    The side comment was dumb. Beyonce honored tina turner, patti labelle, whitney honored people, MARIAH honored people in her prime. I dont get where you are going with that. But I’m sure Kelly would shut it down.

    Age and experience has nothing to do with who you are honoring you have older people far more experienced honoring younger people. That’s nothing new.

    Is Kelly tributing Mariah a good idea?

    Not really excited about hearing her sing a Mariah song. Mariah’s voice is legendary and her range is beyond ridiculous. She can go from the lowest of LOW to the highest of HIGH notes. Kelly is not vocally sickening enough to tackle a Mariah song IMO.

    I wish Beyonce’s v***** wasn’t in recovery. Would have loved to hear her seranade Mimi.

    I hope Kelly shocks yall. But no fantasia, no beyonce, Jhud anyone can do a Mariah song justice just because of her voice quality and range. Leona lewis is the only female who voice has similarities to mariah. But that doesn’t mean that others wont sound good making the song their own, so Kelly Row performing a Mariah song is an O.K. with me.

    I think this is amazing!!! I think Kelly’s voice has a lot of surprises that the public hasn’t heard, I mean listen to Kelly on Pitbull’s “Castles made of Sand” >> I Think we’ll all be shocked by what Kelly does with a Mariah Classic!

    I hope she does a medley; Like ‘Vision of Love + Heartbreaker + We Belong Together + Obsessed’ It would be amazing!!!

    It would properly represent all the styles and era’s of MC’s career, and I think Kelly could really go something with these songs.

    Rock this Tribute Kelly!!
    Mariah’s gonna be proud of ya gurl.

    @EDWARDPONTON Kelly DID NOT win a Grammy for “When Love Takes Over,” although she received a nomination with David Guetta for the song, it only won in the category for “Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical (Electro Extended Remix)” and NOT in the category that Kelly was included in. The award went to David Guetta, the remixer.

    Kudos to Mariah for not pickin predictable choices such as Leona or Christina. I’m dyin to see what Kelly does. & no I dont see anything wrong wit her tributing Mimi despite her yrs in the game. Patti tributes all the time. Even Mariah herself has. SN: I’m so tired of ppl throwin Grammy shade. So what if Bey (who I looove) has 16. The legendary Miss Ross has none. Whitney Patti Mariah Madonna who r all icons have less. Even the king himself.

    @CALL ME HATERRRRRRRRRRRR

    Dude you need to calm downnnnn.
    It’s called a tribute not “Sing the song exactly the same as the orig. artist”. Kelly clearly takes A LOT of influence from MC in her styling (fashion/interview/song chooses). Never said i’m expecting a Mariah Signature high note (not even Leona Lewis can do it like MC). But a tribute from someone who’s obviously been inspired by Mariah, totally makes sense.

    Last note, no need to shade ‘Castles made of Sand’ just cause it didn’t go number one doesn’t mean Kelly’s vocal performance wans’t Hawt. There’s been a lot of Sh*t that’s sat at number one for weeks. Don’t mean nothing.

    Have to agree with the comment that Mariah has a hard time doing her own songs justice live although she is amazing in the studio. Guess we’ll have to wait and see how Kelly will do. I’ll admit that I would not be surprised if she picks an upbeat Mariah classic (with easier vocals) or lip synchs. Maybe I am underestimating Kelly, we’ll see.

    First off Mariah can certainly do vocally what she wants. Her last few performances prove that. When it comes to quality,technique,range she is second to none. So you could have any female artist up there screaming and hollering they still ain’t touching her. Kelly is good, but a Mariah song. May’be if she chooses an upbeat song she’ll do good. But those songs still carry alot of range.

    Um, as we all know, as you age your voice gets weaker. Plus the added fact that Mariah has nodules and sings non stop without much vocal rest of course my girl isn’t gonna be on tip top shape all the time. BUT SHE WILL SLAY even on a BAD DAY :) To be honest, I’ve NEVER seen anyone do a Mariah song justice. She writes and sings them in a way that can only fit her.

