Christina Aguilera Performs At Timberlake Concert

Published: Sunday 24th Oct 2010 by Sam

Pop star Christina Aguilera took to the stage at last night’s ‘Justin Timberlake & Friends’ concert in Las Vegas. Preceding her performance of ‘Beautiful’, the soon-to-be-divorced diva was introduced by Timberake as “with no competition, the best singer of our generation”.

Her performance after the jump…

Though Timberlake’s comments are open to interpretation, it’s hard to deny Christina’s vocal prowess. That said, this performance didn’t particularly move me. Yes, it was was technically quite sound; however Aguilera has performed it markedly better on many an occasion. Still, it can’t be that bad when you’re primary point of vocal comparison is yourself, can it?

Your thoughts?

    “The Biggest Flop of the this generation”

  4. Ladia Yates October 24, 2010

    That was actually pretty good, simply because the fact she actually sang the song and didn’t overdue it like she does in the other performances of this song.

  5. KARMA October 24, 2010

    Multi-platinum, five time Grammy award winning artist Christina Aguilera is one of the most successful recording artists of the decade. She has sold over 46 million albums worldwide and is the only artist under 30 to be named by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 greatest artists of all time.

  6. November is flop month, let the show begin October 24, 2010

    She might be the biggest flop of our generation but she is indeed one of the best voices of our time. Like it or not.

  7. Trevor October 24, 2010

    Can I just point out how amazing she looks? She looks so pretty and its good to see her back on stage!!!!

  8. Miss Chick Boom October 24, 2010

    “with no competition, the best singer of our generation”.

    PUH-LEASE

    Xtina>>>>>>>>Beyonce, Jill Scott, Kelly Clarkson, Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, and I can go on.

    The only reason people say that Xtina is the best singer is because of her tone and power which is a waste because she doesn’t even know how to use it. If Xtina had better Technique and didn’t try to oversing everything she touches that JT would be right.

  9. Boricua October 24, 2010

    She sounded offputtingly slower than the music.

  10. Miss Chick Boom October 24, 2010

    ^^^^^

    Xtina<<<<<<<<<<<<<<Beyonce, Jill Scott, Kelly Clarkson, Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, and I can go on.

  11. Topman October 24, 2010

    @Miss Chick Boom
    Your greater than sign is the wrong way round but I agree, just because people keep saying it doesn’t make it true!

  12. Ghislaine October 24, 2010

    Any of you critics ever had to perform while presumably under considerable emotional stress??
    I found it astonishing that she would be performing at all …
    … like a boxer stepping into the ring, with the boxer knowing that all the world knows that ‘home sweet home’ is no more.
    I have loved Christina, I do love Christina, and I will continue to love her till Hell freezes over, so I just wish I could have been there – and, since I couldn’t, I am happy to at least having been able to see it this way.
    Know this: She will never have to stand alone!!!

  13. THE_M_C_FAN October 24, 2010

    i thought she sounded good, not her best performance by a far.
    i wish everyone would stop calling her a flop. every artist goes through their flop album at some point of their career. all her other albums were certified either platinum or multi-platinum except for the last one. i’m just glad she’s back performing!

  14. Topman October 24, 2010

    Also, in this photo why is the image in the mirror different to what it should be reflecting?

  15. Soul Girl October 24, 2010

    soul singing is not just the way you scream..it is a culture………..now as far as white singers……teena marie and joss stone are the only white female soul singers……….hell we don’t even look at teena as white…she is a sista!

    all the others are plain imitators including………christina………just bcuz u scream and wave you hand in the air……….does not make you a soul singer…. and when she sings it comes off as she is acting rather than actually feeling the emotion…..christina is not soul in anyway shape or form..period.

  16. HeLLo October 24, 2010

    LOL Joss Stone and Amy WInehouse being better ahhahahahaha

  17. Ladia Yates October 24, 2010

    @Soul Girl

    That was right on the money. I never understood why people considered her to be a soul singer when in fact she is a soul imitator. I like Christina and her voice but she is no where near soul.

  18. C-mo Love October 24, 2010

    I just don’t understand why everyone has to say that they are the best…why can’t they just say one of best? I am not sure anyone would disagree with that statement. Why can’t it be a “Court of Pop” Musicians? Everyone trying to compete for a title that doesn’t exist. Just make good music. It is a blessing to have a platform to spread a good message. Down with all the elitism.

  19. GangsterA October 24, 2010

    oh please justin tell a better lie i did liked the peformance tough

  20. Sarah October 24, 2010

    Christina is not a soul singer. Never have been and never will be. She’s a wannabe R&B/soul singer.

    Once again vocally the performance wasn’t that good. LOL @ Justin Timberfake saying that Christina has no competition. Really, genius? Beyonce, J-Hud, Leona Lewis, Fantasia, etc, can definitely give her a run for her money.

    I can’t stand it when people say crap like that, just like a did with a certain diva back in the 90s but her other competitors gave her a good run for her money.

  21. Imperfected Beauty October 24, 2010

    I think it would be epic if Christina, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Leona Lewis, and Jennifer Hudson all came together and did a song.

  22. Trent Is The Moron October 24, 2010

    Depends how u classify “generation”. If you mean within last few years like 5-6, then yea u could say that. However, most people classify a generation of singers as an era which usually means 15-20yrs. In that case there are tons of divas in various musical genres that out class Xtina by far and still do. Gospel singers are totally underrated yet they can blow as good if not better than commercial singers like Floptina. Note that most great generation singers are from a gospel backgrounds… Whitney, Aretha, Tremaine Hawkins, Patti Labelle, Gladys Knight, and the list goes on. They all can still blow better than Xtina. Just cause they’re not the flavor of the day and dont do atm POP music doesnt mean they cant blow all the current singers out of the water. What happens when u have 20’s somethings who run a site who have no sense of true musical history and what it means to be a real sanger. That includes Justin Timberlake who’s a fool to make that statement but being that it’s a concert setting, I take that to mean more of ass kissing than historical or vocal context. Truth!!

  23. Imperfected Beauty October 24, 2010

    @Sarah

    Mariah or Whitney?

