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.

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.

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

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.

Mariah ALL DAY baby…

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.
