…..SO LIKE I SAID BEFORE…..GOD BLESS!

Mariah…for sure

gandacious @ 04/17/2008 at 5:01 pm

mariah !! ofcourse ..shes a legend !

I liked Mariah’s voice before but now probably Leona. But I still like Mariah overall. Better songwritter, better lower register, better personality and (shallow) better looking.

def. Mariah. that leona girl is trying to be just like her.

MovieMadness @ 04/17/2008 at 5:35 pm

Mariah ALL DAY baby…

leonalewisfan @ 04/17/2008 at 5:42 pm

they’re both AMAZING singers, but they have COMPLETELY different styles! they both have amazing ranges, though. leona’s songs are sweet, while mariah’s songs are more edgy. mariah definately has more experience, but leona is still young & will be HUGE! watch out mariah.

i agree with #6, Miapocca. Mariah writes & arranges her own music AND on top of that is a living legend. she deserves more credit, but people don’t usually take that in mind when they’re buying these albums. leona is new & fresh, which is also why so many people buy her albums, other than her AMAZING voice. I do think Leona has got a long way to go before she reaches mariah’s level. well… maybe not SO long.

LEONA!! LEONA!! LEONA!!
Mariah is really good too, but Leona is better!!!

Mariah's loverboy @ 04/17/2008 at 6:25 pm

Jared this is a ridiculous comparison, Mariah’s been around for two decades and Leona has only one hit to her name. And OBVIOUSLY Leona’s camp is trying to emulate Mariah’s early career, time will tell!!!

Leonaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa for shureeeeeeeee

Simon Cowell says Leona Lewis definitely has IT and is one of the best and I’m sure he knows. I’m liking Mariah again. Her mental breakdown put her out of sorts for a while but now she’s back. I have always loved her voice but I want the OLD Mariah—-not the hip-hop Mariah Carey. I like her to belt out songs instead of using her softy, fluffy whiny voice. She’s a great singer. Whitney Houston is my favorite singer.

Mariah Bi-o-tches. That is not even a question to be asked JARED.

I prefer Mariah but I do like Leona ‘s #1 hit, Bleeding Love.

I prefer Mariah but I do like Leona ‘s #1 hit, Bleeding Love.

Christina @ 04/17/2008 at 9:24 pm

HELLO! Mariah.

Leona. She’s been writing her own songs for years btw.

are you kidding me? is that even a question?
no one can touch mariah. shes amazing!

Mariah OF COURSE

NO + CHÁVEZ & FARC @ 04/17/2008 at 11:48 pm

Stupid question

MARIAH HAS THE BEST VOICE OF ALL TIMES!!

iPRINCESS @ 04/18/2008 at 1:23 am

what a question. MARIAH CAREY for sure. plus hearing leona’s bleeding love over and over and over again on radio has really turned me off. U CAN NEVER GET BORED OF MARIAH’S MUSIC.

charlotte @ 04/18/2008 at 4:48 am

Sorry to say, But Leona Lewis wins,
she has great talent. Just after she won X Factor on the same night just
in 30 minutes alone, there where over 50,000 downloads
for her song
“A Moment Like This”
When she was on the x factor,
X Factor is like American Idol.
which first belonged to England.
“Pop Idol” but then was sold to America.

you need to hear, some of Leona’s other song,
Like Homeless, Take A Bow. Better in time.

LEONA LEWIS ALL THE WAY :)
Done England proud :)

LEONA LEWIS!!!!

obv leona ..
mariah is FAT!

both r gd..
but leona x

Leona has definately overtaken Mariah as best singer. She’s outstanding!

Leona is the best in France!

i am british so i have to say LEONA. shes just so wonderful, her album was number one for 7 WEEKS in england.

mariah’s all right but her ‘brilliance’ has dimmed a bit.

blackpack @ 04/18/2008 at 1:12 pm

I do like them both. However you can pick up a Leona Lewis anywhere in the US, there are so many sound alikes over there. Even Christina Ag has a better voice than Leona. Lets see if leona is around in 18 years time still scoring number one singles and albums or will we see her being dragged out of some seedy drug den with a needle sticking out of her arm.

of course Mariah!!! :)

Xx-SWEETY-xx @ 04/19/2008 at 7:45 am

Leona definitely and for those who dont no who Leona is she was the winner of X Factor in 2006 and she is well better than Mariah

i agree Charlotte,
i think your right.
Leona is better,
She has a powerful voice
She sings great life, while she wa son the X factor
unlike Mariah who no way compares to Leona.

Mariah is old.
Leona is amazing and will
carry on topping the charts

I was wondering the same thing!! lol

Mariah. love her new album

Mariah. she’s amazing singer.