  24. the kiddz October 24, 2010

    LMAO! I expected nothing less from “The Noise”. Strained, forced, struggling for breath, the same Vision of Love runs everytime. Christina needs to be locked in a padded room listening to nothing but Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, and Barbra. Barbra Barbra Barbra.

  25. Jasmine October 24, 2010

    Justin has said this about a lot of singers so I guess everyone he likes is the greatest. Good for him, I would say the same thing.

  26. Soulful Roses October 24, 2010

    I thought she was amazing, just for the simple fact she sang. She didn’t overdue it with the straining and runs. When shes not showing out, she has great performances. Like that “Lift Me Up” performance she did for the Haiti benifit was beautiful 🙂

  27. DANA October 24, 2010

    YUP,The greatest. Stay mad,uglies!!

  28. a October 24, 2010

    I like her music and all…

    but I get a bit tired of the way she use to sing, those runs and all…. too often

    I think thats one of the things the general audience dont like anymore.

    Just a thought.

  29. Speechless October 24, 2010

    You mad Trent? Cuz I sure dont hear Mariah singing like that anymore 🙂

  30. Pierre October 24, 2010

    @Soul Girl

    Xtina has got the same amount of soul if not more as Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Teena Marie, Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, Billie Holiday, or any other black singer from that period.

    And JT is right, Xtina is the best singer of this generation by miles and IMO she is the best singer to ever touch the mic.

  31. Sarah October 24, 2010

    “Xtina has got the same amount of soul if not more as Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Teena Marie, Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, Billie Holiday, or any other black singer from that period.”

    ROFLMAO! Get the f*** out of here! You need to be b**** slapped and then thrown in traffic for that ridiculous comment! LOL!

    @Speechless, this thread was created by Sam not Trent and Trent has given Christina plenty of props on her vocal abilities.

  32. SparkD October 24, 2010

    I’m not offended. I disagree, but Justin has always said this about Christina Aguilera.

    And who mentioned gospel singer Tramaine Hawkins? Tramaine and Whitney are my favorite singers of all time.

  33. Pierre October 24, 2010

    @Sarah

    What was ridiculous about my comment? Just because Christina is white doesn’t mean she doesn’t have soul. Soul is not a black thing and anybody could have it. Christina has got more soul than a lot of black singers like Beyonce Rihanna Brandy Monica Alicia Keys and Estelle. And I also think she is up there with those singers I named if not better. That is my opinion.

  34. Trevor October 24, 2010

    I said it before CHRISTINA AGUILERA & BEYONCE KNOWLES are the Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston of this generation

  35. SparkD October 24, 2010

    Child! Chrisette Michelle and Melonie Fiona will sing Christina Aguilera underneath a table.

  36. SparkD October 24, 2010

    Trevor, you are lying. There isn’t a Whitney or Mariah of this generation…This is no Hero, Greatest Love Of All, One Moment In Time or Vision of love coming from Beyonce nor Christina.

    The closest thing Christina has is Beautiful. And Beyonce is more like a merge of what Diana Ross and Jennifer Lopez used to be with vocals in optimal condition. That’s all!

  37. Dunster October 24, 2010

    Beyonce, soul? now thats funny. I own all of Beyonce’s albums and she lost what little soul she had in the first.

    Although i do disagree with you with the list. Joss Stone and Amy Winehouse can sing but they’re imitators, why, because they put on a voice to sing. Amy winehouse, Joss Stone and Adele all dont sing from their natural talking tone, the put on a voice to sing, the others don’t and neither does Christina, Whitney, Mariah, and so on

  38. Pierre October 24, 2010

    @SPARKD

    Are you serious?

    Chrisette Michelle voice stays cracking and she’s got no range. She needs to go back to being a back up singer.

    And who is Melonie Fiona?

  39. theman October 24, 2010

    Xtina is the best singer of this generation, many people oversing but her voice is the best from this generation. Beyonce’ does’nt even qualify. She has somewhat good technique but lacks the tone,range and power. She’s not even one of the greatest. Jeniifer to me is a great power singer. But Xtina can do it all. Justin was correct in what he said. She has a tremendous voice.

  40. Miss Chick Boom October 24, 2010

    @Dunstar

    You don’t lose soul. Beyonce still has soul she is just not singing any songs that really require her to be a soul singer. She is doing more poppy stuff now.

    And I wasn’t basing it off of soul I was basing it off of singing ability.

  41. Blasian October 24, 2010

    Every Big Event or Performing in front of World Leaders WHO is ask to Sing?

    That is ALL

  42. Blasian October 24, 2010

    Beyonce is the Voice of this generation FACT

  43. Miss Chick Boom October 24, 2010

    @THEMAN

    Beyonce “lacks the tone,range and power”

    you gotta be kidding.

    Beyonce has gotten one of the most widest ranges of her generation. Christina has a wide range as well but she loses control of any note after Eb5. Beyonce’s tone is pure and flawless. And I will agree that Xtina’s voice is more powerful but Beyonce also has a powerful voice and she knows how to use it unlike miss screamalotina

  44. Dave October 24, 2010

    Christina is that b****, & that’s just it.

  45. the kiddz October 24, 2010

    @Pierre

    “Soul is not a black thing and anybody could have it” – Then why do you mention the fact that those artist are black? Soul is not limited to a certain genre or race. You obviously have no idea what soul is. Adele is soul, Lauryn Hill is soul, Teena Marie is soul, Amy Winehouse is soul. Christina? Not so much. Just a cheap imitation of the real thing. And to think you said she had as much soul as the Queen, Aretha. PUH-LEESE!

    @Dunster

    Then you haven’t heard Beyonce live, if you think she has no soul.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEmYZ6enOyQ

    That is just a taste my friend.

  46. SparkD October 24, 2010

    @Miss Chick Boom – Beyonce lost her soul, just like Whitney did, but Whitney would return back to church in her live performances.

    Beyonce’s voice is in optimal shape. I don’t like her tone, because it’s not dark and rich and beautiful, but she’s so well-trained, and skillful, that she’s improved her power and lower register to compensate.

    Christina’s tone isn’t beautiful like Mariah’s and she lacks consistency, but she is a fantastic singer. I just think some people forget we have Pink, Joss Stone, Vanessa Amorosi, Kelly Clarkson, and Carrie Underwood who are awsome vanilla-soul singers, who can sing with soul too.

