    John sounds good but Ariana really pales in comparison to Celine.

      How is she trying to be Celine? The girl is remade a song that Celine sung originally. Why are people so negative

        Because Ariana has impersonated Celine. However she fails in comparison to Whitney with that soulless attempt at IWALY and she has said she lost her voice or strain it trying to sing Emotions by Mariah live.

      The last true huge ones were Mariah and Celine. But I agree Xtina and Beyonce (Gaga and above all Adele given her success I suppose) would be the nearest thing to that level since then. Lately, there just haven´t been vocalists with mainstream success. Just no (I´m not counting the countless imitators or singers with zero artistry).

    I’ll never understand why some Stans lie to themselves…just because you’re fan of someone doesn’t mean you have to be biased and like everything your artist does.

    I don’t like Ariana and John together for this song, they don’t blend. John’s voice isn’t smooth and forceful like Peabo or Luther. Nor is Ariana like Celine or Mariah. Yes the two of them can sing however just because you both can sing doesn’t mean you’ll blend well.
    The song is a *No* for me

        How does me not liking a song make me a hater? It’s a personal opinion, which I’m entitled to. The world does revolve around your ideology.

    Sounds great, the girl can sing. What the stans of the old and played out comes in hating. If your old ass fave still had a voice, maybe they would have been invited to sing instead.

    Doesn’t sound bad but when greatness was the original, of course people will compare. That being said I prefer the Celine’s. This sounds forced.

    That Ariana is no Celine Dion we all know it. She lacks all types of personality and soul in that voice of hers. However, she still sounds good here.
    The true news is that Celine Dion has actually recorded a NEW song for this new live action version. I´m not expecting anything stellar. But hey, something from a true great at their 50s is better than something from a never was? in their 20s.

    People need to get out their feelin’s and realize that not everyone is going to like this song! It’s not an insult to Grande or Legend, they can sing, yes, but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea!
    People need to understand what harmony and melodies mean and what it means to blend. Example: Usher and Beyoncé; the song “My Boo” was originally supposed to feature Bey but he swapped her for Alicia because Bey and Usher lacked vocal chemistry. Another example would be “Titanium” by David Guetta and Sia, Mary J Blige was originally pinned to do the song but David didn’t like the final product so he asked Sia.
    Some people have gotten so tone deaf they have fogetten what harmonies and melodies are supposed to sound like.

      The voices on the original never blended. The song suppose to have two very different tones. I never heard of Beyonce being up for my boo, it doesn’t even make sense because Usher and Keys were on the same label. These stans already made their minds up that they didn’t like it before then even heard it. It’s hating.

    Can everybody just wait to hear the final product before giving their “constitutional” opinions??? Of course the original was great, but can we give new girl and John a fair chance. #thatsall
