^ Agreed.

Also, I'm an unashamed Whitney fanboy. IMO, her "best" vocal performance would be "I'm Every Woman". Though I guess the ubiquitous "I Will Always Love You" would be "greater"...

I'm getting tired of the Bieber stuff. Even on freaking classical music videos on youtube, you always get the token "Bieber could NEVER compete with this!" guy. Well duh, he's not trying to. :lol:

Contrary to popular to belief: Greggie here doesn't hate Justin Bieber! Greggie just prefers to listen to good music and vocalists!

Seems like Celine Dion is worthy of the Top 10.