  47. lola October 24, 2010

    Miss Chick Boom I definitely agree with you! And I agree with the people who say that CHRISTINA IS NOT A SOUL SINGER! It really frustrates me how many of her white fans are so quick to say that she has so much soul in her voice just because she has an “urban” sounding voice at times. I can’t stand Christina’s arrogant and hypocritical a** worth a damn, but I can admit that she has an amazing voice. It’s just that she over does it all the time and this performance was horrible. It was very boring and I HATE WHEN SINGERS TRY TO SHOW OFF THEIR VOICE OR EMOTION BY DRAGGING OUT THE DAMN NOTES! STOP SINGING IT SLOWER THAN THE ORIGINAL, YOU SOUND STUPID.

    White singers like Joss Stone, Duffy, and my girl Amy Winehouse have the soul tone, vocals, emotion, and music down pack! Justin, Christina Aguilera is not the best voice of our generation, Amy Winehouse is and nobody should criticize her because of her drug use/problem. I also love Leona Lewis’ voice! I hate how people act like she has no soul just because her vocals are professional and she sings straight pop music when I’ve actually heard her sing her own renditions of a couple of R&B/soul singles and her voice was so smooth, sultry, crisp, soulful, beautiful, powerful, and light. I have to research those singles again. Leona Lewis is definitely at the same level of Christina, she just hasn’t had a single were she could let her vocals loose!

  48. Memoirs of an imperfect angel October 24, 2010

    Christina is not a good singer at all. Justin must be smoking crack.

  49. lola October 24, 2010

    Oh and are we forgetting how great of a singer Pink is? She’s at the same level of Christina as well! She has a very Rock/Soulful voice.

  50. Blasian October 24, 2010

    Like I said at EVERY big event who is ask to Perform Beyonce or XTina ?

  51. the kiddz October 24, 2010

    @SPARKD

    Beyonce has not lost the soul, neither has “The Voice”. Where are you getting such far-fetched ideas? Soul isn’t about based solely on the church. It’s about expression and musicality and these two women are phenomenal at that. You might not like her tone, and that’s fine. But, her lower register is deep and resonant (much more than Christina who has to vocal fry to get to her low notes).

  52. Blasian October 24, 2010

    Beyonce “lacks the tone,range and power” ? WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING?
    Beyonce has tone, range, power and CONTROL something Christina lacks

  53. Miss Chick Boom October 24, 2010

    @SPARKD

    Whitney returned back because she never LOST her soul. She just was singing more Pop Ballads. Beyonce is the same way, she hasn’t lost her soul, she just sings more pop songs that don’t require her to be a soul singer.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpW6RxXSIK4

    Beyonce can still sing soul if she wanted to.

    I remember watching an interview with the first guy who signed Destinys Child and he said the only reason he put the girls in vocal training was so they could work on there breath control. He said when he first saw them Beyonce stood out and her voice was powerful for her age. I hate when people try to use vocal training as an excuse for why Beyonce can sing.

  54. SparkD October 24, 2010

    @The Kiddz – When Clive Davis got ahold of Whitney, her technique improved, but she sang her music much differently—including leaving out emotions and depth on studio performance that couldn’t translate live. Beyonce does not have the same soul she had in 1998 when Destiny’s Child were “nobody’s” from Houston Texas.

    And yes, Beyonce has STRENGTHEN her lower register because she lacks natural richness. I’M UPSET WITH CHRISTINA because it appears she has vocally regressed. XTINA always had an issue with control, like other power singers (Jennifer), but she has other things vocally that could have placed her on the Mariah/Whitney level. Oh, well…that potential and those days appear to be gone.

  55. Pierre October 24, 2010

    @The Kidz

    Christina Aguilara’s voice is much more full and powerful than Aretha’s voice over was. Aretha may have a lot of soul but Xtina shits on her in the power category.

  56. SparkD October 24, 2010

    @ Miss Chick Boom

    I NEVER said Beyonce couldn’t sing. I’m from Houston, and was a fan when everyone gave TLC and others attention over DC.

    Beyonce was singing in all types of events and talent contest, so she would have the best trained more powerful voice of the members. And let’s get real, Bee’s voice wasn’t the same 6 years ago. She always had the ‘runs” but her tone was not rich and dark, and by Beyonce studying and working on her lower register and other vocal techniques, she learned how to compensate for what God didn’t give her.

    Christina naturally had power and “runs” but she had no control. At times she still had no control, and originally I felt she had the most potential of all the pop singers that came out of the 90’s, and it seems Beyonce and Christina are the only two left.

  57. Dave October 24, 2010

    DEAD @ Christina is not being a soul singer. Tell that to Etta, Patti (Soul Singers themselves) & the rest. She doesn’t have to have technique, she can strain every day of the week & that’s why you will not know what a soul singer is. It’s not about the technique, it’s about singing from the soul, conveying emotion, & singing with your heart. Christina does that, it’s perfectly obvious. Just like her performances of “Hurt”, “Oh Mother”, “Understand”, etc… & her tribute & rendition of “It’s A Man’s World” >>>>>>>>>>> She may not be the VOCALIST, technically of this generation. But, she is the VOICE! especially lyrically & musically. & anyone who thinks Beyonce has soul, *laughs* nothing else needs to be said.

  58. Dave October 24, 2010

    She’s been hurt through relationships, childhood (being bullied by jealous girls), went through a abusive relationship between her mom & dad. I think this woman would know soul, & that’s what she sings about.

  59. Dave October 24, 2010

    *completely agree’s w/ @Sparkd *

  60. princejg October 24, 2010

    is it me or has her voice gotten alot heavier/darker ?still a great vocalist I love her

  61. XTINA IS AN ICON HERE IN THE UK & WORLD WIDE!! BITHES!! October 24, 2010

    SHE SOLD MORE THAN 46.000.000 ALBUMS AND 3 SOLD OUT WORLD TOURS 45.000.000)(115.000.000)(98.000.000) FOR A REASON> SHE IS THE BEST VOICE OF MUSIC INDUSTRY!!! THAT IS NO ONE OUT THERE WHO CAN DO WHAT SHE CAN WITH HER AMAZING INCREDEBLE VOICE…

  62. Sarah October 24, 2010

    @Pierre,

    Your comment was utterly ridiculous. You think Christina has soul? Fine. But for you to sit here and state that her soul is on the same level, if not better than Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Teena Marie, Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, Billie Holiday, etc is a pure joke. That would be like me, being a huge Mariah Carey fan, stating that she has more soul than Aretha Franklin, Chaka Kahn and Gladys Knight. Do you know how idiotic that would be? There are some things that are just not true, and you making that inane comment is definitely one of them.

