Female Popstars Named Best Live Performers

Contributed by MariahsMan:

North American DJs have voted for their favorite live performers of all time in a survey conducted by Radio First. Britney Spears and Madonna were amongst those acknowledged. Bartel from WPYO in Orlando revealed that his favorite performance involved “ in leather doing ‘Would You Mind’ over a guy who was strapped down on a bed.” Other Djs praised such artists as Celine Dion and for their performances at the 2001 ‘Tribute To Heroes Benefit Telethon’. Erik Bradley from B96 in Chicago also chose Carey as one of the greatest live performers. “Bringin’ On The Heartbreak from her tour is pretty amazing,” he said.

    The best singers I’ve seen perform live are Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera. They both had me teary eyed throughout their performances. The best entertainer I’ve seen is Britney Spears. She can really keep the crowd entertained with her dancing. I would honestly say I would probably choose Michael Jackson any day over Britney. (If only I could see him live)

    Britney is not a “live” performer. She doesn’t actually sing live in concerts and events. She lip-synchs. I wouldn’t call Britney a live performer. I’d acknowledge Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, and Celine Dion as some of the best live performers. Mariah’s “Bringin’ On The Heartbreak” is a great song, I must say.

    just because Britney lipsyncs sometimes doesn’t mean she isn’t a great live performer she is out there on stage-that’s live isn’t it. Madonna lipsyncs I’ve even seen Christina do it on Saturday night live so does that mean they are great live performers-of course not-everyone needs to quit being so negative

    Mariah and Christina are two of the worst live performers. All Christina does during her live shows is ohhhh and aahhhhh, gets very annoying after 2 songs. She also uses a prerecorded backing track during the dance numbers which is almost as bad as lip-syncing. None of them have any stage presence and cannot dance. They might sound ok on the radio but as performers they are simply boring.

    Madonna didn’t lip-sync at all on her last world tour. Even during the parts with lots of vocal distortions. She sang those live and the DJ added the effects right on the spot. She did lip-sync in the 80’s.

    Madonna is awesome in concert as well as Britney.. nobody sings every note live when they are doing a high energy stage performance. there is always a backup voice-over.. Britney does sing live on some parts of the show, but its hard to do when the music is whipping her hair, and pulling her waist.. :) which I can’t wait to see more of.. I’ve only heard about Christina live,, and it wasn’t good.. and from what I’ve seen, I believe it… I guess that’s why she’s not mentioned.. poor peewee! what excuse are you gonna come with now? Janet is a great performer live also but I think Madonna is the best.. especially in her earlier days.

    It’s funny how some people took this poll seriously, I mean these DJs were just joking they even gave us a hint… look they included Britney. hmm… have you ever heard of humor? LMAO @ those people who said Christina is not a good performer. That means Stevie Wonder, Patti Labelle, B.B King and Aretha Franklin are idiots for praising her performing abilities. ;-P

    This survey isn’t a joke, just because you’re favorite girl ain’t on a list doesn’t mean it’s a fake, stupid survey..goodness, seriously dude..this crap is getting old lol. but anyways, know how this survey is about performers? performers, everyone knows Britney is one of the best performers out there. when they say live performers, it ain’t mean they gotta be singing live. it means you SEE them live (concerts) and not on TV, where things can be fixed and cut out, re-edited basically. live is live, a live show. I’ve been to Britney’s live shows, concerts, and I don’t look for the great singing or whatever, I look at it as a musical, a play…it’s entertainment. that’s what departs Britney and Christina…ones an entertainer/performer and ones a fantastic vocalist period. people and critics go say Christina’s shows are ok on behalf on her vocal talents and capable of singing live throughout but it is nothing close to what a show Britney can put on, nothing! bottom line: if I were in a mellow mood and lay back, I’d go to a Christina show and listen through…but if I was in a party mode, I’d go to Britney’s show….by the way, I personally think Christina should do small, coffee shop gigs…like what Justin did awhile ago. like John Mayer, because she has the voice and when you’re in a secluded area with just people around sitting and relaxing, your voice shows off much much better and you get better feedback because everyone is just focused on your voice and what you’re capable of. just my opinion.

    They had some list somewhere, and named top live performers. It was both men and women. Mariah and Christina were not on this, neither was Britney. Madonna, was like last on the list. I wish I could find it and post it.

    Live meaning in person, not whether the person lip synchs or not. And they are taking into account just vocal strength. All above should always do their concerts in circus themes, since all they do is vocal acrobatics.

    Christina & Janet perform best live. if you call Britney’s lip syncing & half-decent dancing performing, I guess she can be up on the list too, but she can’t touch Janet and Christina.

  10. FireorIce says:

    Janet has sung live plenty of times, its just this last album she been lip-synch about half her concerts. My guess is she just tired and figure she doesn’t have to prove herself. But still people go to concert to hear live vocals I for one was disappointed in her last concert. I mean Janet isn’t know for her vocals, but she has a nice voice and can carry a tune with out cracking. I was hoping her concert would be as good as the Velvet Rope, in which all of her songs were sung live.

    Going to her show just to watch an over price strip show. When I go to musical I go to Broadway at least you get talented actors as well as singers. Going by what critics say, then I haven’t read one report that complements Britney on her concerts. So give that ish a rest. As for Justin and Christina concert, Most were good, but you get few folks who don’t like Christina and would try to find faults about her. Most couldn’t deny she sound the best, maybe she didn’t get much screams mostly because audience was teenage girls waiting to see Justin. Don’t sit and give us a lecture, when you role model can’t hold a note without cracking and who relies heavily on pre-record tracks
