    No thanks. She has zero soul and her voice is way too weak in my opinion

  3. XtinaTheDiva May 24, 2014

    Wooow,Alexandra sounds great! I didn’t know she has so many power in her voice.

  4. Jamie May 24, 2014

    People really need to stop trying to come for Ms. Houston’s crown, for it’s on her head in heaven while she watch you try.

      Mariah can’t sing anymore though and her new album 6/10. But hey just putting this out there, can I blow you?

  8. IStanForYourFav May 24, 2014

    Great cover! She seems to have vocally grown and she looks amazing.

  9. JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 24, 2014

    All these covers keep on proving how perfect Whitney Houston was. Once in a century pop singer.

    • Stephy Tha Lambily May 24, 2014

      Yes Whitney is untouchable! Btw I Love you John. Seriously!!!!

    • Truth Teller May 24, 2014

      Mariah is a studio singer that is it! Lol @ someone saying Whitney wasn’t a good live singer #DEAD. These lambs are so delusional til they believe their own lies. Mariah has been lipping since 1995. Whitney sang “I’m Every Woman” live Several times on TBG tour and hit that same note she hit in the studio.

      No Whitney and Mariah are not equal,Mariah’s vocals on her albums (including the new one) are HEAVILY produced and manufactured, something she has been dong since the 90s.

      Equal? Shid, Whitney is in a class of her own. Mariah cold not hang with Whitney on WYB live or recorded and Mariah was still suppose to be in her prime.

      Anyone knows Whitney’s prime voice would outsing CeCe, Yolanda, and anyone else, but Mariah, she has been ousted too many darn times

  10. lambily May 24, 2014

    She is not untouchable, she is only the ORIGINAL, anything whitney do, Mariah cOULD do with her thinner vocal chords+More…. And don’t tell me Mariah was only whistle, whitney could NEVA sing Forever or ATYNAF(without whistle) whitney raised her larynx over E5, gosh Lorde go to E5 🙂 and she was touchable, Tessanne Chin- I have nothing on the voice was identical or even better + Charice killed Whitney moment in time……. No one cover Mariah Songs and get praises….. That’s why all through Charice time she only covered “hero” and it didn’t hold a candle near mariah’s 1996 live version. So don’t give me no “untouchable” crap.

    • JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 24, 2014

      So uncalled for! Whitney was everything, it´s not just the range or the notes. Mariah is too in her own way. But we are talking about different things.
      Whitney is THAT singer. Everything.

      ps: don´t forget to buy Mariah´s new album next week. It´s amazing.

    • Touché May 24, 2014

      The way I see it is like this.

      Low register:Both

      Mid belts: Whitney

      Upper belts: Mariah

      Head voice: Whitney

      Whistle register/tones: Mariah

      They were pretty much equal because they dominated in several different areas; neither one is completely beneath or above the other so there is no need to discredit.

      • lambily May 24, 2014

        BTW…… Mariah literally breath low notes….she goes lower than male “E2” She wins that. Your other logics are right though, whitney head voice is divine 🙂

      • Touché May 24, 2014

        Mimi has a tendency to lower her larynx when reaching those low notes so no she is not better than Whitney in that area.

    • Sleazy May 24, 2014

      Mariah doesn’t bring it LIVE for me maybe in studio she slays but whitney brought it all the time besides mariah can’t sing anymore! Whitney has a POWERFULL voice her tone is much richer I have nothing or I will always love you NO ONE has ever came close to whitney versions NOT even mariah can sing those songs Mariah whistle was the only good thing bout her but she sounds like a whale to me

      • lambily May 24, 2014

        Mariah BRANG it live in the 1990s and in 2001-2003….. She been there and done that, did you know its forbidden to lip at the grammies? Well remember Mariah in 2006 grammy? She belted a G#5 she is not a whistle artist like Minnie Ripperton she is a ALL IN ONE….. You should look at Mariah Carey-Hero live 1996 or Mariah Carey-I stay in Love ama 2008,,,, she doesn’t have to whistle you p**** d-_-b you acting like whitney died with a good voice….Come better…..