    Christina is like Mariah. She has a soulful tone in her voice based off of some performances, but she isn’t a soul singer. However, I can’t deny that she has that soulful tone. All someone has to do is watch her grammy performance of James Browns “It’s a man’s man’s world” at the 2007 ceremony.

  63. SparkD October 24, 2010

    @PIERRA

    Christina has had so many vocal injuries, she couldn’t have Aretha’s power if she wanted. And please don’t tell me you’re comparing Christina at her peak to Aretha—-Lord, help you!

    Unlike Beyonce, who had a classical vocal trainer as a child until the DC break up, Christina damaged imitated Mariah and blues singers, using her voice the wrong way. Beyonce’s vocals were protected until early adulthood, until she found a another coach who can take her voice to another level.

    Xtina has had big vocal injuries before 25.

  64. SparkD October 24, 2010

    Let’s give Christina credit. Who could sing James Brown like she did at the 2007 Grammy’s?

    I’m glad she found her own voice during The Stripped era—when she didn’t sound like a Mariah wanna-be.

    I just wished her team cared more about her voice, than trying to capitalize off the late 90s/early 00’s pop era—-Xtina was rushed into the Spanish market, and so much more.

    I am still sold on the song YOU LOST ME, which was amazing!

  65. Dave October 24, 2010

    DEAD @ imitated Mariah’s vocals. Thsi what I don’t get. If Mariah is a amazing singer, w/ technique & soul, & Christina strains & doesn’t have soul, how could she imitate Mariah? That’s contradicting. Christina having soul I guess is debatable to certain people depending on their preference & definition. But by Christina’s voice & what she’s went through & what she has done by her & by me, she has soul. & by millions of others too. I’ll end it @ that.

  66. Pierre October 24, 2010

    In my opinion Christina is more powerful than Aretha Franklin and you know what I think she has more soul too.

    Yeah, I said it. It’s my opinion so deal with it.

    And to all you pressed Beyonce stans. To be honest Beyonce can’t sing worth two shits. Her nasally weak voice is nothing compared to Christina. Keep comparing her to b****** that are on her singing level like Rihanna.

  67. SparkD October 24, 2010

    @ Miss Chick Boom

    Growling is not soul. And I didn’t get any emotion out of that performance “All I Do Is Cry,” it was theatrics and drama.

    Christina Soul > Beyonce Soul

  68. FUTURESTARdelux October 24, 2010

    1. THAT WAS A F****** AMAZING PERFORMANCE, ALL YOU DESPERATELY PRESSED HATERS MUSTE BE SO UPSET AFTER ALL THE TRASH YOU’VE BEEN SHOUTING ABOUT HER LOSING HER VOICE BECAUSE OF A COUPLE OF “OK” PERFORMANCES LOL XTINA SLAYED AND NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT.

    JUSTIN IS RIGHT, XTINA IS THE GREATEST SINGER OF HER GENERATION HANDS DOWN. IF YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT SOUL I AGREE THERE ARE SINGERS LIKE JOSS STONE (WHO I LOVE) AND AMY WINEHOUSE (WHO I LOVE) WHO HAVE MORE SOUL THAN XTINA BUT THE DISCUSSION ISN’T ABOUT BEING A *SOUL* SINGER IT’S ABOUT BEING A SINGER IN GENERAL. WATCH XTINA PERFORM “THIS IS A MANS WORLD” AT THE GRAMMY’S AND TELL ME SHE DOESN’T HAVE SOUL AND I WILL SPIT IN YOUR FACE FOR THE BARE FACED LIE YOU JUST TOLD ME.

    ARETHA, WHITNEY, MARIAH, XTINA ARE ALL THE VOICE OF THERE OWN GENERATION AND I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHY PEOPLE BRING BEYONCE INTO THIS? NONE OF HER PERFORMANCES SEEM LIKE THERE’S ANY ROOM FOR SPONTINAITY OR ANYTHING SHE IS LIKE A ROBOT TRYING TO SING EVERYTHING PERFECT BUT I’M NOT INTO THAT, I LIKE MY SINGERS TO JUST GO CRAZY SOMETIMES. XTINA HAS A WIDER RANGE AND MORE POWER THAN B, I AGREE B HAS GREATER CONTROLL BUT SHE TAKES LESSONS AND THAT IS WHAT COMPENSATES FOR HER LESSER VOICE IF XTINA GOT LESSONS SHE WOULD S*** ON BEYONCE MORE THAN SHE ALREADY DOES VOCALLY.

    AND CAN WE STOP HATING ON HER JUST BECAUSE ONE ALBUM FLOPPED? HOW IF YOU’RE GONNA DO THAT CAN YOU SIT AND PRAISE ARETHA (*BOWS DOWN TO THE QUEEN*) WHEN HER LAST HOWEVER MANY ALBUMS HAVN’T EXACTLY SOLD EVEN AS MANY AS “BIONIC”? IT’S NOTHING EVERYBODY HAS A FLOP AND ALL THE BEYONCE STANS NEED TO WATCH BECAUSE FOR ALL THE S*** THEY THROW AT OTHERS WHEN BEYONCE’S FLOP COMES THERE ARE GONNA BE A LOT OF PEOPLE READY TO TALE THE P*** BACK AND THEN WHAT WILL YOU SAY?

    P.S AGREE WITH @SOULFUL ROSES, THAT PERFORMANCE OF “LIFT ME UP” AT THE HAITI TELLATHON WAS SO F****** AMAZING, I LITERALLY CRIED WHEN I HEARD THAT LMAO

  69. Sarah October 24, 2010

    @Dave,

    Christina did in fact do a lot of Mariah imitating at the beginning of her career. She admitted that Mariah had the most influence of her vocal technique, and even went as far as copying Mariah’s hand movements in many of her performance in which she continues to do today. If I were you, I wouldn’t look at that as a bad thing because it wasn’t like Christina being compared to Mariah was a bad thing. She would rather much had been compared to Mariah than Britney Spears.

