hero? thats a good song but lets be honest it just doesnt compare to whitney and celines songs. whitney houston and celine dion are in a league of thier own. i am not hating on mariah because even i cant deny she has a good voice but she should be compared to someone like christina aguilera. does any one remember the divas live show with celine dion, aretha franklin and mariah carey singing natural woman if not then watch it on youtube and that would be all the proof you need that mariah shouldnt be compared to such legends.

Now come on I wa snice about tour Celine lol But seriously how can you compare Mariah to an artist like christina aguilera? Your comparing someone who has sold 175 million albums (Mariah) to someone who has only sold 30 million (Christina). Someone who has been in the business for over 17 years (Mariah) to someone who has been here for just over 6 years. christina aguilera only really appeals to teenagers and young people and maybe not now because she has changed her style but Mariah appelaed to the masses at one stage in her career. I think this just comes down to a matter of opinion they are all great artist who desrve to be respected in their own right imagine comparing Cene Dion to someone like Jessica Simpson or Leona Lewis which someone on this site already did insinuating that Leona Lewis is better than Celine come on now that's just wrong.

Remember power isnt everything you can have all the power you want but if you can't show the emotions in your voice then what's power gonna do. Secondly, I think talanted singers should be verstile rather than just doing one thing say belting. And finally yea I did watch DIVAS live and yes Celine and Aretha did have more powerful voices (remember power isnt everything) but I also remember she was really well respected by other artist there even ptti labelle gave her a standing ovation and Aretha really gave her props too. Even the other artists really respect her talent but Christina aguilera please (not trying to hate on her) i'm sure Aretha Franklin doesnt even know who she is.

Celine Dion sings with passion and soul as does Aretha Franklin and Whitney, you can not compare Whitney to Mariah, Whitney comes out on top, teh bodyguard soundtrack alone is unsurpassed.
But the biggest and brightest of them all - you guessed it
Queen of Pop Madonna You don't need a million octaves, you just need to be an all round talent, driven, ambitious, determined, sexy, noone puts on a show like Madonna, noone.

not only is mariah the best, she also writes all her own material! whitney and celine are given songs and then guided as to which songs to sing and sometimes how they should be sung!

please this is no contest it is obviously celine dion, she is after all the biggest selling female artist in the world, if you dont believe me just check this out on youtube, "The Biggest Selling Female Artist of All Time (2007 version)", this should be more than enough proof.

Madonna is the biggest selling and most successful female artist of all time

Queen of Pop Madonna

Whitney is better than Mariah by a mile

Celine is better than Mariah by a mile

Noone is bigger or better than the Iconic Madonna

I would really like to know now who is the biggest seller out of Madonna and Celine, I read on wikipedia (not best of sources- I mean some haters have already changed Mariah's sales figures and chopped off about 30 million although she would still not have sold as much as Madonna or celine if you include these)that madonna has sold about 250 albums and 150 million singles and that is impressive and I guess would make her the numbeer one seller but then I read in other places that it is Celine she even got a world music award in 2004 for being the selling biggest female artist of all time, but I dont know if any unbiased person could clarify this it would be good lol

I am not biased. Madonna fans take the truth very seriously.

Guiness Book of World Records and the Music Federation clearly state that Madonna is the biggest selling female by a mile

This is difficult.Well,these ladies posess rare telent(obviously).I would have to say mariah now because her voice is still in good shape,although she appears to struggle with her older hits live.Still,she is amazing!20 years ago I would've said Whitney houston because of the stregnth,but now she sounds muffled-not bad though for being 44.Now Celine Dion is good but I am not a huge fan of hers due to the fact that her music tends to be dull.No body has mentioned that these women are heading toward middle age.So what will they sound like in another 15 years?

You have to be unbiased to find a winner, but singer vs singer vs singer... I'd give 1st to Whitney Houston because of her Delivery and power. Mariah does sing higher, but Whitney can probably do the same if she wanted.

If you listen to the song that Whitney and Mariah have together. Mariah's voice is a shadow compared to Whitney. It's almost like Whitney had to bring herself down to Mariah's level so it seems more like a duet.

Also, Mariah tries really hard and when you look at Whitney, it's almost as if singing is a joke. Her voice just comes alive without any effort at all, it's truly amazing.

Anyway,
1) Houston
2) Cary
3) Dion

first of all Whitneys voice was good until she started doing all that crack, and even though Mariah and her crazy hand can still somewhat sing her vioce isn't anything special unlike Celines whos voice has been booming that same butifull way since 1980, so let me correct your list,

CELINE
Witney
.
.
.
.
.Mariah

My honest opinion

1)Mariah
2)Whitney
3)Celine

I put whitney above celine because I prefer her style of music to celine's and also while I dont listen to either I can take the sound of whitney's voice more than celine's

anyway i've said it time and time again celines voice has not changed one bit thats why she beats them all, here is proof from her recent performance in her final vegas show on december 15. Dont tell me whitney and mariah can still sing thier old songs like this, well mabey mariah but not whitney,



this is also a pretty recent performance that shows off her very powerfull voice.