      • IStanForYourFav May 24, 2014

        @Sleazy Chill. Whitney is not good live. She’s been shaky from day one. She lipped her I’m Every Woman higher belts and gave shaky performances post 1994. Her sharing the stage with CeCe Winans showed that… No shade, but rich tone, she can have that, but powerful voice I guess in prime. She can’t sing anymore. Whitney’s vocals were over processed on her last tour and album yet she still didn’t sound decent. She is not the greatest. CeCe, Patti, Jill, Yolanda, and a few others have extremely powerful voices that outbelt Whitney on her best day.

    • IStanForYourFav May 24, 2014

      Lol you commentsis pure ignorance. Mariah is pop and Whitney is soul. Neither are untouchable as both sound NOTHING like they once did. I bet you’re not a true Lamb. You’re a troll trying to see Mariah dragged through the mud and through the rain.

    • Truth Teller May 24, 2014

      She could out do? Too bad she could not out do her live. Mariah’s voice claim to fame is all in the studio. There was nothing about Mariah’s voice that was better than Whitney’s. Whitney’s headvoice was more dynamic and beautiful than Mariah’s airy, flat whistle.

  11. Molly May 24, 2014

    Not here for Ms.6k

    • RihIcon(Navy Comm) May 24, 2014

      Girl…….

  12. Touché May 24, 2014

    Alright, alright this is cute! She is gorgeous by the way.

  13. Truth Teller May 24, 2014

    Lies Lies Lies! Name me one singer who can sing a Whitney Houston song? Charice? LMAO, with her flat voice and lack of soul and emotions? B**** u tried that. There are several girls I have seen (not even professional) singing Mariah’s songs JUST LIKE HER AND SOUND JUST LIKE HER, find me one who sounds better than or equal to Whitney.

    Go look up on youtube of Mariah’s songs under “Mariah covers” and you will see the long list of chicks sounding better than Mariah

  14. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 24, 2014

    @TRUTH TELLER

    BITTCH YOU TOLD NOTHING BUT LIES!

    First of all, do not say, “these lambs are delusional” when only ONE PERSON said that shiit. I have mad respect for Whitney. So does Touche, JohnVidal, Dossome, and the REAL MARIAH fans on TGJ!

    Secondly, how dare you try to say that people on YouTube are singing Mariah’s songs better than her?!? That is a damn reach! No one can sing Mariah’s songs. It has been proven on all these reality singing competitions that the contestants should stay away from Mariah songs because they are damn near vocal suicide! Just watch Jessica Sanchez singing “My all” on American Idol and then check her out singing “I will Always Love you” and try to tell me she didn’t have a much more difficult time singing My all than IWALY! Mariah is nowhere near Whitney as a performer. Whitney is a queen on the stage. She owns the stage like no other diva. However, Mariah May not be a great performer but as a vocalist she is superb. Even Whitney herself has spoken highly of Mariah. Beyonce, Brandy, Christina, Jordin Sparks, Rihanna, Leona Lewis, and Ariana Grande praise Mariah as a huge influence on them vocally. If she was no vocalist then today’s singers wouldn’t look up to them the way they do!!!

    Thirdly, Mariah has most definitely proved herself as vocalist outside of the studio multiple times, even in 2013. Mariah’s high notes are no where near being “flat and airy”. Watch her Emotions performance on MTV unplugged. In fact, watch that entire Unplugged show and come back here with your pressed ass and try to deny her vocal abilities. That LIVE album remains the best selling live album of all time and her MTV unplugged remains the biggest one of all time.

    In addition, I do agree that Mariah vocals TODAY sound overproduced and a bit manufactured but certainly not her vocals in her hey day! Watch her Daydream tour (Tokyo Dome and Rotterdam specifically) and Madison Square Garden and then come back with that BS. Mariah is a phenomenal vocalist and she still is today when she gets enough vocal rest. Also, you prove that you don’t know shiit about Mariah with the When You Believe reference because Mariah was most certainly NOT in her prime that year like you stated. Mariah’s voice deteriorated after 1996! WYB was recorded, released, and performed in 1998/1999. That was pretty much the peak of Mariah’s vocal decline.