    PERSONALLY, I THINK THAT THE EASIEST AND SIMPLEST MARIAH SONG TO SING IS “LOVERBOY” (2001), BUT I DOUBT SHE WOULD HONOUR HER BY SINGING THAT!!!

    ALSO, SHE WOULD DEFINETELY HAVE TO SING ONE OF THE RARE SONGS IN WHICH MARIAH NEVER TOUCHES HER 5TH OCTAVE SCALES OR WHISTLE REGISTERS!!!

    THAT BEING:

    THROUGH THE RAIN
    LOVERBOY
    WE BELONG TOGETHER
    IT’S LIKE THAT
    SHAKE IT OFF
    FOREVER
    ETC…

    AND EVEN STILL, THOSE SONGS CARRY MAXIMUM CHEST POWER AND TECHNICAL DEMONSTRATION, WHICH WOULD PROVE VERY DIFFICULT FOR AN AVERAGE SINGER WITH LESS THAN HALF THE RANGE MARIAH HAS!!!

    ONLY PATTI LABELLE, LEONA LEWIS AND POSSIBLY TEENA MARIE (R.I.P) COULD DO A MARIAH SONG JUSTICE AS ALL THREE HAD A RANGE SIMILAR TO MARIAH’S “IN CHEST VOICE” BUT WITHOUT THE WHISTLE REGISTER…

    This is going to be tragic. I am not trying to be cruel, but how on earth can Kelly do most Mariah songs any justice. She should stick to the new Mariah and stay away from her signature songs.

    I’d suggest : Shake It Off, Touch My Body, Obessed and Don’t Forget About Us

    I don’t Recommend: We Belong Together, One Sweet Day, Always Be My Baby, Hero, Emotions, Anytime You Need A Friend, Vision Of Love, Without You, Make It Happen, (or even Fantasy or Honey).

    Good Luck!

    I think some people need to have their Caps lock checked….it seems to be stuck on permanent capital letters.

    Anywoo, onto Kelly performing a Mariah song. I’m split about this, mainly because I’ve never heard Kelly’s natural singing voice. Though we did see a glimpse of it on X Factor, when she did that duet, but other than that, nothing much. There was someone above who suggested that Kelly should sing ‘Vision of Love’? Definitely no! Only Mariah can sing that song….in fcat, only 80% of the Mariah’s songs can be sung by her. Mainly because she did them in such a way (e.g. vocal runs etc.) that makes it almost impossible for other artists to do them. Leona would have been a better choice in my books, but will be interested to see Kelly’s take.

    All I ask is that she does not do ‘Hero’. I love that song, but it’s been done to death by now (just like All I Want for Christmas Is You’). A new take on an old classic would be refreshing,

    Kelly co-wrote “When love takes over’ with David Guetta. Also, those who say motivation belongs to Lil’ Wayne, that is not true. Kelly approached Lil Wayne for the rap bit. The song was already finished before Lil Wayne come out of prison. He did not write the song, just did that little rapping. He featured on Kelly’s song, so basically motivation is Rowland’s song.

    Those who say Beyonce would have sound better on Marriah tribute, l doubt it. Her voice is powerful, but she screams and therefore wouldn’t do a Mariah song any justice.

    Why don’t we just grow up and stop hating on Kelly over nothing? She is not as good as Mariah, but she is actually good in her own right. Not as successful as Beyonce’, but that doesn’t make her an inferior singer than Beyonce. Give Kelly the credit she deserves. As for xfactor uk, l think she did pretty well because uk reality shows do not fovour black or any foregn judges, end of! There was so much negative press before she joined the panel about how much they would not allow a foregn judge to shine, however, l have to say she did shine! So give her credit or if you don’t like her don’t visit this site.

    Stop hating! Kelly is a good singer. She even co-wrote that song ‘When love takes over’, so yes she deserves credit for that. She is not much different to Beyonce’ although Beyonce is more successful. I love Beyonce, but she does scream a lot, whereas Kelly’s voice is softer, so it will suit a Mariah song better. Kelly is brilliant, stop hating her!

