Adele is a vocalist, a true vocalist and that's why she's sold so many albums. Her voice communicates in ways that other singers cannot. Do you think she's a greater singer than beyoncé or mariah carey today? Mariah can't sing and is horrible most of the time... and beyonce is overrated as heck. What do ya'll think, daydreamers and all?

Nope, her enunciation is bad. When Mariah properly cares for her voice, she still slay Ariana. On average though, Ariana sounds better purely because Mariah is lazy now and drinks too much.

 

*Edit: thought this was about Ariana. In Adele's case, no.

Adele can sing a decent melody within her comfort zone and do a bit of head voice notes. Other than that, she's ok. 

 

Beyonce could out sing her today, she has more range and power. Mariah in the 90's was great.

1. There is a vast difference between that of a singer and a vocalist.

 

A vocalist is a vocal artist/musician whom has studied the voice and developed it to that of a high technical standard, in similar ways to how an instrumentalist has perfected how to play a musical instrument. A singer is a standard interpreter of music and song. They have not developed their voice and built upon it to a high technical standard (be it in pitch & intonation; breath control & support; placement & projection; range building etc) however they do possess the ability to sing melodically and/or harmonise melodies.

 

The truth is that anybody can sing but not everybody can sing well, and this is why one being able to "sing with emotion" is not an objective component for one being able to sing better than another. One can yell/shout into a microphone whilst not being on pitch at all and have that be labelled as "emotional singing", whilst the other could be singing a slow-tempo ballad into a microphone with perfect pitch accuracy and vocalising the highest and lowest notes and have that be labelled as "emotionless or inexpressive singing".

 

Adele is, inarguably, a good singer and interpreter and she communicates her songs by her means which, to those whom are fans, remains very dear, however she is not a vocalist from a technical perspective.

 

2. Mariah Carey and Beyoncé are, by far, Greater vocalists than Adele - please do not make me elaborate on why for result of further embarrassmet on your behalf.

lmao, both Mariah and Beyoncé are miles ahead of her, it's not even funny how much better they are. She can't do half of Bey's vocal feats.

 

I would say she's just ahead of Rihanna. She's just more polished and now that she's stopped smoking she has more range than Rihanna.

So this, assuming of course you meant peak Mariah and not current Mariah :)

 

Adele isn't actually that impressive as a vocalist. She has a pleasant voice and emotes really well, that's about it.

Vocalist? No lmfaoooooooooooooo. Yes she sings better than Mariah now, but Mariah way back? Hell no. Adele as 4 notes she can sing the hell out of, but lacks range & lets not even get started with the technique, vocal runs, trills. Adele has a better tone than Bey but nah that's where it ends. Adele is pitchy, I've yet to hear Beyoncé hit a bad note in her whole career, plus her songs are harder than Adele's

Well current Mariah has abused what already was a fragile voice (nodules), so yes.

I don't get what the fascination with comparing 20 year olds to "Mariah Today!!1" It just doesn't make any sense. Yes, Mariah's voice has MAJORLY declined over the course of her career, and she's 1/100th of what she once was... And that's totally natural. La Divina, Maria Callas is widely regarded as the greatest opera singer, perhaps in history, and her prime only lasted about a decade (being generous), her voice was pretty much gone within the span of 15 years. Some people peak longer, some quicker, but age catches up to everyone, and it will to Adele, Demi, Ariana, or whoever the new "____ vs Mariah Today lolol" person is. Adele can't exist in the same room as Mariah circa the Christmas album/Daydream eras, so what does it matter?

On the topic of Beyonce, they're a better comparison since they're both mezzos, I believe. Beyonce outclasses Adele in every TECHNICAL aspect. range in both chest/mixed voice, head voice, coloratura, stamina... Dynamics in general, and that's not factoring in the "she can sing while dancing!!" aspect either. The only thing Adele might have over her for some is "tone"/"emotion", but neither of those have anything to do with "technique", which you yourself mentioned in the title.

Adele has a nice sounding voice, its pretty unique but Beyonce can use her voice to do crazy things and has a lot of power and Mariah same thing.

Yes, she's a better vocalist than Beyonce has ever been as is better than Mariah today. However, I think Mariah in her prime would be able to sing circles around Adele.

Better than current Mariah? Definitely.

Better than Beyoncé? No.

 

I can understand if someone says that they prefer Adele's voice and find it to be more pleasing for the ear, but Beyoncé is undoubtedly the more gifted, trained and versatile vocalist.
