    Looks like CNN wants all the praise to head Kelly's way. I don't blame them, Kelly's vocals are pretty ferocious.



    I'm hoping she at least wins 1 grammy this year. Her Stronger era has been doing pretty well.

    Cool it girl, I'm just venting about how universally loved she is here, despite the fact she gets her income off of remaking Since U Been Gone every few years and calling it an album. P!nk is in a similar position. The performance was cute, but if she wins any Grammy's against Florence or Carly we'll have an issue.

    Why would I be threatened by Belly Clarkson anyway?

    lmao. Aren't most pop artists the same way? It's a smart thing to do, they stick to what sells. For her third album she tried steering away from her formulaic sound from her previous records, and look how that turned out in terms of sales. Her best album, but lackluster sales. As a lot of you say in this thread, she still "slays."

    I'm not sure she if she did or not, but if she did, I have to say I'm disappointed. I don't get why some fantastic vocalists choose to lip synch instead of performing live. She has the vocal talent, so I really don't get why she'd do that for.

    well anderson cooper is a nut so idc what he says. and omg that psycho ***** new york is in your sig! i forgot about her existence

    and i kinda agree with aveil about kelly clarkson. I'm just not as vicious about it, but i think this thread holds her so high. don't get me wrong, i LOVE Kelly, but i think Beyonce is clearly better. she has better vocals and control and imo better songs. but i love both of them so I'm happy for both of them and their success

    Kelly pretty much destroys any of her contemporaries when it comes to belting out notes. She can hit and keep them sustained with extreme finesse. For example, when it comes to belting out an F#5, Beyonce only briefly touches the note and can't sustain it for long, while Kelly can sustain it for a while longer. As any vocalist will tell you, it's easy to hit a note, sustaining it is the hard part. Beyonce's is overall the better of the two when it comes to vocal acrobatics, though. Girl can do some heavenly runs to some songs.

    my musical knowledge stems from playing instruments, so i don't know so much about how vocals work, but what you said makes sense, and i guess it comes down to your taste. i prefer the heavenly runs over holding out a note. combine that with Beyonce's vocal range (e.g. "love on top") and you really got something. that doesn't mean that I've never belted to "since u been gone", "stronger", and every single in between

    I understand completely, I'm more of a high notes kind of guy. I'm not really a fan of runs because a lot of artists tend to overdo it, like Christina Aguilera. Her runs are a hot mess, but when she doesn't overdo them they are brilliant.

    O Christina, still bombing despite a great album.

    And if anything, Kelly is underrated. Remaking Since U Been Gone everytime? Have you even listened to all her albums all the way through. She's done some versatile stuff and Stronger was just a beautiful album when it came to vocals and all the things she tried to cover on that album. If she won a Grammy for it it would be well deserved.
    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes, confirmed.

    4. "Suit & Tie" - Justin Timberlake f/ Jay-Z (+80)
    5. "I Knew You Were Trouble." - Taylor Swift (-1)
    6. "Scream & Shout" - will.i.am f/ Britney Spears (=)

    *"Thrift Shop" is ****ing awesome!!! I think it'll remain at #1 for a long time, it's just starting on the radio.
    *Release that damn song to streaming already, Taylor (or her label)! IKYWT. will sadly miss #1.
    *Wow at JT jump, future #1?

    I have never heard this song, but hey, it got Bruno Mars off number 1. I really think Billboard needs to tweak their tracking slightly, all these songs spending weeks on end at number one is getting tiring and just seems odd considering how 2-10 fluctuate frequently.

    And so one of the most surprisingly amazing songs of 2013 begins its epic reign on the Hot 100. Can't wait to see how far it goes.

    4. "Suit & Tie" - Justin Timberlake f/ Jay-Z (+80)
    Really don't like this song, but based on its current iTunes position, I think that luckily this might be its peak.

    I usually have more to say about the Top 10, but other than TS taking #1 and S&T's jump, this week's Top 10 was kind of boring.

    i think the hype of a song reaching #1 causes radios to increase their airplay (to get more listeners) and makes more people wanna buy it, as a result, the song maintains a #1 reign. just a thought, though

    and like SC said, the top 10 this week isn't much different except for thrift shop and "suit & tie". I'm not sure how to feel about JT's song, considering I've only heard like 15 seconds of it, which is more than what i can say for our new #1. I'll give it a listen some day, just not this week

    I think suit & tie might reach #1 in a couple of weeks.
    Taylor swift would have done better if you could stream IKYWT on things such as Spotify without needing local files.
    Thrift Shop is a fun song and I think it's a good #1 single but I don't think he would get another hit from it unlike in Austrailia with Same Love.

    Bey's superbowl synch in a week. Anyone excited? I was convinced that she would have dropped some single/album information by now.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    The shade! The NERVE!!

    I also don't think that kelly's overrated. I mean, I never listen to her music but I understand that she's well liked without being praised as some sort of legend or second-coming. Her reception's pretty mild tbh.

    I haven't really taken to it much but it's still nice. It feels a bit too sugary for my liking. BUT IMAGINE WHAT HE'S DOING ON ARTPOP.

    Oh and suit and tie was a bit of a let down. I appreciate the attempt at reintroducing R&B which beyonce's probably going to try and do too, but ignoring the genre the song itself was underwhelming.

    You know I'll be standing guard in case Kelly & Michelle try to get on that stage. She could be waiting until the last day or so to try and maximize sales, but I'm starting to worry about her comeback.

    R&B is dead in the 2010s. It was thriving in the 90s and peaked in the 00s, but now its at an all time low. The only black females to have Top 10 singles since 2010 are Nicki, Rih and Bey (in Telephone no less) and that speaks volumes. The only reason Bey can still sell is her massive fanbase.