  70. XTINA IS AN ICON HERE IN THE UK & WORLD WIDE!! BITHES!! October 24, 2010

    JUSTIN YOU ARE RIGHT . THERE IS NOT COMPETICION XTINA IS THE BEST SINGER IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY.. SHE IS BRILLIANT!!!

  71. annie! :] October 24, 2010

    yeah she’s a good singer, but definitely not the best… most of her “singing” is just yelling and it kinda gets annoying after a while. she definitely has A LOT of competition like Beyonce, Leona, etc.

  72. SparkD October 24, 2010

    @Dave Christina imitated a lot of Mariah’s runs early in her career. Even the end of The Voice Within sounded like Mimi. Yes, she has a soulful tone. I’m just mad that she regressed, but given her circumstances, I won’t hold it against her.

    And The Voice Within was during the Stripped era, when Chrissy found her voice outside of being a blues-loving-run-singing-Mariah-wannabe-with-a-Latina-name.

  73. annie! :] October 24, 2010

    powerful doesn’t always equal good… yelling is not singing.

  74. Pierre October 24, 2010

    @SPARKD

    I see what you are saying now.

    Although I do think Beyonce’s voice is better I have always said that where Beyonce lacks is where Christina Sores and Vice Versa.

    If you were to put these two together you would have a modern day Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston.

    @Pierre

    Stay Delusional.

    @Dave

    Patti Labelle or Etta James have never acknowledged Christina’s vocal ability or ‘soul’. But Patti, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, Anita Baker and a lot of other legends have had nice things to say about Beyonce’s talent.

    Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Billie Holiday, Beyonce, Christina Aguileria, Melanie Fiona, Chrisette Michelle, P!nk, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Teena Marie, Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse…hell, all the singers that were named above are drowned in talent! Why are we penning them against each other! Its already bad enough these b******* record labels are saturating the industry with non-talented hacks that have no business with a microphone, but yet you all are sitting here arguing talent over talent..GIVE ME A BREAK!

    @Miss Chick Boom

    Why so mad BITCHHH???

    LMAOOO even tho Justin had a duet with Fatyonce, he STILL sayin’ that

    ” Christina is the BEST singer of our generation + WITHOUT COMPETITION ”

    HA!!!

    Jealous much, biyatch?

    And Screaming and Waving your hands in the air doesn’t count as soul either.

  82. Daniel October 24, 2010

    celine dion is actually the best ever singer theres ever been. Her voice is angel lke.

  83. Miss Chick Boom October 24, 2010

    @Daniel

    Celine is in the top 10, but she is definitely not the best ever.

  84. SparkD October 24, 2010

    @Daniel

    Celine Dion has an ugly tone.

  85. Daniel October 24, 2010

    @Miss Chick Boom. pffffffft shes miles better then anyone else…. you watch this youtube clip… especially the last 90 seconds.. …it gives me chills everytime.. shes doesnt scream never the vocals as all the other singers do

  86. Nadjee October 24, 2010

    @90s baby

    I have always thought Beyonce’s soul is showcased most when she is singing more funk songs like Work it out.I want her to do funk/hip hop album again like B-Day but I want it be little more Funk and a little less Hip hop this time.

    Anyways, this performance was alright, nothing special. And I wanna know what Justin was smoking for him to say something like that.

  87. Mr.M October 24, 2010

    Your mother is in the top 10? b****?

  88. Sarah October 24, 2010

    Yeah. My top 3 female singers from the last generation in order: Mariah, Whitney and Celine.

    Randy Jackson stated that all three are the greatest singers of all time.

    Top singers of this generation: Christina, Fantasia, Beyonce, Pink and I get the feeling that I’m forgetting someone.

  91. Daniel October 24, 2010

    CELINE DION is the greatest singer ever… does she ever shout/scream the songs? NOOOOOOO Does nearly every other singer do it? YESSSSSSS

    @Nicky

    See, people keep saying that. But they always leave out the fact that Beyonce had to hold back vocally because of the character she played.

    But thats your opinion.

    And your a Rihanna stan so…

    “Beyonce can outsing a lot of singers who are considered singers.”

  95. NICKY October 24, 2010

    DO YALL UNDERSTAND WHAT OUR GENERATION MEANS???? LMAO

    WHY ARE YALL MENTIONING CELINE DION!?!!! READING IS FUNDAMENTAL!!!!!

    OUR GENERATION IS ARTISTS IN THE 18–30ISH AGE RANGE.

    YOU MUST HAVE FORGETTEN ABOUT THE SCREECH FEST THAT WAS THE HORRIFIC “LISTEN”

    SHE TRIED TO SCREAM AND YELL ETC…..IT WAS HORRENDOUS! ONLY JHUD HAS THE POWER TO MOVE YOU LIKE THAT…..

    HENCE WHY JHUD GOT STANDING OVATIONS IN MOVIE THEATRES

  97. iLoveXtina October 24, 2010

    For those asking what was Justin Timberlake smoking before he introduced her as “…the best singer of our generation”, isn’t that’s his opinion? We all have our own, but he’s def. not the first to call her that. Don’t be mad.

    Now this performance was NOT my favorite. But the fact that she sang ‘Bionic’, ‘NMT’ & ‘Ain’t No Other Man’ (all up-tempo songs) before this, we should cut her some slack.

    I do agree that she needs to do some vocal training if she plans on touring during the next few years.

  98. Traci October 24, 2010

    who can sing better than her right now in the game? EXACTLY

  99. kris October 24, 2010

    You stupid b****** watch yall mouth dont try to play the Queen of pop = BEYONCE she will outsing any woman in the music industry today and thats A fact.. she is a rare breed singers like x-tina and jhud lack alot of control something that the queen has 🙂

  100. gabriel October 24, 2010

    AMY WINEHOUSE FRANK? THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST SOULFULL CDS I OWN. XTINA Cant touch that.. JOSS STONE HAS A HORRIBLE voice too.. can’t stand her.. XTINA screams her way through songs.. shes straining most of the time.