Mariah has a very trained voice. Her mother was an opera singer and Mariah has a voice that no can compare too. Her range is outrageous and she has never gone off key. Her whistle voice is outstanding and she learned all this from very young being trained by her mother to sing Opera. That is why she has such a wide range because of all the hard work and training when she was growing up. But she is also gifted in songwriting and she just has a God Given talent. Alot of people copy her but she definately has her own style and it cannot be duplicated. You know when she is singing and people who try to sound like her cannot even touch her voice.

leona lewis. Mariah has sang her song. Lewis is the future.

ok…so the debate is who the better singer is, right? let me just start out by saying that ms.carey has indeed changed over the decade, her style is not at all the best and the voice of course is a bit faulty at times. but recently, i was in a barnes and noble’s and actually got the chance to hear leona lewis’s album, and i liked it a bit, but wasn’t totally sold, and then i realized why: it sounded like the vision of love album i loved as a kid, with a little of “the bodyguard” thrown in. why are we having this conversation? by the fact that she does her darndest to imitate her so well, leona has already proven who the winner is. and let’s not forget, we’re talking about someone who has paid their dues, and proven what they’re capable of, not some young snot nose who listens to an album over and over again and copies it right down to the last hook. vocally, she can’t touch mariah or whitney, close but no cigar. ms.lewis will be a fine leader for the new generation of singers, but lets not forget that she didn’t light the torch.

jamie Mccann @ 04/28/2008 at 11:01 am

Leona Lewis is phenomenal.. She is much better than Mariah Carey… Leona is only 23 .. maybe thats why Mariahs had a longer career ?!?!?

Team Leona =D

WHO’S THE BEST SINGER? IT’S ME, GARRY! HAHAHA JOKING, BUT IM GOOD TOO. I LIKE THEM BOTH, BUT MARIAH, BEEN AROUND FOR ELEPHANT YEARS NOW. LEONA IS NEW AND A FRESH VOICE AND HEARD HER LIVE ON X FACTOR IN THE UK. GOOGLE LEONA ON XFACTOR AND WATCH THIS GIRLS RANGE, WICKED!!!!!

Jenniinnap @ 04/29/2008 at 2:17 pm

MARIAH!!! Leona comes close and has a beautiful voice but Mariah’s voice is unsurpassable. Leona’s pretty but Mariah looks way better. Plus you have to take into account that Leona is alot of years younger than Mariah. But regardless, Marish still comes out on top.

mariah has proven herself through the years. Leona has a lot to work on before she can be like “mariah”.

Corey Spence @ 05/04/2008 at 8:47 pm

Definately Mariah! People like Mariah come around like Hailey’s Commet; You feel em comin, bask in the glory, and sigh when they have faded. So just recognize the uniqueness that is Carey.

The1andonly @ 05/07/2008 at 4:50 pm

how kan u compare leona 2 mariah come on ppl i mean leona is a talented singer but mariah is a singing goddess and besides leona looks like a man LOL

UMM MARIAH FOR SUREEEE LMFAO@PPL TRYNNA COMPARE LEONA TO MARIAH YALL ******* DUMB LEONA CANT HIT NOTSE LIKE MARIAH CAN NEVA EVA EVA WILL SHE BE ABLE TO DO THAT AND LIKE IT SAID LEONA SOLD OVER 205,000 THE FIRST WEEK MARIAH SOLDMariah’s new album E=MC2 opened with sales of 154,000 in the first day. <<<<THE FIRST DAY COME ON LEONA AINT TOUCHING MARIAH :)

As of today Leona released 2 singles both went to #1. You can’t do any better than that.

Mariah, coz she can sing many types of songs: pop songs, church songs, r’n'b songs and she touches my heart. 4 me she’s a star))

i have to say Leona Lewis is the better singer. i can’t say i don’t like Mariah Carey (she is a good singer too) but like i said… Leona is my pick.

p.s. for the person (username: ME) who commented that Mariah has had the longer career so she deserves to sell more albums… i say.. career doesn’t matter. if you’re good, you’re good. If you do well then ppl will like your stuff and you will do great.

Katherine @ 08/04/2008 at 2:11 pm

Mariah is the best singer ever, and I must say i’m a pretty huge fan of her. And I never thought I would say this about another female singer, but I feel Leona will be just as good as Mariah one day. I watched her performances on Xfactor, and they were all unbelievably good.. she can even sing whitney houston.. which is VERY impressive! I wish Leona the best, and she will definitely have a great life ahead of her thanks to that voice of hers.

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? Leona Lewis is far better, so what if shes new and mariah has been around for longer. the fact is leona has a stronger and more talented voice, image and personality. move over mariah your passed it! theres a bigger and better diva in town, goes by the name of LEONA. and theese people who comment when they havent heard of leona, well listern to her first!. leona has a very long career ahead. WE ALL LOVE LEONA ARE BRITISH DIVA.

they should have a sing off lol

Copycats can never outdo nor outshine the original. Thus, Mariah!