    I don’t appreciate you people coming on this site and others trying to downplay Mariah’s talent. When Mariah’s first televised performance aired she slayed. It was a basketball game and the players and everyone were in shock at her vocal abilities. The commentators were even saying “the palace now has a queen”. Her 1992 performance of if it’s over was incredible as well.

    You really need to have a seat somewhere trying to generalize the lambs like that! Whitney and Mariah are both great in their own right and y’all need to understand that not everyone thinks Whitney is the best ever. Some people will say Mariah, the same way some people will say Celine! Their voices are very unique and they have their special areas that they slay in! I’m still dying @ you reaching with that studio vocalist non-sense you must be Mark111 under a different name. Btw, The whistle isn’t “the only thing impressive about her voice” either. Mariah’s voice is out of this world…. And like I said she has proved that on and off the stage. I suggest that you educate yourself about her before you try to make such a foolish statement becaus you just end up sounding like a bitter bottom who just got cheated on and dumped.

    • Truth Teller May 25, 2014

      Ain’t nobody reading all of that. Are you on payroll? Anyhoo. Ariana Grande MURKED Mariha’s “Emotions” but she epically failed singing “I Believe In You & Me” and “I Have Nothing”. Go look on YT and search “Mariah Carey Butterfly” and see how many covers you see of young girls sounding JUST LIKE MARIAH,and these girls are LIVE while Mariah’s was studio.

      I can find a 1000 Mariah Carey’s vocal wise but you WILL NEVER find a Whitney Houston, it’s just the damn truth

      • JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 25, 2014

        Stop it!You are pressed and 99% of the people in this post were praising Whitney Houston.
        @slayriah spoke the truth in that long ass comment 🙂

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 25, 2014

        Like I said, look up Jessica Sanchez struggling with My all and then watch her slaying I will always Love you + receiving standing ovation. First of all. Ariana Grande didn’t “murk” Emotions. It was obviously done in the studio. She couldn’t do it live and she can’t even execute the notes live. The fact that you’re trying to make it sound like Mariah’s songs are baby food is Beyonce me when professionals and her counterparts have been praising her for years. And Whitney herself doesn’t sound exactly the same way she does in the studio as she does on stage. Even if YOU watch her IWALY performances and listen to the studio version you’ll see the difference. Especially with the belts, they are more sustained in the studio than live. An no one said that there aren’t other gifted singers out there. There are people on YouTube and singing comps who are singing songs like ‘All the man that I need’, the Greatest Love of all, and ‘I have Nothing’ yet you wanna call out Mariah because other people sing their songs well! Lol you sound stressed. At the end of the day no one can sing their songs better than either of them. NO ONE!

        At the end if the day, your opinion is irrelevant because she still influenced 94% of the girls who came after her. And she’s still making list of best singers/vocalists of all time. Now goodbye with your pressed ass.

  15. Truth Teller May 25, 2014

    Mariah ain’t NEVEA had a live performance that surpassed her studio vocals…NEVER! She is a studio singer, where she is comfortable using studio mechanics, layering, copy and pasting vocals and shid. That ain’t no real singer. I know nough about Mariah to know she is not in a league with Whitney or Celine because live, they are leaps and bounds ahead of her. MiMi can join Madonna and Britney as the world’s biggest lip singers

  16. Sleazy May 25, 2014

    Fact remains Whitney >>>> Mariah and her Whale register oops I mean whistle!!!! We all know Mariah for touching up her pics exposing her assets Whitney will forever be queen people barely care about Mooriah who going thru image problems

  17. Voices May 27, 2014

    Whitney and Mariah are both incomparable legends, but their time has passed. Can we please get back to Alexandra? Girl’s got a voice on her!