  101. baby October 24, 2010

    u ppl should seriously shut ur trap n get a life

  102. SparkD October 24, 2010

    Kris, Xtina has has a lot of damage. But imagine if Jennifer Hudson trained her naturally “big, soulful, and large range” voice to the skillfulness Beyonce has mastered. I would be afraid.

    Beyonce has mastered her craft, and edges Jennifer only in technique, although many would call Jen the better singer—that’s debatable. But IMAGINE if Jen worked on her craft for a year—-THAT WOULD BE A MONSTER ALL GREAT SINGERS SHOULD RUN AWAY FROM.

    Jennifer still has a lot of potential, because has improved from American Idol, but still needs to control her power and develop more technique. XTINA might be too damaged to do that.

  103. SparkD October 24, 2010

    @NICKY Beyonce didn’t hold anything back on Listen…She’s all skill and technique…but lacks soul, emotion, and natural fullness. That’s why she had to growl in At Last to add depth, because she lacks that in her tone. She’s skillful enough to know how to compensate for what she lacks.

  104. SparkD October 24, 2010

    Oops…my last comment was meant for @Nadjee

    And Fantasia is a raw breed. She another MONSTER who hasn’t reach her vocal potential.

    Beyonce is at her peak. Jennifer and Fantasia hasn’t even peaked yet.

  105. jojo October 24, 2010

    sorry u people are dumb as hell if u think beyonce is a better singer than christina justin timberlake is correct…………..beyonce cant sing live christina but christina can sing like beyonce…………………..ITS NO COMPITION LIKE JUSTIN SAID AND AS OF TODAY BEYONCE IS MORE POPOULAR THAN CHRISTINA BUT AS A SOLO ARTIST BEYONCE IS ABOUT 20 MILLION RECORDS BEHIND MISS AGUILERA! AND CHRISTINA ONLY HAS 4 ALBUMS !!!!!!!!!!!

    I LOVE BEYONCE A LOT BUT BE REAL CHRISTINA IS A MUCH BETTER SINGER

    BEYONCE IS THE QUEEN BUT THEY ARE BOTH LEGENDS!!!!!

    she may get on my last nerves with her stank a** attitude..BUT

    I do agree with Justin..christinas voice cannot be duplicated…Its that good..

    she does have one of the best top 5 voices in our generation, (i’m 23)

    now, come on, yall think joss stone amy winehouse sings better than xtina?
    hell, i wouldnt say beyonce sings better either..

  109. P.T. October 24, 2010

    Sometimes Christina over sings a song but that is what a lot of her fans want to hear. Show off or not…….. how many out there can do what she does with her voice. All of you are right about there being many voices out there that that can be ranked with the best of them especially if you consider them in a specific genre. I like them all but one thing Christina does to everyone, including all of you is she makes you have an emotional response. Isn’t that what art is suppose to do? I love to hear and see her perform but I also like all the others mentioned all for different reasons.

  110. Nadjee October 24, 2010

    @sparkd

    I don’t think Beyonce is at her peak yet, because the fact if you notice her voice gets deeper and darker with time but I do agree with you to some extent. If Jennifer got some training she would be a beast.

  111. intellione October 24, 2010

    why does this girl OVERSING everything? paleeze she is FAR from the best singer of this decade, Maybe in that white world of JUstin T R&B but their are so many TALENTED known r&B singers that BLOw ms. screw for track aguillera out the water that its not even WOrh mentioning…

  112. intellione October 24, 2010

    honestly KELLY PRICE can sing the Pants off this chick if u check her new single “TIRED” u will hear some REAL SOUL singing….Aguillera can sit down and WiSH she had the control and skill…

    @INTELLIONE

    You are so right. I can’t believe I forgot about Kelly Price. I love her and her voice is just so beautiful

  117. g October 24, 2010

    Winehouse has more soul in her pinky than xtina.. lol. Please compare their first two cds… YOU SENT ME FLYING? MOODYS MOOD FOR LOVE? ROUND MIDNIGHT? YALL MUST B CRAZY.. IN MY BED? JUSTIN SHOULD NO BETTER.. XTINA has a great voice her material is very weak though..

  118. theman October 24, 2010

    Kelly Price is an amazing singer but she goes over the top as well. Some people are just upset because Beyonce’s voice lacks the raw power of Christina and Jhud. Both are far better singers than Beyonce could ever wish to be. Beyonce is a very theatrical vocalist, and uses alot of vibrato. She hollered her way thru that B-Day album talking about she was doing things with her voice that she has’nt ever done before, well i missed the memo. Beyonce has’nt ever really been a great vocalist, good yes, great no. Her voice is very nasally, and sounds one dimensional. She tried her hardest in Listen’ to use what power she had to rival J’Hud’s And I Am Telling You’. It just did’nt measure up. JHud hit all the notes when it was needed. Beyonce has a little sould, but i would’nt call her a soul singer.

    She was only called a great vocalist because most of the people that came out or up with her in the mainstream department of music are not impressive singers. Beyonce does’nt have those vocals that moves me. She may have a great number or two here and there but her performances are her bread and butter. She gets screechy sometimes also. Xtina can do so much more than Beyonce, as well as having more depth than Beyonce. Her voice has so many textures and colors to it. Xtina has showcased many excellent vocal performances where she has sung with out all of the extras. She can be a technical singer when she wants to. Sometimes Beyonce screams to. Beyonce is nowhere near Xtina’s level vocally. Leona is good but she lacks something. She sounds like a goat sometimes in her upper register. She’s a really good singer, but thats it. Nothing Interesting. Mariah and Whitney are the best period, but i think they are talking about artists that released music 99-2010. Amy Winehouse has sould and is a good singer but thats it. Joss is very soulful as well and is a really good singer. But Xtina leads the pack, hell even Adele can blow, and so can Duffy, most of them are better singers than Beyonce. Beyonce’s tone is not very settling and smooth, She has sorta like a high pitched nails on a chalkboard tone.

