    JANet wishes she could do half of what kelly did

    • E Jai March 16, 2020

      Um…Janet sounds better…..if this was a Kelly song… definitely wouldn’t have been a hit!

    • Kenny March 16, 2020

      Kelly wishes she has Janet’s career

      • Yo March 16, 2020

        Janet wishes she had 10 percent of Kelly’s vocal ability and could sing live. A singer verses a dancer.

    • Jameson March 16, 2020

      Utter nonsense. Janet is a showman & destroys all stages. Kelly stands there with solid vocals. Boo hater.

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 16, 2020

        Laughing at somebody who has been on the charts for 14 weeks , while ur faves hasnt seen the inside of the chart since November 2019.
        Almost 4 months straight .

        U see whyi call u a dumb àss.

      • Only Facts March 16, 2020

        Girl you said the song was going to be her third #1. You keep setting that girl up for failure. All you’re getting from me. Mwah ?

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 16, 2020

        Dont make false accusations without receipts
        Dumb àss.

        U still haven’t answered my question, where is normani on the billboard hot 100.

        Show me normani on the billboard hot 100,

        “All you’re getting from me”

        Gurl you’ve said this several times, but here u are perching under my comment like a vulture just like ur faves normani who is eating Camila’s left overs Austin Maloney.

  6. E. March 16, 2020

    I like Kelly Clarkson but I’ll stick to Janet’s version.

  7. IG: mixedboy March 16, 2020

    That was a good rendition!

  8. Swamp dog March 16, 2020

    Say what you want about Janet’s vocals she took it straight to the Bank that’s where it counts.

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 16, 2020

      Everything isnt about money tho.

      Kelly and janet are two different artistes.
      Both have strengths and weaknesses.

      but it’s a bit weird when another artist sings ur song better than u.

      • Swamp dog March 16, 2020

        Matter of opinion everyone has one.

      • Bridgett March 16, 2020

        Im throwing up and can u please tell kelly to stop wearing those grandma gowns on tv…….just loose the damn weight or find a better place to shop for her size

  9. Only Facts March 16, 2020

    I love kelly

  10. Nicky March 16, 2020


    MOM takes a tumble when her crazy fan said it will be Havana ?????

    Notice when Normani came out solo camicky has struggled to get a hit ?????????

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 16, 2020

      And that’s why normani is dating Austin Maloney, Camila’s left overs.

      Ur faves is eating Camila’s left overs.

      I will give u 50 bucks if u can show me a normani song on the billboard hot 100.

      • Nicky March 16, 2020

        But Normani had a solo hit where are Camickys during campaign ??!


      • Clarks0o0ñ March 16, 2020

        U said normani was gonna end Camila in 2020 but here we are in 2020,

        Normani eating Camila’s left overs.

  11. Bridgett March 16, 2020

    Trash…everyone can’t sing everything….and that was not the song to try to test.. Don’t do that again Kelly…leave that song to MS.JACKSON!

  12. Erica Hawthorne March 16, 2020

    I love Kelly, but this is a no for me. One must have a certain amount of s** appeal and rhythm to successfully pull off a Janet Jackson cover ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️

    • Bridgett March 16, 2020

      Damn right

    • Fancy BISH March 16, 2020

      Oh hell to the no, she was just doing her Kellyoke, there wasn’t a DROP of sexx appeal hunnie ? It was cute, but not Janet cute ? This was something clean for the kids ? Family show teas!

  13. Yup! March 16, 2020

    Sorry Kelly Bigboned Clarkson, I don’t like the hardness of the vocals for this song. IF is suppose to be s*** which certainly was not the case in this rendition. Meh, I guess she was only having fun though paying homage to the Queen, no harm in it.

  14. Paulo March 16, 2020

    A vocal queen recognizing and paying homage to a legendary queen. I love it ???????????

    • Shayla Queen ? March 17, 2020

      And said by a bitter desperate Queen wearing his heels while dancing along in his room like a pathetic nobody.

      • Paulo March 17, 2020

        Oooh CoronaShayla… ? I’m the bitter one, huh? Sure. Have a seat and wash your hands #Shower4Shayla

  15. eric March 16, 2020

    I like Kelly, but this was the wrong song. She would’ve done better with something like “Black Cat”.

    • Michelle March 17, 2020

      I agree

  16. The Truth March 17, 2020

    It has no soul. Janet sounds better and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis band sounds soulfoul too.

  17. Woah Vicky March 17, 2020

    When an artist sings better than the original… haha let’s face it, if these two were unknowns, and you saw them sing for the first time.. Kelly would blow her away, sorry but music is for the ears. If Janet sang on the streets, you’d walk straight past her, even if the mic was on… which is rare for her.

    • High Price March 17, 2020

      Nah…. Janet’s sound is more popular than ever now… Ask Jhene aiko, H.E.R, Queen Naija, Teyana Taylor, Tinashe. .. and that’s just to name a SOME…. many of your top vocalists are not belting out like that. And besides all of that, Janet has a unique sound. I think she’d turn heads on the street.

      • Woah Vicky March 17, 2020

        Lol Janet’s sound? Seriously weak ass vocals is Janet’s sound. Funny people hate on artists with weak voices, but you’re flipping it and calling it Janet’s sound.
        Taylor can ousting Janet lets be real. Also she sings live

  18. Shayla Queen ? March 17, 2020

    Just AWFUL!

  19. Trapp March 17, 2020

    Well I figure a stank Troll would go there….still Love Janet that much more….sorry, You Lose?????

  20. Liam March 17, 2020

    This was a dope cover and spin to the original. Janet is prob smiling at the tribute I like that Kelly introduces new and old songs to her target audience

  21. G-bby March 17, 2020

    Kelly can blow but I wasn’t too fond of her rendition. Not many can pull off a Janet song. Her unique, soft, sensual vocals and approach are hard to duplicate. Say whatever you want about Janet, but she had a distinct voice that worked for the material she sang. Everyone isn’t a belter, and everyone doesn’t want to hear big voices 24/7.

    And FYI Janet has sang live LOTS of times throughout her career. She still sings her ballads and mid tempos live.

    This was 100% LIVE and she destroyed it.



  22. paul sakajian March 17, 2020

    SHE DID GREAT!!!!!

  23. Swamp dog March 17, 2020

    Janet’s sound is the reason she is still around decades later and more in demand than ever..

  24. LadyTina March 18, 2020

    Alright Kelly!
