You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton

Mariah, though she doesn’t really dance, Janet makes up for that

How are we defining talent? That seems awfully broad.

the criteria I would offer is singing (range, control), dancing, songwriting, and noticeably above avg on at least one instrument. that said, my once upon a future baby mama (Janet) doesn't make this list, nor does Mariah, Whitney, Madonna, etc etc. My one vote is cast for Aretha: piano prowess, writing, singing, (range includes her pinch hitting for Pavorotti on ND at the Grammys, remember that!), AND she could "rock steady" in her prime

If I had to pick someone over Mariah, Aretha is definitely a great voice. Really love her voice but don’t feel like I know enough of her songs