    I do not think you can compare someone of Mimi status to any other female artists out there. I think it is ridiculous to think that anyone can sing a Mimi song and do it justice. She is a living legend because she is the best selling female artists of all time because she has more than eighteen billboard number one singles. She wrote all of her number one hits except for one or two. She is up there with Michael Jackson, Elvis, and The Beatles. Even if she she never makes anymore hit records she is the only female in that legendary class for the rest of her life. She has sold more than two hundred million records after Celion Dion with two hundred million records sold and Madonna with three hundred million records sold. Mimi has a five octave range and thats as high as you can go the only other female artist I can think of that has a five octave vocal range is Tamia. Kelly Rowland, Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga or any other female artists cannot compare to the vocal power Mimi has. They all can sing but not like Mimi can she can even sing opera because her mother is a opera singer. Opera singers now they can really really sing. There is not another artists that can hit the notes she can without even trying and use the whistle register. If you put them all in a room together she would blow them away and break glass in the process. She is the voice and there will never be another female artist like her. She deserves her recognition because she deserves it for her God giving talent. I think Kelly Rowland will do a good job because unlike a lot of popular artists these days she can sing.

    Why is everyone saying Bey should do the Tribute?!? Mariah & Beyonce are contemporaries, They are in the same lane, Mariah can still get a number one with the right song and same goes for Beyonce. Both of them guarantee a number one album on Billboard, that’s for damn sure. So they need to choose someone who “Looks up too” Mimi. Not competes with. Even if Beyonce was available, I don’t think she’d actually do it. Mariah’s her business competitor (so to speak) and close personal friend (they’re texting and hanging out all the time according to Nick & Jay). So it would Seems awkward.

    Ppl are bring up Barbra Streisand, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson etc. tributes that Bey had done. Those people are no long Top 40. They were legends of music before beyonce took her first breath. Mariah needs, deserves and should be tribute by the “next generation’ so to speak. Kelly as a new ‘Solo Artist’ is from the following generation of music.

    Bottom line; I think Beyonce and Mariah Carey are contemporaries and this is why it doesn’t make sense for Bey to do the ‘Honour’.

But I would love for debelah morgan to sing a tribute to. Most of y’all may not know who she is but she has a 5 octave vocal range to. An I do think that song one who can hit mariahs signature notes should be there somewhere in the tribute. Even people that doesn’t listen to mariah knows atleast of her whistle register. An being that patti is mariahs godmother an mariah did a tribute for her before it would be nice to see her do one for mariah.

    I can’t believe this. Sorry, but Kelly Rowland is a mediocre singer. She’s not bad, but she’s not great, and you don’t get mediocre to pay tribute to one of the greatest vocalist of all time. I’m not saying you have to sound like Mariah, but you need to have a pretty stella voice. Mary J. Blige, Brandy, Beyonce, Monica, all of them would have been better choices. K. Rowland is still d-list to me I am sorry, just cuz Motivation went top 20, people act like she blew up. What happened to the album and the rest of the singles?

    As appropriate as it would be for Christina to tribute Mimi (since her influence is written all over Xtina), it will be a cold day in hell when that happens as they aren’t fans of one another. Mariah is over Leona too. Kelly Clarkson would have been a great choice, but since this is BET I am sure MC wanted to say away from pop/rock singers . Kelendria needs to sit down…

    For the guy who say mariah can sin her own s*** live. Mariah is 42 already she has been singing for mre than 20 years already and she might not sing perfect but her voice and her her range are still wayyyy better than any artist right now nobody can touch mc and shes 42 already plz ur just hater even her high notes are way too high for artist.. Finally their paying tribute to the artis who has inspire so many artist beyonce lady gaga rihanna alicia keys in every singing contest mariah carey its the one they always mention every singer wish and admire mariah care she inspires all singers she has broken so many records she has more #1’s than artist she is the best and finally she deserves this tribute only for legends and rihanna its not a legend or gaga or katy or beyonce..