I mean, seriously, so what if “Bleeding Love” has topped the billboard charts for weeks in a row? Mariah’s “We Belong Together” and “One Sweet day” did FAR better!! Not to mention mariah’s other chart-topping hits!

mariah’s good but its time for something new and that’s leona so yer move over mariah you were good but leona is the new kid on the block and no offence better than mariah

Leona is ugly.. Her voice is ****. I hate her.

Die Leona!!
Just die

Mariah I love you so much..

Mariah sales: 220 million

Leona: 4 million

i think Mariah is the best singer out of those two, although Leona is also a very good singer, i like Mariah more. But Mariah’s vocal has been going downhill since her career began, you’ll notice she lip sings a lot too, even though she has nodules in her vocal chords that is not an excuse to not sing live! But there’s still more time for Mariah for more albums and to gain more no1 hits. Leona as a new artist i think she is doing very well, i think people compare Leona to Mariah is because they both have bird like voices, I think right now Mariah’s only competition is Celine dion since Celine has 7 grammy’s and sold a lot more albums than Mariah, i know right now that Celine is not very popular because she is sticking to old style music but her vocal is still amusing if you listen to her new album taking chances! If you compare mariah to Madonna then MARIAH WINS!!!! Madonna is old and has no vocal what so ever!

michael miller @ 10/01/2008 at 3:42 pm

You haterz of mariah carey are so damn stupid yo… how that hell do you guys expect mariah carey to sound the same as she did 18 years ago, people do change going on stage hitting all those high notes of course her voice is going to go out duh…but um she just performed in hong kong and guess waht it was 100% live high notes and all yeah mariah still have it duhhhhhh.

why do people have to compare…mariah is a great singer..i love some of her songs..everybody have their own taste in music…on the other hand i’m totally inlove with leona’s voice,style and music..so what… they both singers… mariah is years in the business… leona is only starting out now, why not just be happy for her…they both great and thats that…I JUST SIMPLY LOVEEE ALL SINGERS, SIMPLY BECAUSE I LOVE MUSIC….
those people writing in with all those negative comments is just a lot of losers,,,they don’t know **** about music..
i am well aware of people got favourates, but you never diss the other because you like the next one better….that’s so sick and immature…then you thing to yourself, what a fucked up world we living in, but it’s us who wants to critisize one another who makes this world so buggered…me, i’m no saint, but one thing i know for sure…i’ve never ever critisized a singer, not once….i’ve raised opinion, like he or she has a great voice, but that is not my taste in music that i normally listen to, but i normally get curious abou what i just heard and find myself listen to it more than usual…SO PLEASE PEOPLE GIVE ONE ANOTHER A CHANCE AND STOP ACTING ON THESE SILLY, IMMATURE QUESTIONS THE PRESS OR WHO EVER ASK THESE STUPID CHILDISH QUESTIONS ON THE INTERNET, LIKE WHO DO YOU THINK IS BETTER LEONA OR MARIAH, PLEASE, IS THAT WHAT THOSE PEOPLE WENT TO GO STUDY FOR…..STUPIDITY

LEONAAA! OBVIO MARIAH YA NI CANTA POBRESITA Y NO ESTAMOS HABLANDO DE GRANDEZA SI NO DE VOZ, duh! -.-

mariah carey is old hahahahah

Susan Mueni @ 06/02/2009 at 10:25 am

Mariah is the ish. She writes 90 % of all her songs, arranges and co- produces all of ‘em unlike Leona who is just a spoon fed manufactured artiste. Let her sell over 200 million albums like MC and have more number 1′s than Michael Jackson and Elvis on Billboard like Mariah THEN we can even think of comparing her to the legendary genius that is Miss Mariah Carey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! P.S , the person who said Leona looks better than Mariah needs to see an optician ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

mariah carey @ 10/01/2009 at 4:38 am

mariah aint crazy compared to people like britney, madonna. she’s just being cute (mimi) she’s the greatest. can you seriously imagine a world without her. when she’s gone, you’ll be sorry like how you’re sorry about michael jackson

Mariah Carey looks pretty when she sings. Leona Lewis looks like she needs a **** when she sings hahaahaha

Mariah Carey looks pretty when she sings. Leona Lewis looks like she needs a **** when she sings hahaahaha

I love both of them, Leona is new and more popular than mariah is now.. however Mariah is undoubtably the better singer. When she was the age Leona is now she was 10x as good, her range was and still is phenomonal, her arragements and improvising were amazing and she wrote her own music. She was also a better live performer than recording artist which shows true talent. Im not denying Leona is amzazing, she is the best belter around today, but she does lack personality and the stage presence mariah always will have.

korran humphries @ 01/05/2011 at 5:06 pm

loena lewis is better she is fab i think loena is better because she can hit them big oprah notes whilst mariah just hits them really horrible squeky notes i remeber when she went on the x factor and done one of them really squeky notes and i had to cover me ears.

well for me, Mariah will always rock!!! .she has always been my mentor and no one bits that. though i prefer her old songs to the new ones.Leona on the other hand is amazing.i have never listened to her full album anyway, but i love bleeding love.