  119. theman October 24, 2010

    Also, Beyonce sings technically well, but her range seems very limited, it’s almost like one note without any progression. When Xtina ssangs you can hear the range, you can hear the transitions. You can sing techinically correct, but if it’s just the overall voice period Xtina is worlds better than Beyonce. Xtina tore Herbie Hancock’s Song For You’ up. That was technically incredible, Beyonce could’nt touch that with a ten foot pole. Xtina and Beyonce both sung Etta James classic and Xtina owned it, i felt like Beyonce was just singing it. Xtina brought the power,emotion,soul,range,color and passion to that song. Beyonce just sung it very basic and bland.

  120. mik3ch3ck October 24, 2010

    Just read lots of your comments ya’ll! And to me Justin is kinda right! and Xtina got soul.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncVjoLudggE

    That’s been some years since that performance, and i still can’t help but watching this today! Walk Away is the best song chrissy ever recorded. Just love it!

  121. daboss8791 October 24, 2010

    Justin loves to give Xtina her unwarrented props for some odd reason. She is a better vocalist than most of the “singers” who are coming out. But she tends to scream her way through a song. I liked “not myself” but everytime she performed it live, I could barely understand what she was singing. JMO

    SPREAD DA WORD AT SPREADDAWORD.COM

  122. daboss8791 October 24, 2010

    Oh, and since we’re talking about vocalist who can sing live, Marsha Ambrosius kills! She has a melodic vibe to her voice that doesn’t require music. I heard her sing live without back-up singers and was surprised at her range. Very beautiful voice, also her new song I hope she cheats on you is bananas!

    LIKE I SAID WHO’S ALWAYS SINGING AT BIG EVENTS BEYONCE OR CHRISTINA.

    BEYONCE HAS THE TONE, RANGE, POWER AND CONTROL WHICH CHRISTINA ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE FEMALES IN THE GAME BEYONCE CAN MOVE AROUND AND JUMP UP AND DOWN AND STILL SOUND AMAZING . CHRISTINA CAN’T

  124. Pretty Boy Swag October 25, 2010

    @THEMAN

    True, but Beyonce voice only become nasally and screechy when she belts. I honestly think Beyonce isn’t a belter and shouldn’t attempt to be one. Beyonce should stick to singing in her mid and lower range because that is really where shines most and where she gets most of her resonance at. Gladys Knight was not a belter either but she utilized every bit of her mid and lower registers and is one of the greatest singing divas ever.

  125. Pretty Boy Swag October 25, 2010

    And Beyonce has a wide range as well.

    Bb2-F6 to be exact

    Bb2, B2, C3, C#3, D3, Eb3, E3, F3

    Upper Chest/Belting Register

  126. Mo’ October 25, 2010

    Christina is on the same level as Whitney and Mariah

    While Beyonce is on the same level as singers like Monica and Aaliyah who are good singers but nothing special.

  127. Ladia Yates October 25, 2010

    You say she does nothing but scream on BDAY? Are you serious? Lets break it down:

    The starts of each song is calm and emotional as the song gets to the end of bridge when she starts belting all that Eb5 it’s like she’s letting out all her anger and when she hits that Bb5 it’s like she’s screaming in frustration and as the song comes to the end she starts belting again and the she hits that F5 and then the song just goes calm again Its thrilling.

    That’s what was so great about her vocals on B-Day.

  128. Ladia Yates October 25, 2010

    my comment directed towards THEMAN

  129. Chimier October 25, 2010

    Some of you have absolutely NO idea what soul is. Having soul isn’t just about emotion, it’s also music based: building gospel-style vocals over blues chord progressions. Christina is neither a truly emotional singer or a musically rooted one, so no, she’s not soulful. Anyone who oversings as much as she does is just interested in showing their voice off, not necessarily interpreting the music how it SHOULD be. And no, soul isn’t a black thing, but Christina doesn’t have it. And her voice is getting worse. This performance is proof, as is her performance of Fighter from the same night.
    And she’s NOWHERE near the level of Whitney and Mariah. Do you know how much climbing she’d have to do to get there? Let’s just say it won’t be enough. The Voice and The Songbird Supreme>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>infinity>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Christina.
    End of.
    Let’s hope Christina has a good ENT specialist.

    FULL OF S***! Eb6, E6, & F6 are exclamations for her live s***! E6 was sung in studio on “Happy Face” Christina range is A2-C#7, & C3-A6 live. Beyonce’s range is not limited, but it ain’t as big as a few notes you included towards the edge of her range.

  132. Dave October 25, 2010

    DEAD @ Chimer. It (he/she) does not even like Christina Aguilera @ all. Comment voided! DEAD @ Not just about emotion (it deals w/ emotion), wtf… is soul then? dead @ not musically rooted, have u heard of her early childhood repertoire? Clearly you’re hating…

  133. Pretty Boy Swag October 25, 2010

    @DAVE

    Yes you are right those are exclamations. There is a possible chance though that she can sustain those notes, I’m not saying she can but if she really wanted to she probably. good.

  134. theman October 25, 2010

    Beyonce is best in her mid range, when she belts it sounds forced. No one would talk about Beyonce if her fans did’nt constantly bring her name up into other peoples storys. Yes Beyonce is a superstar, but theres no need to make mention of her in each post. Isn’t the AMA’s a big musical event ? Xtina is performing there without a hit song on the radio right now, that speaks volumes about her stardom and musical talent. Beyonce is a decent/good vocalist but thats it. She can’t do all the incredible things that Xtina can with her voice. Lol at people saying that Beyonce’s screaming on B-Day was her showing emotion, well the same could be said for other female artist to then.

  135. True October 25, 2010

    @ THEMAN

    I agree with most of what you said. I have been saying the same thing for years! Beyonce is a technically good singer but, her voice is screechy at times and alot of the “emotion” sounds forced (like that irritating growl she does throughout the ‘Cadillac Records’ soundtrack). People tend to forget that a “BIGGER” voice does not always make someone a “BETTER” singer.

    @ BLASIAN?
    Beyonce is THE BIGGEST name in music which is why she is always invited to sing. Do I think she can sing? Yes. Is she the best? No. She has more Grammys than any female in history right? Does that mean that she is a better singer than ALL of them? Hell No! Grammys don’t mean a damn thing anymore. There are numerous people with no singing ability with a grammy.

