    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pat Says:

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    John Says:

    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!

    holly:) Says:
