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.

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.

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.