  136. theman October 25, 2010

    Oh and one other thing Beyonce has talent. She can sing. I’m not one of those people that have to knock someone just to bring someone else up. Beyonce’ is the overall package because she can do everything well. As far as other artists not dancing may’be that isn’t their thing, where some may dance others may write,produce and or compose and arrange, different strokes for different folks.

    Sorry Grudge-Tina, That Pic looks nice though… 🙂

  138. S*** October 25, 2010

    @ Miss Chick Boom & the Xtina Stans

    Dont be confused, Make no mistake Beyonce’s Voice/Vocals are infact more powerful. Xtina can Scream until shes Blue in the Face, Never confuse that with True Vocal Power, resonance & prowess. Lets be clear that Strain-Tina is ALWAYS singing OUTSIDE of her True Range, her True Comfort Range. Bey’s comfort Range is her entire 3.5. Xtina’s true Comfort Range in in the 2nd Octave & in low & falsetto notes…

    Anyway, She always sounds throaty like shes being Strangled by a Cat. I take it she doesnt watch many commercials cause if she did shed know that LESS IS MORE.

    Yes Xtina CAN sing her ass off no Doubt but Beyonce is just the much Better vocalist with in my opinion the better voice.

  139. S*** October 25, 2010

    As a Matter of Fact, Even if Xtina got vocal Training by none other than Beyonce herself, Beyonce would still be the better singer excelling in almost all vocal attributes & thats just my full honest opinion…

  140. S*** October 25, 2010

    @ Mo’

    Beyonce is on or close to the same level as Whitney and Mariah

    While Xtina is on the same level as singers like Monica and Aaliyah or just a little Better..

    THERE, MUCH MUCH BETTER 🙂

  141. S*** October 25, 2010

    While Xtina is on the same level as singers like JHud & Leona…

    lol! anything can happen when Justin’s overdosed! not gonna deny she’s got ONE OF THE best voices ever… but Justin is just speaking to himself. and i’m not wrong.
    and people should already forget about her deserving-to-be-on-history-books FLOP, it can happen to anybody.

  145. vegasgirl October 25, 2010

    Thank you @ROBIER, miss X-tina was off during parts of that performance. That’s bound to happen when an artist sings live. And what makes Justin Timberlakes opinion any more important than anyone elses? Dude can’t sing anyway so……

    Of course he is going to say that about Christina because they are “peers” and that is how Christina’s team has chosen to market her throughout her career. Christina does have a fantastic voice but I don’t agree with the “voice” of our generation thing. But that is my opinion based off what I like.

    And the debate about Beyonce being able to sing is a stupid arguement. Of course she can sing, that really isn’t debatable. Whether you enjoy her voice or vocal styling is a different matter but I can’t imagine anyone is serious when they say Beyonce can’t sing.

    Well… at least she didn’t shout and holler this time. But yeah, this still wasn’t very good. Normally she never sounds strained unless she’s screaming, but now it’s like further proof that she’s losing her range. She just needs to utilize techniques that will favor her voice better, and she’ll be perfect. It can’t be hard to do, after all, it’s not like she lacks a great voice.

    Oh, and as for the soul argument… soul has several meanings, so I don’t know if y’all are talking about having emotion or singing in the style of soul singers.

    Why are the clowns up there trying to knock Beyonce? Beyonce has got great technique and PLENTY of soul…Arguably, one of, if not THE best of the generation. She has a voice and knows how to use it. However, that doesn’t take away from how IMMENSELY talented Xtina is. People say she oversings, but I love it when she goes all out and puts on a show. Beyonce and Xtina would kill a duet together.. Don’t get mad because these ladies snatch wigs, lacefronts and weaves off your favs!

    xtina has the [best voice of her generation,], of couse.

    this performance is good becaus she put her recent emotion in it. she just couldn’t control her feeling.

    Imma make it short:

    Xtina >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Beyoncé. Always been like that and it will always be.

    Don’t compare a unique voice and talent like Christina to an ovverrated b**** who got fans who dont know nothing about music, especially soul music.

    Beyoncé is the black britney. Bad Music but it sells because a lot of people are stupid in this world.

    That’s it, Bye!

    Glad to see people are opening their eyes on this product called “Thiefyoncé.

    She sounds horrible in these two clips. It sounds like shes losing her voice.

    OMG! You Xtina fans/stans are amusing! To argue who has more soul is debatable because only the person who listens can determine that, however, if you people actually comprehended true vocal pedagogy, it would be not argument as to who has the better voice. Clearly Beyonce>>>Christina! There should be absolutely NO argument whatsoever about this. I don’t like Christina but she had immense potential but she ruined what could have been an amazing voice!

  154. Jerome October 25, 2010

    This actually wouldn’t be the first time she had this praise. Celine dion have said it, Patti Labelle had said it, Simon Cowell had said it and I can just go on. Now I don’t belittle your preference or your supposed “knowledge” about vocal prowess and s***, but you’re not saying that you know better than the people mentioned, are you?

    Couldn’t agree more!!!

    By the way Monica is a better singer than Beyonce, she has a better tone. But Xtina got this. Beyonce does’nt belong in the same breathe as Mariah/Whitney she’s nowhere near them. Not even in the running……

    YALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND THIS IS WHO CHRISTINA IS…

    TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT…

    STOP TRYING TO CHANGE WHO PEOPLE ARE…

    Im a fan of good technical singing and Xtina just doesnt have that….YELLING, with NO CONTROL at ALL is what she does. She attempts RUNS that just go NOWHERE but leave her short of breath which i have actually witnessed myself seeing her live. This girl needs to go back and REGROUP again and consider more INDEPTH voice TRAining. I admit some R&b singers do yell when they sing however they exhibit CONTROL and are able to recover with good tone, this girl lacks that. She has talent but needs to work on it more to reach the Voice levels of Whitney, BEyonce, Aretha, etc…. It confuses me as to why she has not mastered her voice after years of being an entertainer

    I don’t think she can hear herself well. You can see she’s touching her ear, where, in all probability, her in-ear-monitor is. And if you can’t hear yourself singing, it’s impossible to sing flawlessly.
