      Rihanna could never do something like this and this was great, Rihanna practice a song and that’s how you get it, this was live, I mean real live with no backtracking!!!! If Rita is horrible what is Rihanna?

    Although i don’t like Christmas songs, why, why, why, why in Mariah’s voice she has to cover a song of one of the greatest singers of all times, she knows she won’t make justice to the song not even make it sound cute, just horrible.

    I liked their energy and spirit. I prefer the original version by the Christmas Queen herself or even the resent “Fallon” version over this. Too much was going on in this performance, imo. On a more serious note, congrats to Mimi and her newest peak with AIWFCIY! Truly deserving for the modern Christmas classic.

    give me a damn break. She sounds good (of course it’s not perfect but it sounds decent) and this is coming from someone who doesn’t care for her or like her music. I know you some of you stans on here want her to fail so bad but get a grip.
    & before another rihanna stan tries it (like flopron), rihanna could never.

        anyways i don’t stan for rita but i’ll give credit where it’s due and she didn’t sound bad at all. I’m just surprised RIHANNA stans are in here saying she sounds bad that’s all.

        I actually agree and no, I’m not a Rihanna stan.

        The problem is that majority of the new Navi weren’t around when everyone dissed Rihanna to dirt supporting Beyonce when she first came out because Rihanna was seen as Beyonce wannabe. It wasn’t until GGGB and Umbrella when she solidified that she was there to stay and found her own niche that her base started growing. Now that Rihanna has an ever-growing fan base and is very popular, they see Rita as a copy-cat (what the Hive saw back in the day) so everyone attacks Rita. It would be ironic if Rita makes it big……..it’ll be Beyonce-Rihanna 2.0 all over again.

        And I do want her to succeed but I also want her to find HER OWN style and attitude instead of swagger-jacking others.

    This is why Rita is a flop. Her stans encourage her to do s*** like this.

    Rihanna is a superstar, but since when does that make her the benchmark for singing. I never hear ANY OTHER STANS SCREAM “YES, MY FAVE SOUNDED BETTER THAN RIHANNA!” the way Rita stans do. You would swear Rih was Whtiney houstoun or something.

    Rihanna would never do this s*** in her professional career because she has sense. He-ta however, does not, and thats why she is a flop.

    Come on guys, she did good, but those other “people” (who must be the D list singers) was just BAD! Oh and I get why the other post is Rihanna doing a MC cover, trying to say that Rita did better then Rih… even tho Rih was at a high school talent show, but it’s cool, she can sing 1 of her 12 #1’s hits or 1 of her 35 top 40’s, Dose Rita when have a top 40? That should be so easy for a chic doing pop in the US. Oh and side note, even MC can’t even sing her own damn classics without sounding like s***, lol.
