I think it's an error to say that Christina's been copying Mariah's style in vocals because all those interesting trills had it's root in gospel music. The gospel artists have been singing like that way before Mariah was even signed to a record deal.

yes but it went popular from

Mahalia Jackson - Aretha Franklin - Whitney Houston - Mariah can I get a triple trill or run in everyother word - Celine Dion -

there were others but these were the ones who made vocal exercises a form of entertainment
Marioah took it to a whole new exrteme and even invented a dance.
It's called 'the Fly Swatter'
you have to imagine being stuck in a elevator with a fly attacking you - that's right flail those arms around and you've atracted the next generation of singers but Christina forgot it was only a fly and not a swarm of bees and tends to look like she's having a seizure
That's Devolution for you!

and for your imformation when Gospel singers go inspirational and melismatic their performances and runs tend to be a one time performance and not a repeated run you would sing everytime you sing that song (hence inspirational) to repeat the same run, scale, arpeggio or write it that way into the music hardly makes it inspirational.
This is the reaon Aretha + Whitney + to some extent Celine make melismatic inspirational singing an extremely rare gift. They can harmonize at the click of a finger - switching from major to minor instantly and with the greatest of ease - the others rehearse and wouldn't know a real inspirational run if it hit them.

Christina is a 50 take wonder (like Mariah )_ which is why their releases are so flawless.

Aretha
Whitney
Celine
are one take wonders (so on rare occasions their performance isn't as flawless)

Christina wins...
Human voices may be classified according to their vocal range the highest and lowest pitches that they can produce.
For this reason, it is important to clearly define what is meant when discussing a vocal range. For example, one might say of a man that he has a two and one-half octave range in full voice and an additional one half octave in falsetto. Similarly, when discussing the range of a woman one might say that she has a "useful" two octave range with an additional major third on the bottom that is only audible with amplification.
Unfortunately, there is no standardization in this nomenclature outside of classical unamplified singing.
Mariah's octave voice is a myth!
You got all this from wikipedia. There are tuners that allow measuerment of pitches. Mariah has hit a G2 live (it's on youtube) and a G#7 live (that's on youtube also).