    Wow! I was shocked at this choice for Mariah’s tribute. Kelly may find a Mariah song that she can make her own, but let’s be honest; Kelly would not be on anyone’s long or short list for a tribute to Mariah Carey. It’s clear this decision had nothing to do with who was best for the job. Either Mariah simply likes Kelly, no one else was available, or just politics/business as usual. I honestly thought it would be Karen Clark Sheard and Melanie Amaro. Yes! While Beyonce is Mariah’s contemporary, NOW, clearly she would have been an obvious choice just because of her strong voice and popularity. Oh well, we’ll see…

    i hope it is more than just one singer that salutes Mariah, like a key player in each genre would be appropriate (R&B, POP,JAZZ, DANCE, ADULT CONTEMPORARY, even COUNTRY, etc..) singing THEIR VERSIONS of MC classics..
    yes lets get PATTI & ARETHA !!! for starters… (SHE HAS A CONNECTION WITH BOTH)
    no offense to Kelly, but C’MON!!!

    Kelly Price—started her career as MCs backup singer
    Patti—Godmother and great singer who tributes everyone
    Alicia Keys– loving you from her debut sounds like vanishing
    Beyonce—she cites MC as an inspiration

    I like Kelly Rowland since her days in Destiny Child. She cannot or any other female artists cannot even compare to MC. Her style and vocal range is unparallel to any other female artists. Bey is a good singer with a mezzo soprano three octave vocal range but she couldn’t even do MC justice. Leona Lewis is a good singer too she sings a mezzo soprano vocal range also but she couldn’t do her justice either. MC has a five octave vocal range with the whistle register and is in a class all her own. You cannot even compare her with any other male or female artists past or present. The way she can hold one note for so long i have never seen another female artist do that. I think Kelly Rowland will do a good job because she can actually sing. A lot of so called artists these days cannot really sing in the studio or live.

    @GIRRRL
    Good List!!!! Apart for Beyonce, i totally agree with you! Kelly Price would actually be perfect. Orrrr could you imagne if they got Brenda K. Star! LOL >> Brenda would totally do it for the paycheque, but would be so bitter that MC did actually steal her job like she openly feared.

    I think BET’s choice would always be controversial, no matter who they went with. So they were trying to play it safe without being too safe. In all honesty, no one, and i mean not a single soul, is comparable to Mariah’s voice. Mariah’s voice is simply too unique to duplicate, Leona Lewis can’t do it, and she’s the only one who could even attempted it.

    Kelly will do a medley (she’s from Destiny’s Child after all, and we know that girl group is the commander of medley’s). What songs would everyone like to see her mesh?!?!?!

    To those of you, who say Kelly does Dance/electronic, you’ve clearly only heard her radio smashes. ‘Here I Am’ is chalk full of Mid-tempo and Ballads. You probably don’t know Kelly’s voice too well. Enough with this ‘Beyonce lead DC’ … OF COURSE! We know that, because that was the business Matthew Knowles was in. Making Beyonce a Star! There were in total 5 other members of Destinies Child and 4 of them are amazing, and unique singers that deserve much more from the business then they’ve got (Anyone know the story of the Supremes, same storey folks). Hell Michelle Williams is the one with the most unique voice, yet after she Broke the Dawn, where’s this girl at. Don’t be fooled by finance and numbers. Listen to the voices.

    All the HATER JUICE! It seems like people don’t know what makes a good singer. Tone, range, power and smoothness. Kelly has it all!!!! She isn’t always the greatest technically but when she belts those notes all have to back off!

    I think Kelly’s voice is far better than Monica, Brandy and all the rest of RnB singers probably except JHud and Beyonce the latter of which lacks her power but has far more vocal skill.

    Just watch When Love Takes Over – Starfloor, and tell me Kelly can’t blow!!!

    Kelly must be smoking because I ran into this video on youtube & without exaggeration, she sounded so incredible horrible. I know her voice wasn’t that bad when she was in Destiny’s Child, so she must be doing something wrong. Point is, she shouldn’t be tributing Mariah Carey, because for one they were at one point out at the same time, and Mariah’s voice is one of the most amazing voices ever in history & Kelly is no where near that level.
